Applicants for Non-Matriculation

As the Graduate Admissions Office is working in a virtual environment, we encourage you to submit your supplemental application materials to for processing. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted for review purposes.  Please email us at​ with any questions.​

The application for non-matriculation requires proof of receipt of the bachelor's degree. A $75.00 application fee will be added to your tuition bill upon enrollment. 

Acceptance to non-matriculated status does not guarantee admittance to courses. Class sections may be filled early during registration, many courses have prerequisites, and some courses and programs are not open to non-matriculants. Applicants for non-matriculated status should confer with the appropriate graduate advisor prior to filing their applications for admission in order to determine their eligibility for the course, the likelihood of their being able to register for the course, and to get the advisor's approval on the admissions application.

Non-matriculated students must obtain permission from the graduate advisor each semester before registering.

Graduate non-matriculants, except for those who have a master's or higher degree, or those who are cooperating teachers with tuition waivers, may take no more than 12 credits at Queens College in this status.

Non-matriculants who wish to matriculate must meet all requirements for admission to the particular program. Students should bear in mind that admission with non-matriculated status does not guarantee subsequent acceptance for matriculation, nor that courses taken as a non-matriculant will be credited toward the degree.

Non-matriculants who have not achieved a B average after completing 12 credits will not be permitted to matriculate.

Please note: Applicants on student or exchange visitor visas (F-1 or J-1) are not eligible to apply for nonmatriculated status.
