Terms and Conditions for Non-Degree Undergraduates

Students must submit an admission application, available on the web site: or in the Continuing Education Office, Netzer Administration Building, Room 135. Applications must be accompanied by:

  • HSED or GED completion certificate, or
  • high school transcript showing award of diploma, or
  • transcripts from all post secondary institutions attended
  • generally a grade point average of 2.0 or higher is required for admission as a non-degree student.

Admission as a non-degree undergraduate student does not guarantee future admission to a degree program, nor does it guarantee availability of courses at the time of registration. Non-degree students register for classes after degree seeking students have registered. Non-degree undergraduates may register for up to 13 s.h. per semester and 6 s.h. each summer session.

Pre-matriculated non-degree undergraduates may not earn more than 24 s.h. prior to admission as degree-seeking students. In addition, they are required to maintain a 2.0 grade point average to be eligible to continue enrollment. All new pre-matriculated non-degree students are required to make an individual advisement appointment prior to registration. Continuing pre-matriculated non-degree undergraduates are strongly encouraged to meet with the advisor each semester.

Life long learners and visiting students who do not maintain a 2.0 grade point average may be precluded from further enrollment.

Visiting students who wish to transfer credit earned at Oneonta, must submit a signed transcript request form to the Oneonta Registrar’s Office in order to have an official transcript mailed to their home institution.
