Admissions & Aid
For students who have a passion to learn but prefer not to commit to a full program.
If you wish to fulfill prerequisites for advanced study, sharpen and advance your professional or career-specific skills, or want a learning experience in an area of interest, nondegree study is the path for you. At Brooklyn College, academically qualified individuals who wish to continue their education without pursuing a full degree can enroll in credit-bearing courses as nondegree (nonmatriculated) students.
An undergraduate nondegree (nonmatriculated) student is a student who enrolls in credit-bearing classes for personal enrichment and is not working towards a degree at Brooklyn College. Students who are enrolled in a degree (matriculated) program at another university/college must submit a Visiting Student Application.
All nondegree applicants must, at least, have completed high school, have a GED/TASC certificate, or have the equivalence of a U.S. high school diploma.
$65. The nonrefundable application processing fee is payable when your application is processed. It is not a registration fee. It is a processing fee that is due whether or not you register for courses.
Students enrolled in nondegree courses must pay all applicable tuition costs at the determined New York State resident or nonresident rate. See Tuition costs.
Acceptance into the college does not guarantee course availability. It is the sole responsibility of the student to verify course availability. Nondegree students register for classes on a space available basis only. Nondegree students are not eligible for financial aid, scholarships, or grants.
