Admission of Nonmatriculating (Nondegree, Noncertificate, Noncertification) Students

Students who meet the Georgian Court admissions requirements may enroll in undergraduate courses to meet educational goals other than attaining a bachelor’s degree, certificate, or certification. Students who wish to take courses for self-enrichment must provide appropriate educational verification. The educational verification must represent the highest level of education attained by the student. Official college transcripts are required to demonstrate completion of course prerequisites.


Students who do not have a baccalaureate degree and wish to take credits for self-enrichment must realize that the credits will be held in escrow until the time of matriculation. Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree may take a maximum of eleven self-enrichment courses. Students must declare an intention to matriculate into a degree, certificate or certification program once eleven self-enrichment courses have been completed. An application for matriculation must be filed with the Office of Admissions at that time. If accepted as a matriculating student, credits earned as a nonmatriculating student will be evaluated toward the degree, certificate, or certification program.

Prerequisite Courses

Students who have a baccalaureate degree may choose to take courses as prerequisites for master’s degrees, certifications, certificates, and the Georgian Court University postbaccalaureate accelerated nursing degree program. It is the student’s responsibility to register for courses approved by their program. An admission application, application fee, and official transcripts from previously attended institutions are required. The student’s enrollment classification for prerequisite courses is considered nonmatriculating.

Visiting Students

Students who do not have a degree, but are enrolled in or accepted at another college or university and wish to transfer credits to that institution, should obtain written approval from that institution prior to taking any course(s) at Georgian Court.
