We offer a variety of opportunities for interested students to participate in a chosen program before application. Sample a course and earn credit that may be applied to your degree, should you apply. Course sampling opportunities are easily accessible for those looking to get a feel for one our degree programs, to work with a specific professor or, as for many, just to dip a toe back into the classroom setting. Alumni and the greater Hamline community are welcome. View the options below.
Sampler Courses provide a great way to try out the program before applying. Credits will count toward degree completion, should you choose to apply.

Adult special status allows students who are not seeking a degree to take graduate-level courses on a space-available basis. A short application process is required.
Interested students may audit our courses on a space-available basis. MFA writing courses are not available for audit. Students who audit a course will not receive academic credit, but will receive the designation "AU" on Hamline University transcripts. Those who audit participate in all classroom activities, projects, and assignments but will not receive any evaluation of their work.
Tuition cost for auditors is $500 for a four-credit course. Contact 651-523-2047 for more information.

"The teaching assistantship was one of the best learning experiences I have had at Hamline. I learned not just how to be a better teacher, but how to be a better reader and writer as well. As a result, I feel confident going into a job search with quality teaching experience on my resume, and I'm grateful to have a semester's worth of experience to draw from when I get a job."
