Registering as a Non-matriculated Student
Non-matriculated students are individuals who wish to take an individual graduate course or Professional Development Institute for professional growth, to prepare academically for graduate studies, or for personal enrichment. Students may elect to take a course for graduate credit or audit, but it is assumed that they are not currently enrolled in a Wheelock graduate degree program at this time.
At Wheelock College, you may enroll in up to 6 credits of graduate course work as a non-matriculated student before formally being admitted to a degree program or being approved for Life-Long-Learner status (for more information please contact the Office of Graduate Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Satisfactory performance as a non-matriculated student may enhance your application for admission to one of our programs, but it does not guarantee it. Courses successfully taken by students may later be counted towards the degree, if admitted, with approval of the appropriate academic Dean. We strongly recommend that students who anticipate applying courses toward a future degree program speak with a Program Director prior to registering.
Professional Development Opportunities
Many professionals may also choose to use our graduate courses for Professional Development Points (PDP) or Continuing Education Units (CEU) as issued by the state or the student's governing professional organization. To find out how many PDP or CEU points you will earn by getting a grade or auditing a course please consult the bylaws of your professional organization.
It is expected that students who wish to obtain graduate credit for participation in a graduate level course at Wheelock have obtained a bachelor's degree. Students who have not obtained a bachelor's degree may participate in our graduate course offerings by electing to audit a course.
