We do our best to recognize prior learning to shorten your program and to be open to unconventional academic or career backgrounds. In order to increase the diversity of skills and experience in the classroom, we also welcome students to take one or two courses without matriculating. Those courses will then count towards a degree if you decide to go forward.


Students may take individual courses as non-matriculated students on a space availability basis.  Non-matriculated students must provide transcripts and appropriate documents reflecting their qualifications for post-graduate study. Additionally, individuals may take a maximum of 8 credits in non-matriculated study.

GCNYC also offers a range of tailor-made programs for executives and teams seeking specialized high-level professional development.
