Non-Degree Programs

UL Lafayette’s Graduate School offers two programs for students who are not looking to pursue a specific degree.  

If you’re looking for personal or professional growth, a non-degree program may be right for you. Our Entrée program is for students with a baccalaureate degree looking to enroll in graduate or undergraduate courses at UL Lafayette. Our Master’s +30 program is open to anyone who already has a Master’s degree, however it is designed for Louisiana educators, teachers, and administrators.  

Note that any program of study that does not lead to a degree or certificate awarded by UL Lafayette is not eligible for financial aid.
