Student Status Option

Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) status provides access to graduate courses for those who are completing the Graduate Certificate in Software Design & Development. A bachelor's degree and 3.0 GPA in your last 90 quarter (60 semester) hours is required to apply for GNM status.

Those who desire to take one or two courses from the Master of Science in Computer Science & Software Engineering program without being enrolled as a graduate student should contact the STEM Graduate Office for further information at (425) 352-5490 or

Acceptance as a GNM student confers no guarantee or priority for later admission to the Graduate School for pursuit of a degree program. To maintain GNM status, the student must enroll for the quarter in which they applied. Accepted students will not lose their GNM status unless they miss four consecutive quarters of registration, or register as any other status.
