Courses for Non-Degree Students

MCPHS makes online courses available to individuals who are looking for a flexible education but are not enrolled in a University academic program. Through these courses, career-changers, lifelong learners, and anyone looking to pursue an academic interest, can advance their professional path while balancing their personal life.

And just like the curricula of the University's undergraduate and graduate degree programs, these courses are both immersive and expansive, allowing students to explore a broad spectrum of interest areas and dive deep into the subject matter of each course. These 15-week courses are semester-based and asynchronous with weekly deadlines and requirements for successful progression.

Students interested in exploring our non-degree courses can check back in the summer for our Fall 2020 offerings.

How to Register

Once you identify which course you're interested in taking, you can register for the course by creating an account and paying your tuition fees.

Undergraduate courses cost $445 per credit hour, and graduate courses cost $990 per credit hour. Please note that full payment is due at the time of registration, and that your course seat will be reserved once full payment is received and processed. A confirmation email will then be sent to the email address connected to your account.

You'll be granted access to your course via the Blackboard learning management system by the semester start date. You'll then be fully prepared to begin your flexible, online education experience.
