Non-matriculated Graduate Students

  Definition | Types | Registration | Health Forms | Transfer Credit | Parking 

 

Definition
The non-matriculated graduate student status includes students who have already been awarded a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree and wish to enroll in additional coursework without matriculating into a program. Upon request, the Registrar will provide an official transcript of all course work completed and grades earned. No official status pertains to non-matriculated students. As such, these students are ineligible for financial aid.


Which of the following types of non-matriculated students best describe you?

  • Students fulfilling pre-requisites for admission to a graduate program
    These students have already received their Bachelor’s degree and are taking additional course work in preparation for applying to a graduate program. Students in this category should register for classes under advisement.

  • Students fulfilling teaching certification requirements
    These students are taking additional undergraduate coursework to fulfill NYS teaching certification requirements.

  • Students who do not intend to enroll in a graduate program
    These students wish to remain non-degree seeking students enrolling in course work for personal fulfillment.

Registration
Non-matriculated graduate students may register for up to 9 credits without applying for admission. Students who wish to enroll in more than 6 credits are required to submit a Non-matriculated Student Waiver Form to the Graduate School.

Due to the non-matriculated status, students may need to obtain permission before enrolling in certain courses. To check a course’s prerequisites on the schedule of classes, click on the CRN or course title to view detailed course information including its description, prerequisites, restrictions, and length of course.  

Once you have obtained permission to register for classes, you may register in person in HAB 19 using this form.

 

Health Forms
All students must provide proof of immunization for mumps, measles, and rubella (MMR) and submit the meningitis information response form. For more information regarding our immunization requirements, the meningitis law, and to download the appropriate forms, please visit the Student Health Center’s website.

 

Transfer Credit
All course work completed while in a non-matriculated status is considered transfer credit. As such, should the student apply and be accepted for matriculation to a graduate program, only 6-9 graduate credits may be transferred upon approval of the advisor and Graduate Dean.

 

Parking
All students planning to use the parking facilities must obtain a parking hang-tag from the Parking Office in Haggerty Administration Building, Room 35. Parking permit applications may be downloaded from their website.
