Can I take doctoral classes without formally applying to the doctoral program?

Maybe. The Director may extend an offer to take one course as a post-baccalaureate applicant to a promising candidate with great potential. In this situation the individual must have the necessary GRE scores or provide other evidence (e.g., publications, research experience, grant-writing success) demonstrating the potential to succeed in a Ph.D. program.
