Degree is not required for CISSP however, there is a 5 year experience requirement in CISSP domains to achieve the certification. If you do not possess required experience, you can still do the CISSP exam as an associate.
To get the associate exam, you are required to pass the CISSP exam. But you will be given as associate certificate because of the incomplete years of experience. Once you have the 5 years of experience, you can request for you cissp certificate. Please note, you either need 5 years experience before the exam OR 5years after the exam. Meaning if you write the exam now and you get an associate certificate, you are required to spend the next 5 years for the required experience, if not, you will have to write the exam again.
