CE Student FAQs

Q. Can I audit, i.e. pay tuition, but not complete the assignments and forgo a grade?

To keep the standard of excellence and the classroom experience rich for all students, we require that everyone comes to class and is prepared to the best of their ability. Because our classes are small and personalized, your opinions, curiosities, challenges, and insights contribute to enrich the course. For these reasons, Maitripa College does not have an Audit enrollment option.

Q. Can I apply my credits to a degree if I decide that I want to become a full-time, degree program student?

Credits accrued from successfully completed courses may be applied toward degree requirements, should the student gain admission to a degree program in the future. Currently, up to 24 credits may be internally transferred from CE into a degree program for courses taken within the five years prior to an offer of admissions to a degree program.

Q. Are there any limitations to the courses I can take as a CE student?

  • Registration for courses prioritizes degree students before continuing education students; continuing education students may enroll when and if space permits

  • Faculty and Instructors may determine whether their classes are for degree students only or open to continuing education student enrollment

  • Faculty and Instructors may determine prerequisites for their courses on a semester-by-semester basis, and/or to grant continuing education students permission to enroll on a case-by-case basis

Q. Can I apply for a scholarship?

At this time, we are able to provide scholarships to full-time degree program students only. However, we do have a payment plan option. Check out the Financial Aid, Scholarships and Payment Plans page for more about our payment plans.
