On-Campus Non-Matriculating Courses
Non-matriculating students (students not in a degree Program) seeking professional growth, licensing compliance, credit transfer, career advancement or to explore William James College are welcome to apply, providing they have met the prerequisites at the appropriate academic level. Courses are available if space permits. Enrollment in specific courses may require prior Academic preparation and or professional experience. Therefore, if you are considering a course for transfer of credit to an institution other than William James College, be sure and check ahead of time with that institution to insure that you will be able to receive credit for the course. Please contact the Registrar’s Office if you require additional assistance during the application process.

Application and Registration
Application and Registration is just one form: Non-Matric Application Form. Non-matriculation registration does not begin until after formal new and continuing student registration has been completed. A non-matriculated student maybe bumped from a course if a seat is needed for a matriculated student. The final approval for a non-matriculated student registration into a course is the decision of the academic chair/director whom will be contacted by the Registrar's Office after a non-matriculated application/registration form has been received.
Refer to the Academic Calendar for class start dates and school closing information.

Non-matriculating students who take courses for academic credit must meet all course requirements and will be evaluated on the same basis as matriculating students.
If you are considering applying for admission to a program at William James College, please be aware that, while satisfactory performance as a non-matriculated student is a prerequisite to admission, it does not guarantee admission to a program. Students who plan to apply should note that applicants are allowed to have previously enrolled in no more than 4 courses while a non-matriculating student. Courses successfully taken by non-matriculating students may later be counted toward William James College program requirements, as transfer credit, provided that they are taken within the relevant time frame.
Additional questions may be referred to either the Admissions (617-564-9376) or Registrar's Office (617-327-6777 x1525).
