Student Status Option

Graduate Non-Matriculated (GNM) status provides access to graduate courses for those who desire to take one or two courses from the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Engineering program without being enrolled as a graduate student. A bachelor's degree and 3.0 GPA in your last 90 quarter (60 semester) hours is required to apply for GNM status.

To learn more about GNM status, prospective students should contact the STEM Graduate Office for further information at (425) 352-5490 or

Acceptance as a GNM student confers no guarantee or priority for later admission to the Graduate School for pursuit of a degree program. To maintain GNM status, the student must enroll for the quarter in which they applied. GNM status is not an option for applicants on an F1 visa.
