Visiting Graduate Student Registration

If our location is convenient for you, take classes here, and put the credits toward your graduate degree. This option may be suitable for public school teachers, as well as a variety of other professions.

Registration Dates

Fall 2020

Open registration for visiting graduate students is now open.

If You Have Never Registered or Applied to Salem State

We offer a streamlined, self-serve process so visiting graduate students can register. Once you complete the self-service process, you will receive a login and student account to register.

If You Have Registered Before

Students who have applied to or attended Salem State before, either as a graduate or as an undergraduate, will not be able to use the Self-Service tool. If this describes you, select "Account Help" from the Navigator login page to reset your password, or contact the Student Navigation Center.

Get Started

When you visit Salem State, you’ll be impressed by how the quality of our classes and how they align with your degree needs.

Choose Your Classes

To search for classes, go to Navigator and click class search. Keep in mind that you can take up to 3 graduate courses or 9 graduate credits before you have to enroll in a Salem State program.

Talk to Your Program Coordinator

You aren’t required to get advice from a program coordinator to visit as a graduate student, but you may want to reach out if you think you will switch to Salem State for your graduate program.


Return to Navigator to register, and click new non-degree or non-credit.
