First-Time Self-Service

A non-degree student is not enrolled at Salem State in a degree program. Are you interested in testing the waters/taking a class to see what it's like? Are you a student taking classes somewhere else wanting to get ahead in the summer?


New Non-Degree students may use our First-Time Self-Service for Non-degree Students, which lets you create a student account and register online for the first time.
