What’s the difference between degree-seeking and non-degree seeking?

Degree-seeking students enroll in courses with the intent to one day earn a four-year degree from Carolina. Non-degree seeking students enroll for personal or professional benefit. Degree-seeking students will need to submit their transcript as part of their Part-Time Classroom Studies application. Additionally, degree-seeking students are eligible for financial aid, whereas non-degree seeking students are not.
