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. 


  • 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.
