It won't be a problem. Just call or email your the admissions officer at the school you'll be attending and explain to him/her what you just wrote here (non-degree-granting program, etc.). Schools allow amendments to applications for smaller things that would not have had a material impact on the admission decision. Asha gave us a talking-to at orientation (i.e., after everyone was already living in New Haven) about how we needed to be sure to amend as soon as possible anything on our applications that wasn't accurate. You'll only run into problems if you're doing something like hiding a transcript with terrible grades or neglecting to mention a DWI.

This. They don't care about honest mistakes, especially if those honest mistakes would have no bearing on their decision. Just get in touch with the school and let them know what happened; they'll have a process to take care of it (which will most likely be you submitting the missing info and them handling it).

This could only potentially become a problem if you aren't forthright about it. It seems like a non-issue and a quick phone call to the Dean of Admissions and a fax of the appropriate documents would likely be the end of it.
