Non-Degree, Post-Baccalaureate Study

An individual with a bachelor’s degree from a regionally- accredited four-year college or university may enroll in some graduate courses without being admitted to a degree program. The following must be submitted to enroll as a Post-Baccalaureate Study (PBS) student:

  • Application and non-refundable $25 application fee
  • Official transcript from degree-granting college or university, in sealed envelopes or sent electronically to Meredith College from the institution(s).
  • For MBA program, a current resume is also required.
  • For MED program, a copy of teacher’s license is also required.

In most programs, a maximum of six graduate-level credit hours taken in this manner may be applied toward graduate degree requirements at Meredith. PBS students may register for classes only after degree-seeking students are registered or upon a space-available basis with approval of the program director or department head. If a PBS student decides to apply to be a degree candidate, all requirements for admission must be met, including the non-refundable application fee for the graduate program. Enrollment as a PBS student does not guarantee program admission.

Students may take prerequisite courses in Meredith’s undergraduate classes as PBS students.
