Applicants who have studied at an institution of higher education and have been authorized to take courses at Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico to complete requirements from their institution, are classified as special students. Also, those applicants who are not interested in obtaining an academic degree from PUPR or a grade except for use as professional development course work, are classified as special students. An applicant desiring to enroll as a special student must submit:
An application for admission.
Payment of thirty dollars ($30.00) non refundable application fee with the completed application form.
Submit an authorization as Special Student.
If the person wants to change this classification to a Regular Student, he or she will have to fulfill all the requirements of the Admissions Office, take the prerequisites and obtain C or more. A Special Student does not qualify for financial aid until the classification to Regular Student has been made.
