Matriculated students - students enrolled in a degree program - register for courses to fulfill requirements in their selected majors. Matriculated students are assigned an academic adviser in their major, and work with the advisor to develop a program of study.
Non-matriculated students - students enrolled in a non-degree program - register for courses for personal enrichment or exploration of majors. Non-matriculated students may take any undergraduate courses, as long as they have completed the prerequisites.
