Non-Degree Students

Non-matriculated students are individuals wishing to take courses at Bank Street without being enrolled in an advanced certificate or degree program. Interested students must have an earned bachelor’s degree in order to enroll as a non-matriculated student. Non-matriculated registration begins two weeks prior to the start of each semester and classes are subject to availability and eligibility for non-matriculated registration.

Completing this form starts the process and does not equal registration.

  • Meet with an Advisor

    Once the form is submitted, a Student Services Advisor (SSA) will contact you regarding next steps in the registration process. If you are interested in speaking with one of our faculty advisors, we will assist you in doing so. Meeting with an advisor is not required, however, if you do plan on enrolling in a program in the future, an advisor can assist you in selecting courses that will apply to a degree or certification program.

  • Registration Process

    After you have selected your course(s), the Student Services Advisor will complete the registration form and send it to you for review and signature. Once you have submitted the signed form, the SSA will register you for the course(s). Non-matriculation registration begins two weeks prior to the start of each semester.

    Please note: if you have a hold on your account from a prior registration, the SSA will reach out to you with resources on how to remove the hold and move forward with your registration.
