Applicants should submit their applications for non-matriculated study at least two weeks before the start of the semester.

To be considered for non-matriculated graduate study at Saint Rose an application procedure is required. In many cases, non-matriculated applicants must go through the same application process as matriculated applicants. Not all programs will allow a student to apply on a non-matriculated basis. Contact the Office of Graduate Admissions if you have any questions about this. Follow these steps to apply:

  • Official transcript(s) – Official transcript(s) from all colleges attended must be sent directly to the Graduate Admissions office.
  • Letters of Recommendation – While not all programs require letters of recommendation for non-matriculated study, they are strongly recommended for all applicants.

Recommenders can be invited to submit their recommendation letter through with our online application or they can submit a hardcopy letter along with a downloadable recommendation form.
