A matriculated student is a student admitted to a program (degree or certificate) at the College. Matriculated students are entitled to participate in the Title IV Federal Financial Aid Program and have priority when registering for classes with limited enrollment. In order to remain matriculated, a student must enroll and attend at least one course during the academic year (not to exceed a 12-month period). A student who does not register for at least one course per academic year will lose matriculated status. A student who chooses to re-matriculate must reapply for admission to a program and if applying to a different program, may have to satisfy different program requirements.
A non-matriculated student is a student not admitted to a program and may register on a first-come, first-served basis for any course, providing the student has met pre-requisites and there is space available. Non-matriculated students should matriculate before the completion of 9 semester hours and begin pursuing graduation requirements. An advisor will help students make these decisions.
