2019-2020 Undergraduate Bulletin

Non-Degree Students

Non-degree (visiting) students are accepted on a semester-to-semester basis, based on space availability. All non-degree (visiting) students must apply each semester through the Office of Admissions by the established application deadline. Non-degree (visiting) students must provide verification of high school graduation or a General Equivalency Diploma (GED), as well as transcripts from all colleges previously attended. Non-degree (visiting) students must meet the academic achievement standards established for matriculated students. All non-degree (visiting) students must comply with the New York State Public Health Laws which require that all college students, born on or after January 1, 1957, must provide proof of immunization prior to registering for classes.  The Immunization Form must be completed and sent to the Health Office prior to being allowed to enroll. If you have questions about this requirement, please contact the Health Office at 212.237.8052, or by email at healthoffice@jjay.cuny.edu.

The Non-Degree (Visiting) Student Application is available online at http://www.jjay.cuny.edu/apply-non-john-jay-degree-student. The completed Application, accompanied by the application fee of $65 and all required documentation, must be submitted to the Office of Admissions by the deadline indicated on the form.

Non-Degree (visiting) students are limited to taking a total of twelve (12) credits at John Jay College unless they are part of a registered certificate program or the Addiction Studies Program.  Non-degree (visiting) students who wish to continue their studies at John Jay College after completing 12 credits, must formally apply for admission to the College.   

With the exception of other CUNY students attending John Jay College on e-Permit, all other Non-Degree (visiting) students will be assigned registration appointment dates and times that occur after regular student appointment times and dates and will pay a higher rate of tuition than regular John Jay College matriculated students. Financial aid is not available to non-degree (visiting) students. Once a non-degree (visiting) student application has been processed, the student will receive notification about registering for courses. Registration is on a space-available basis and there is no guarantee the student will be able to register for the courses of their choosing as course priority is given to John Jay College matriculated students. Registration for non-degree (visiting) students will begin approximately one (1) month prior to the start of each semester/session.
