Non-Degree Student

Students may attend Queensborough Community College as non-degree students. The non-degree status differs from that of a matriculated student for the following reasons:

  • Although students receive college credit for coursework, they are not officially enrolled in a program of study leading to the Associate degree or certificate.
  • Non-degree students pay a slightly higher rate of tuition and are not eligible for financial aid.
  • Enrollment in certain "high-demand" lab science courses (Anatomy and Physiology, Micro-Biology for example) may be limited to Queensborough degree seeking students only.
