  • College students from other institutions who take credit courses at Fairfield during any semester (up to three courses) with a goal to transfer those credits to another academic institution.
  • Students seeking to start or complete their bachelor’s degree by taking credit courses in any semester (up the three per term) as a part-time, non-matriculated, visiting student. Student may choose to later apply to Fairfield University, and if admitted, the credits seamlessly apply towards their degree.
  • Individuals taking a credit course (or a non-credit course) in subject area of interest for personal or professional enrichment.
