Graduate Non-Matriculated status

Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) status allows post-baccalaureate students who are not currently enrolled in a graduate degree program to take graduate courses and apply the credits toward degree requirements, should they later be accepted into a graduate program. Graduate School Memo 37 enumerates the policies regarding GNM status.

ISE students with GNM status can transfer up to 12 graduate credits toward a future Master of Industrial & Systems Engineering (MISE) degree, if they are later accepted to the program. Only Global Integrated Systems Engineering (GISE) students may enroll in GNM status. Engineering Leadership students are not eligible for GNM status.


  • GNM status confers no guarantee or priority for later admission to the MISE program.
  • International students requiring an F-1 or I-20 visa are not eligible to participate in the GNM program.
  • GNM status cannot be applied retroactively. Students must apply for GNM before taking classes.
  • GNM students are expected to maintain a grade-point-average of at least 3.00.
