Non-Degree Enrollments

Non degree-seeking students are not required to apply for admission but must provide required documentation and meet any prerequisite requirements for courses by qualifying through a placement test or by providing an official transcript from a prior institution. Non-degree seeking students who only want to take courses for personal or professional enrichment are not required to take a placement test for classes that do not have prerequisites.

Peninsula College may enroll a student who:

1. Is competent to profit from the curricular offering of the College.

2. Would not by his or her presence or conduct, create a disruptive atmosphere within the College inconsistent with the purposes of the institution.

3. Is eighteen years of age or older, or:

  • a. Who is aged 16 years or older and meets the provisions of the “Title II of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.” Individuals admitted in such classes will be allowed to continue as long as they are able to demonstrate, through measurable academic progress, an ability to benefit.
  • b. Who is enrolled in a Peninsula College sponsored youth program.
  • c. Who is enrolled in a basic education or noncredit class with approval from the appropriate dean.
  • d. Who has approval from the Enrollment Exception Committee or designee(s).

Peninsula College may accept for exceptional admissions students who are under age 18 who are approved by the Enrollment Exception Committee or designee(s). Those who do not have a high school diploma or equivalent will be admitted as non-degree seeking students only. Enrolling as an underage student does not constitute admission to the College or a program of study and does not assure future quarter registration. It is not Peninsula College’s intent to replace or duplicate the functions of the local public schools.

The Enrollment Exception Committee or designee(s) will be appointed by the Vice President for Student Services. Students must supply all required documentation in consideration for approval to the Enrollment Exception Committee. Contact Pirate Central at (360) 417-6340 for more information.
