Non-Matriculated Student Enrollment Procedures
Non-matriculated students are those who are enrolled in credit courses but have not been officially accepted into a degree program. Credits earned as a non-matriculated student may later be transferred to a degree program.
Enrolling as a Non-Matriculated Student:
- Submit the online Non-Matriculation Application.
- Request an official transcript be forwarded to St. Lawrence University, Office of Graduate Programs, 23 Romoda Drive, Canton, NY 13617, or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. In order to enroll in graduate coursework, we must be able to verify that the minimum of a bachelor's degree has been awarded. If you earned a degree at St. Lawrence University, submit only an advising transcript of your coursework.
New York State Public Health Law requires up-to-date immunization records for those students enrolling in two or more courses. You will be required to provide proof of MMR and MMV immunizations. A meningococcal meningitis waiver must be completed if you have not received the MMV vaccination. Per New York State COVID-19 guidance, classroom spaces have returned to full occupancy, and vaccinated students and faculty must wear masks until further notice. COVID-19 vaccinations and boosters are required and proof of vaccination must be uploaded to the Medicat Portal prior to attending class(es). Health forms are available by emailing email@example.com.
Non-matriculated students must register for coursework, during the open registration period, by completing the online form found here: Graduate Course Registration Form.
- As a non-matriculated student, you may register for four courses before you are required to matriculate into a program of study.
- Athletic Graduate Assistants are permitted to take only two classes for free, rather than the usual three courses per semester as a non-matriculant.
- Research Assistants must be matriculated in order to receive scholarship tuition benefits.
- Non-matriculated students will not be assigned an advisor. This option is recommended for self-directed individuals only.
