The Graduate School welcomes non-matriculated students on a limited basis, and provides a path to matriculation if they so choose. Non-matriculated students may enroll for a maximum of two courses (6 credits) per semester and for a “lifetime” maximum of 12 credits. The Graduate School Dean has the authority to waive this limit if there is sufficient justification.
Those students in good academic standing (GPA of 3.0 or better) who wish to matriculate should apply to the program of their choice before completing 12 credits. They must submit a new application and two personal statements. Previously submitted transcripts and test scores may be used to support the application for matriculation, if they have been retained by the Graduate School. New letters of recommendation are required, however, even if letters from faculty members of the program being applied to are included as well.
Note - non-matriculating students are not eligible for student housing, financial aid or student health insurance, nor can they take advantage of the student health services.
