Noncredit Admissions

    Admission to the university is not required to enroll in a noncredit (professional or personal development) course.

    There are four easy ways to register for most noncredit programs:

    1. Through the link provided for most courses on their individual course description pages
    2. By phone at (800) 345-9472 or (815) 753-0277
    3. By fax to (815) 753-6900
    4. By mail to: NIU Outreach Noncredit Services, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL 60115

    If you wish to enroll in a credit course, you can apply to the university as either a nondegree student (undergraduate) or a student-at-large (graduate).
