Catalog and Student Handbook 2020 - 2021

Admission of Non-Matriculating Students

Students may request to enroll in Arts and Sciences courses at Labouré College as a non-matriculating [or non-degree seeking] student. A student may want to take a course for personal and self-enriching reasons, to satisfy a prerequisite course needed for a program they are enrolled in at another institution or a program they intend to enroll in, or for continuing education and professional reasons. Classes are based on a seat availability basis determined by the Registrar. 

Students who meet the Labouré College admissions requirements may enroll in courses to meet educational goals other than attaining a degree, certificate, or certification. Students who wish to take courses for self-enrichment must provide appropriate educational verification. 

Non-matriculating (non-degree, non-certificate, non-certification) students are those who are taking courses to achieve special professional goals or personal enrichment. A student can be defined as: 

  1.  A student who does not have a degree and is seeking self-enrichment
  2.  A student who is enrolled in another institution and is taking courses with the purpose of transferring credits back to their home institution
  3.  A student who has a degree and is enrolling with the purpose of taking courses as prerequisites for another degree, certificate, or certification

Students may take a maximum of four courses as a non-matriculated student. Students must declare an intention to matriculate into a degree, certificate, or certification program once four courses have been completed. An application for matriculation must be filed with the Department of Admissions at that time. If accepted as a matriculating student, credits earned as a non-matriculating student will be evaluated toward the degree, certificate, or certification program. Students should be aware that credits taken prior to matriculation may not be applicable to current program requirements. 

Application Requirements for Non-Matriculating Students

    • A student with some previous college experience must submit an official transcript from each college attended, or an educational verification form completed by the last college attended
    • A student with an associate, bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree must submit an official transcript or copy of the degree, or an educational verification form completed by the college at which the highest level of education was attained

  • Submit the non-refundable enrollment deposit in order to register for the chosen courses
    • If the selected course(s) has prerequisites, the student must submit an official college transcript(s) to demonstrate completion of the prerequisites
