Southern Oregon University is always happy to see students return to complete their degrees and progress toward future career goals. Returning SOU students can easily start right where they left off.
Non-Degree Seeking Students
Some students may may wish to apply for Non-Degree Seeking status. SOU students classified as Non-Degree Seeking do not turn in official documents, and the application is free, however, there are limitations which should be considered.
Oregon residents age 65 or older may audit SOU classes without paying tuition, when space is available and the instructor consents. However, course fees, if the course has any, still apply.
The following information is intended to offer clarification of certain Southern Oregon University academic policies. SOU’s academic policies can be found in the Academic Policies section of the Catalog.
