A non-matriculant (non-degree student) is one who may take courses for credit but has not been formally admitted to a degree program. Under this status, students are not eligible for any degree at Lehman College, nor does coursework taken as a non-matriculant guarantee admission to a degree program. If subsequently admitted to a degree program, the student can, with the approval of the Graduate Program Adviser(s), count a maximum of 12 credits earned as a non-matriculated student toward the degree.
