Non-Matriculated Status (GSP)
Any person holding a bachelor’s degree, its equivalent, or an advanced degree from an accredited institution of higher learning is eligible to be considered for admission to the University as a non-matriculated graduate student. Such students may enroll in graduate courses through the School for Professional Development (SPD) as non-degree students after submitting a completed application to SPD. Contact SPD for additional information at (631) 632-7050 or at http://www.stonybrook.edu/spd/graduate/nonmatric.html . Non-degree students who later wish to pursue a graduate degree will need to make a formal application for admission and may transfer a maximum of 12 credits taken in non-matriculated status to the graduate degree program or 6 to a graduate certificate program.
