Non-Matriculated Students

The non-matriculated student category designates students who are taking courses in the College of Graduate Studies but who are not matriculated in a program. To be eligible for registration in a graduate course as a non-matriculated student, the candidate must have a Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college or university and meet the prerequisite requirement for the course(s) the candidate wishes to take. Furthermore, the candidate will be responsible for obtaining approval from the Course Instructor(s). Final approval must be obtained from the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies. Due to space limitations, priority for non-matriculated student status will be given to Upstate Medical University employees, students matriculated in the University's other colleges, and then students matriculated at other accredited colleges and universities. Non-matriculated students need to complete the appropriate Registration forms and submit it to the Office of the Registrar.

Course Work Taken by Students Having Non-Matriculated Status

The College of Graduate Studies will not automatically accept for credit any course work taken by students having non-matriculated status at the Upstate Medical University, College of Graduate Studies, who subsequently matriculate into the graduate program. However, upon written petition to the Dean, the student may request that such course be applied to the student's record and be calculated in the cumulative GPA, if applicable to the student's program of study.
