Non-Matriculated Students

Non-Matriculated Students

Students who have been admitted for credit course work may classify themselves as non-degree-seeking or non-matriculated students. The non-degree status may be used only when it is not necessary for the student’s previous academic records to be on file.

The non-degree status shall not be used with degree-seeking students, certificate-seeking students, students seeking any type of financial aid (Social Security, veteran benefits, federal grants, scholarships, etc.), or by international students on an F-1/M-1 visa.

Non-degree-seeking students are not eligible for financial aid.

Students may take up to twelve (12) credit hours as a non-degree-seeking/non-matriculated student. After obtaining twelve (12) credits, students must then become matriculated/degree-seeking students.

Non-degree-seeking students may be required to submit placement scores to register for certain courses. Please see the college catalog, or speak with an academic advisor.


We strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid as soon as you start your application to ensure that you will have the aid you need.

Once you are admitted, there are Next Steps to Becoming a General that you’ll also need to complete.
