Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2021

Matriculated and Non-Degree (Non-Matriculated) Students

Students are classified into two groups according to their enrollment status: matriculated and non-degree. Matriculated students are those who have met the College admission requirements and are enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree. Non-degree (non-matriculated) students are those who are enrolled for credit courses but who are not officially registered in a degree program. Credits earned as a non-matriculated student may later be transferred to a degree program.

Students may enroll as candidates for the bachelor’s degree or the associate’s degree. Bachelor’s degree programs are designed to be completed in four years and associate’s degree programs in two years. The programs for the junior and senior years of study, upper-division programs, are structured for smooth articulation for students graduating with associate’s degrees and students transferring from community colleges. The College has also developed auxiliary and pre-entry programs with support systems for those students returning to the classroom after an interruption in their education and for the not-so-recent high school graduate.
