Special Student Application

Students who do not wish to matriculate in a degree or certificate program may apply for status as a special student and take a class for credit.

Special students — non-degree program students — will receive a grade and be issued a transcript but do not have the same privileges as degree and certificate program students. Be sure to review the website and catalog for relevant policies pertaining to special student status.

To begin your application for special student status, enter your name and contact information in the form below. Once you click “submit,” you’ll be directed to our student information portal, Populi. You’ll receive an email from the Populi system with a link to your application so you can make changes or collect more information before submitting the complete application.

Remember, your application is not complete and it will not be reviewed until you have submitted the application fee and all required information.

The following form is not a general information form. If you have a question or require more information about IBS or its programs, please contact our offices directly before completing an application. The application fee is non-refundable.
