Stockton provides opportunities to enroll in courses and sample programs before completing an application to become officially matriculated. A student who is interested in taking credit courses but not presently working toward a degree (except those in the Doctor of Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy programs) may enroll as a non degree/non-matriculated student provided he or she meets the University's admissions requirements. Persons interested in study as non-matriculated students should complete the Non-Matriculated Graduate Student Registration Form and provide the documents required (depending on program). However, registration for classes is on a space-available basis once all the matriculated students have registered. No more than 6 graduate credits may be attempted in non-matriculated status.
After sampling graduate courses as a non-matriculated student, a student is encouraged to apply for formal admission to the program. Non-matriculated registration will take place at the beginning of each term. Please review the Academic Calendar for registration dates. Non-matriculated students are responsible for all policies and procedures as outlined by the Graduate Bulletin and the individual policy and procedure manual of the academic program in whose courses they are enrolled.
*Note: graduate programs may require either undergraduate or other graduate courses as prerequisites. Non-matriculated students are not eligible for financial aid or graduate assistantships, nor are they eligible to live in on-campus housing.
