Senior Citizens who wish to audit classes as non-matriculated student on a tuition-free, space-available basis please complete the Non-Degree Application.
Students not currently enrolled at other CUNY schools must apply for non-degree status using our Non-Degree Application. Applications are processed as they are received.
All students applying for non-degree status must demonstrate college readiness* prior to class registration. The following documentation can be submitted to assess proficiency.
- NYS Regents.

Persons born before January 1, 1957 must provide proof of rubella immunization. Persons born on or after January 1, 1957 are required to present proof of immunity against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR). Submit forms to the Office of Health Services prior to registration.
