Guest Students

Non-degree students receive transcripts and full academic credit for courses successfully completed. Non-degree enrollment is limited to two courses each term.

To be admitted as a guest student at the undergraduate level, you must have earned a high school diploma, a GED certificate or the equivalent. Those who have previously been denied admission to a degree program at Kettering may not be admitted as a guest student.

When are classes offered?

Kettering University has four 11 week terms per academic year. Generally speaking, these are Summer (July through September), Fall (October through December), Winter (January through March) and Spring (April through June).

For exact beginning and ending dates of a term, see the Kettering Academic Calendar.

What courses can I take?

Guest Students may take any class as long as they meet the class prerequisites and there is space available. Individual courses for upcoming terms may be viewed on Kettering’s Dynamic Schedule.

What is the Cost?

Guest students are not eligible for Financial Aid through Kettering University. For the 2020-2021 academic year, starting July 1 tuition for one Undergraduate 4 credit course is $5,920.
