    Taking Non Degree Grad Classes -- Necessary to Report in Application?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi Everyone,

    I am thinking of enrolling in some Non-Degree Graduate Statistics courses offered via Stanford's Online platform. More specifically, it is the Stanford Center for Professional Development.

    Is it necessary that I report my grade that I achieve in this class on my application when I apply to Econ PhD programs? I just graduated undergrad, and I am working for a couple of years before applying to PhD programs. I'm not necessarily looking to take these classes as a way to boost my application -- rather I'm just taking these classes out of interest. If I do well, I will certainly think about puttin them on my application, but if I don't do well, am I obligated to still report these grades?

    Thanks!

    Yes, you are obligated to report any classes taken, even non-degree.

    What about classes taken from non-credit courses? For example, I am also thinking of taking classes from Georgia Tech Professional Education program which offers non-degree non-credit classes through a partnership with Udacity.
