The FPE program is offered through special session. This permits qualified non-matriculated students, i.e. students who have not yet been admitted to the FPE program, to take FPE classes. This option allows students to sample the course offerings so they can decide if they want to pursue the degree. It also allows working professionals to enhance their skills in particular areas.
Up to 12 units (3 classes) taken as a non-matriculated student may be applied to your degree once you apply to the program. Students who apply as non-matriculated students will be contacted by the graduate coordinator to verify they have the proper preparation to be successful in a particular class.
