Matriculated vs. Non-Matriculated Students

A matriculated student is one who has applied for and been accepted in a specific degree program through the Admissions Office. Matriculated students in good standing may take up to 18 credit hours each semester. If a student wishes to enroll in more than 18 hours each term, an academic advisor would need to review the student's history and planned course load before approving an increase in the maximum load permitted each term. A matriculated student may apply for financial aid. If you have any questions, please contact

A non-matriculated student is one who would like to take a few classes at the college but is not interested in enrolling in a degree program at this time. Non-mats may enroll in up to 11.99 credits each semester. Financial aid is not available to non-matriculated students. If a non-mat would like to take 12 credits or more each term, they must apply to the college through the Admissions Office. If you have any questions, please contact
