Special: A student who holds a baccalaureate or graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution and who intends to enroll for a specific course or courses; or, a student otherwise qualified for admission who intends to enroll for a course with no intention of completing a degree; or, a student intending to qualify for Regular standing who has yet to complete the application process but who documents prior baccalaureate work and qualifying grade point average from a regionally accredited institution.
