A visiting/non-degree or transient student is one who is still enrolled in high school or has begun his or her education at another college or university and intends to return there. The university permits full- and part-time study in the summer as well as during the fall and spring semesters. Enrollment must be for credit-bearing courses.
Qualified high school students in Northeast Ohio may attend classes at CWRU as a post-secondary enrollment option. The Pre-College Scholars Program offers highly motivated students a chance to enroll in challenging college courses prior to high school graduation.
Summer Term Enrollment
Students from other colleges or universities or high school graduates who are not degree candidates at Case Western Reserve University may complete a Visiting Undergraduate Student Summer Application. Applications will be reviewed on a date received basis, but must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the start of summer classes.
Academic Year Enrollment (Fall/Spring)
Students attending other colleges or universities, who are in good academic standing and eligible to return to their previous institution, may apply for full or part-time status. A visiting student during the academic year need not apply for formal admission to CWRU, but must submit the Visiting Undergraduate Student Fall/Spring Application.
Full-time undergraduate students in good academic standing at the participating schools listed below may, without incurring any additional tuition charges, enroll for one undergraduate course each semester at CWRU. Enrollment is on a space available basis and students must meet the prerequisites for the courses they wish to take. Graduate courses, independent studies, and internships are restricted to students in the Cross Registration Program. Cross-registration is available during fall and spring semesters only. Complete the Cross Registration Form.
