Academic Enrichment Studies
Academic Enrichment Studies offers you the flexibility to take courses of interest to you at a discounted rate without dedicating yourself to a degree program.
If you are a transient student (someone enrolled as a degree candidate at another institution), you can request to take a course on the University of Dayton's campus or via distance learning through Academic Enrichment Studies. You must be in good academic standing at your home institution. Before your registration request is processed you must complete the Guest Student Certification form and return it to Special Programs and Continuing Education. It's wise to check with your dean before registering to ensure your home institution will grant credit for a course taken at UD.
All of our professional and continuing education programs are specifically designed to help you achieve your individual educational goals as a nontraditional, part-time student. Academic Enrichment Studies allows you to take classes at a discounted rate, making an already affordable education easier to manage financially.
The cost per credit hour for classes taken through Academic Enrichment Studies is discounted 40 percent off the regular undergraduate tuition rate. Whether you take one class at a time or several classes in one semester, the cost per credit hour is the same.
