Time to Degree
All requirements for the degree must be completed no later than four years after matriculation.
Please consult the Graduate Center Bulletin for the official transfer policy and please see our FAQ for additional questions.
The Graduate Center allows non-enrolled students (non-matriculated students) to take a total of two courses at the Graduate Center. Please contact the Registrar’s Office first to complete the necessary paperwork and check deadlines to apply. If you are later admitted to the MALS Program, the courses you have taken as a non-matriculated student will count towards the 30 credits that you need for the degree.
