Policy Procedures

Credit Loads for Non-matriculated Students at the Undergraduate Level

Semester limits: Non-matriculated students are limited to a maximum of nine credits during the regular semesters. 

Overall limits: There is a larger restriction on non-matriculated students as well. The maximum number of credits you can accumulate as a non-matriculated student at SUNY Brockport is 24 credits. If you want to continue taking courses at that point, you must either matriculate as a degree candidate, or sign a statement assuring the University that you have no intention of pursuing a degree. The University doesn’t want to discourage students seeking self-improvement without benefit of baccalaureate, but it does want to ensure that degree-seekers have the proper advisement and other benefits that come with formal matriculation. Students should be aware that engaging in course work as a non-degree student does not imply nor guarantee admission as a matriculated student.
