All non-degree students may take a maximum of 28 credits of undergraduate coursework before applying for admission to Ramapo College. Non-degree students are considered “Part Time” and may only take a maximum of 11 credits per semester. A $25.00 non-refundable application fee will automatically be billed to all non-degree students upon registration.

To qualify for in-state tuition, first-time registrants must provide proof of ONE FULL YEAR of residency in New Jersey. Failure to provide proof will result in out-of-state charges. The following constitutes proof of residency:

  • Valid NJ DRIVER’S LICENSE (over 1 year)
  • Valid NJ VOTER REGISTRATION CARD (over 1 year)

*If neither form of ID can be produced, two documents that reflect permanent domicile in the state of New Jersey for one year prior to enrollment will be considered.

Non-degree students enroll for many reasons and are an important part of the Ramapo College community. The College understands the unique situations of each student and works hard to meet their individual needs. It is important to know that the non-degree program is on a “seats available” basis.  Classes that are closed or have prerequisites restrictions may not be available at the time of registration. Please review the admission requirements below to determine which category fits your non-degree status.
