Registration & Records


Non-Matriculated Registration

An individual may take courses at the college as a non-matriculated student who is not seeking a certificate or degree from SUNY Niagara.  Students may also enter on a non-matriculated basis if they are not prepared to matriculate.  Non-matriculated students are not required to have graduated from high school or possess a high school equivalency diploma.  Non-matriculated students are not eligible for financial aid.  Contact the Enrollment Center to enroll or review the website information.

Course prerequisites must be met.  If a prerequisite course was taken at another institution, an unofficial transcript or grade mailer proving successful completion will be a sufficient waiver.

A student who is under age 17 by the start of the registered term at SUNY Niagara must be enrolled at a high school or registered in a home schooled program.  If the student is not age 17 by the start of classes, the non-matriculated application must be approved by a parent and/or legal guardian.  If the student withdrew from their high school district, a letter from the superintendent of the district in which the student resides is required to confirm home schooled enrollment.

A minor student’s enrollment in any college course constitutes an agreement by that student to complete all class assignments without special consideration being given because of age.


If you are currently registered for the Spring 2024 semester as a non-matriculated student, you will receive information prior to the Registration Start Date for Non-Matriculated students about registering for the Summer & Fall 2024 semesters.
