• Special Admission

    The Hamline School of Business offers special admission for qualified master-level applicants who do not wish to be degree candidates or who would like to try out our classes for Public Administration and Nonprofit Management programs. 

    Students may take up to three courses under special admission status. Courses may later be applied toward degree requirements provided satisfactory grades were achieved.


    A special admission applicant must hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.

    Special admission is not open to international applicants.
