Non-Degree Study

Welcome non-degree (non-matriculated) students!

non-matriculatedHundreds of students from throughout the state (and beyond) choose to take a class or two each semester either on campus or online. A “non-matriculated” or “non-degree” student is defined as one who has not been accepted into a degree program. There are a variety of reasons why students elect to take this path of study such as:

  • Taking a course required for their degree which is not currently offered by their home institution
  • Improving their GPA in anticipation of applying to graduate school
  • Getting a head start on a degree program by taking some prerequisite courses
  • Verifying interest in a program by sampling a course or two
  • Preparing for professional certifications (ex: CPA exam)
  • Exploring a personal or professional interest

Whatever your reason we welcome all visiting students to SUNY Polytechnic Institute and we hope you enjoy your experience here!
