Non-degree students: Take almost any Cornell course & study with university faculty

Through Cornell SCE, you can earn Cornell credits and take advantage of university resources without enrolling in a degree program.

Whether you want to explore a new interest, enhance your resume, or strengthen your professional skills, you can choose from thousands of regular university courses during the fall and spring semesters.

Your grades and credits will be recorded on an official Cornell transcript. You can generally transfer these credits to a degree at Cornell or elsewhere—but always check with your school or institution.

Eligibility: Anyone high school age and older can take fall/spring courses at Cornell, with the exception of Cornell degree candidates, who are not eligible to participate in part-time study in the fall or spring.
