Students returning to academia or attending graduate school for the first time who are uncertain of their program may take up to 9 credits without applying for admission to the Sage Graduate Schools. To enroll for additional credits, students must either apply for admission (matriculate) and gain acceptance to a graduate certificate or degree program before completing 9 credit hours or indicate visiting-student status.
A students who begins coursework as non-matriculated student and who wishes to pursue a degree is required to apply for admission and gain acceptance to a graduate program before completing 9 credit hours of graduate coursework. For admission, apply online.
In order to maintain matriculated status, a student must satisfactorily complete at least one course each year (September – August) with an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.
Students who do not matriculate before completing 9 credit hours and who do not intend to earn a certificate or degree from Sage should request visiting student status. Credits accumulated as a visiting student do not necessarily count toward a certificate or degree program.
