How To Register For a Summer Course
Types of Admissions and Procedures
There are two types of admissions to GSEAP:
- Formal admission - Formal admission is necessary to pursue a complete degree or certification program.
- Non-matriculated status
Under our Non-Matriculated Status option, qualified students may begin studies before completing the formal application process or gaining admission to a degree or certification program. This option provides a wonderful opportunity for qualified students to explore degree options and to confirm personal goals and readiness for graduate study. Qualifications to be considered include a Bachelor's degree (required) and other qualifications related to your preparedness for graduate-level studies in the field of interest to you.
The non-matriculated application process is simple and involves the following steps:
- Call the Dean's office at (203) 254-4250 to schedule an appointment or to be directed to the advisor for the program that interests you.
- Obtain a copy (official or unofficial) of your undergraduate transcript that shows the undergraduate degree you have earned. You will need to bring this transcript with you to the University to be reviewed.
- Complete the formal common admission application and pay the $60.00 application fee online.
- After you have met with the appropriate advisor and your non-matriculated status has been approved and processed by the Dean's office, you may register in person at the Registrar's Office (Kelley Administrative Center, ground floor).
- No recommendations are needed at this time. Recommendations and official transcripts are needed when you apply for full matriculation.
Non-matriculated status students may take a total of six credits in certification programs or nine credits in non-certification programs prior to formal matriculation. Courses will count toward degree or certification requirements with formal admission; however, successful completion of coursework does not automatically guarantee formal admission.
Maximum Credits Allowed Before Formal Admission
The total number of credits earned before formal admission to a program (i.e., the total number of transfer credits plus any credits earned as a non-matriculated student) may not exceed 6 (six) credits for applicants to certification programs or 9 (nine) credits for applicants to non-certification programs.
