Student Category Definitions:

Matriculated Student – Applicants who have received a bachelor’s degree with A GPA of 3.0 who received a bachelor’s degree from an accredited undergraduate institution and have met the other admissions requirements may, at the discretion of the Admissions Review Committee, be accepted as a matriculated (pursing a degree) student.

Conditional Admissions Student - Applicants whose undergraduate GPA is under 3.0, may, at the discretion of the Admissions Review Committee, be accepted as conditional admissions students. Upon completion of a minimum of 6 and maximum of 9 credits with a grade point average of 3.0 (grades of B) or higher, the status of conditional admissions students will be reviewed and the committee may remove the conditional status and hold on the student’s continued registration. Financial aid is available per federal guidelines. If the student does not meet the 3.0 GPA criterion, he/she will be prohibited from enrolling in any further coursework and will be administratively withdrawn from the school.

Non-Matriculated Student (see Conditional Admissions) – Applicants (non-international) whose undergraduate GPA is under 3.0, may, at the discretion of the Admissions Review Committee, be accepted as non-matriculated (non-degree) students. Upon completion of 9 credits with a grade point average of 3.0 (grades of B) or higher, their status may then be reviewed for matriculation.

Non-Matriculated and Certificate Students - Applicants to “stand-alone” credit-bearing graduate certificate programs are accepted as non-matriculated students, and remain in this status for the duration of the program, even if the total number of credits exceeds nine. Non-degree applicants taking 3-9 credits may be considered as non-matriculated students. No financial aid is available per federal guidelines.
