Non-Degree Decisions

First time undergraduate students and readmitted students must log in here to either accept or reject non-degree courses they completed before matriculating. Decisions determine whether or not non-degree courses are posted to a student's undergraduate transcript. Students can change their decisions as often as desired before the official deadline. Decisions cannot be changed and are FINAL after the deadline. Courses for which students do not submit decisions are referred to as "pending." The manner in which pending courses are handled after the deadline varies by program. It is recommended you contact your academic advisor or your program's advising center for further clarification on pending courses.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What happens if I do not make a decision about my non-degree coursework?
Decisions left blank after the deadline are subject to pending rules of the college the student was enrolled at the start of the semester. Courses with blank decisions are referred to as "pending". View rules for pending classes.

When I log in, the program listed is not my current program. What does this mean?
The program you see under your records reflects the program you were in when the class information was generated. You will be held to the standards and rules of the program listed, even if you changed programs.

Do non-degree courses count towards a student's gpa?
Non-degree courses count towards a student's cumulative gpa if a student decides to accept the credit.

Does AP credit count as non-degree course work?
Course credit earned via AP Exams are not considered non-degree courses and therefore will not be reflected on this website. Speak with your advisor for further information about AP credit.

What should I do if I am making a decision about a course I completed through ECE/Non-Degree that I previously earned AP credit for and see posted on my UConn transcript?
You cannot receive credit for the same course twice. If AP credit has already been posted to your UConn transcript, and you Accept your ECE/Non-Degree credit, then your ECE/Non-Degree grade will count toward your GPA. If you Reject the Non-Degree credit, only the AP credits will count. That is, you won’t have a grade associated with the course, but you will have the credits toward your UConn degree. Contact your advisor and/or dean’s office for further questions or clarification on your individual situation.

Can I change my decisions after I submit them on this website?
Students can log in and make changes to their decisions any time before the deadline. When the deadline passes, student will be locked out from editing their decisions and their most recent decision will be final!
