Yes, you can take classes as a Graduate Non-matriculated student. Applying for GNM status is suitable for post-baccalaureate students who want to take graduate courses, but who have not been admitted by the Graduate School to a degree program. GNM status allows qualified students to earn graduate credits in an area of interest. A total of 12 credits can apply toward a graduate degree.
6. Can I use my UW/State Tuition Exemption?
Information about the UW/State Tuition Exemption Program is available, and it is very important to also read the Nursing-specific restrictions on using this exemption. If you are eligible and are applying for this, please use the UW Bothell form.
