Records & Registration

Non Matriculated Students

Help us to help you. Non-matriculated students are encouraged to read the policies below BEFORE submitting the personal information web form. Students who have applied to a New Paltz graduate program or are interested in enrolling in graduate courses, should NOT submit the personal information form on this site and should visit this site.

STEP 1: Read these policies

Non-matriculated students wishing to enroll in undergraduate courses during the summer or winter sessions, may do so when registration opens.

Non-matriculated students wishing to enroll in undergraduate the academic year (fall and spring) may do so only on/after date noted in the academic calendar.

Please note that course enrollment is subject to availability and is always at the discretion of the Department.

Enrollment limitations:

Non-matriculated Undergraduate Students

Non-matriculated Graduate Students

Two courses (max 8 credits/ semester)

To register for graduate courses, the student must complete an application, click here.

Can accumulate up to a maximum of 24 credits

Non-Degree graduate students are restricted to enrolling in (6 to 9) credits if applying to a degree program and using the credits for a transfer.


Must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or higher

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 Assistant Vice President of Graduate & Extended Learning.

Undergraduates must apply for admission after 24 credits to continue taking courses.

Students who wish to take undergraduate courses through the Department of Communication Disorders may need to obtain permission from the Department of Communication Disorders and/or they may need to apply to the Post BA Program in Communication Disorders in this link.




Students interested in taking undergraduate courses only and have not applied to a graduate program, should continue with steps 3 and 4, below.


Complete and submit the PERSONAL INFORMATION FORM and include all required information to avoid delays.


Your information will be received by Records & Registration and you will be notified by email about the creation of your student account. If any information is missing or if we are unable to process your request, you will be notified by email. You will receive instructions by email about when and how to register yourself.

Since non-matriculated students are the last cohort to be registered, it is possible that there will not be available seats once the registration opens for non-matriculated students.  Please plan accordingly.
