Non-Matriculating Students

Non-matriculated students are students who are interested in enrolling in the courses offered for the degree programs, without pursuing a formal degree. Such students must contact the Office of Admissions, and will be expected to present a digital portfolio for placement within the program. Students who have previously enrolled as non-matriculated students and have earned a grade of C or better in the courses completed to date, may enroll in any course for which the pre-requisite has been met. Students who have not met the published pre-requisites for a course must receive the approval to enroll by the Office of Admissions, which will be based on both the student’s potential for success in the course as demonstrated by their portfolio and previous coursework, and the availability of space.

If a Non-Matriculated student (enrolled for credit/evaluation) matriculates to the BFA Degree or Certificate Program, the difference in cost per credit previously earned compared to the current academic year tuition rate will be charged as a matriculation fee and be due promptly.

How to become a Non-Matriculating Student:

  • Copy of High School Transcript, Diploma, or GED

  • Copy of College Transcript(s) showing required course prerequisites if applicable

  • A digital portfolio is required to determine appropriate course placement.

    Portfolio images should be recent work and at least 300x300 pixels at 72 DPI.  Portfolio reviews may be scheduled to provide preliminary assessments to prospective non-matriculating students who are unsure of the current state of their art works.  We may also suggest students take non-credit courses beforehand to help them build and prepare them for submission.
