You don’t have to be a student at SUNY Oneonta—or even seeking a college degree at all—to take classes on our campus. We welcome non-degree students of all ages, including:
- high school seniors getting a head-start on college courses;
- students enrolled at other colleges who want to take courses at Oneonta to transfer back to their home institution;
- students who are taking courses with the goal of eventually enrolling at Oneonta or another college; and
- community members seeking personal enrichment, but not intending to pursue a college degree.
You can take classes on campus during the fall and spring semesters. During the summer and winter sessions, a variety of classes are available online.
All non-degree students must apply for admission through the Office of Continuing Education by filling out either the fall/spring non-degree application or the winter/summer non-degree application. In order to be eligible to take courses as a non-degree student, you must:
- be at least a rising high school senior who has completed or is in the process of completing Regent's requirements.
- Have graduated high school or passed the GED/TASC; or
- have a cumulative average of a 2.0 from the last college attended.
If you have been dismissed from SUNY Oneonta, you are not eligible to take courses as a non-degree student.
