Non-Degree Seeking/Other Students

Non-Degree Seeking

A “non-degree seeking student” is a student who wishes to attend Calhoun Community College but does not wish to pursue a degree or certificate. For unconditional admission and to be classified as a non-degree seeking student, applicants must have on file at the institution a completed application for admission, signature form (in-state residency certification), primary form of identification, official high school transcript or GED certificate and official transcripts from all previously attending institutions.

A non-degree student who has earned a Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university is only required to submit an official transcript form the degree granting institution. If a student with a Bachelor’s degree wishes to have the transcript evaluated for transfer credit, official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records prior to the evaluation.

Non-degree seeking students may be conditionally admitted pending receipt of official transcripts. Failure to submit official transcripts by the end of first semester of enrollment will prevent future registration and release of official Calhoun transcripts. Non-degree seeking students will not receive federal funding for aid. Non-degree seeking students who would like to change their enrollment status to degree seeking must meet with an academic advisor and complete a Request for Change of Program of Study form.

Please be advised transcripts are considered official if they are :

  • Mailed directly from the high school and/or college or university to Calhoun Community College:

Attn: Admissions Office
PO Box 2216
Decatur, AL 35609

  • Sent electronically by an authorized delivery agent selected by the institution for processing orders of electronic transcripts to incomingtranscripts@calhoun.edu, or
  • Hand delivered official copy in an originally sealed envelope.

Faxed and/or emailed copies are considered unofficial and will not satisfy your admissions requirement.
