Non-degree applicants want to take college classes without pursuing a degree. The coursework will not lead to an associate degree or certificate, but you will still earn college credits.
Kingsborough accepts non-degree applications year-round. Application deadlines are based on enrollment and class availability. Please contact the One-Stop Center at 718-368-6700 if you need more information.
NOTE: Non-degree students pay a higher per-credit rate and are not eligible for financial aid or the flat full-time tuition rate.
We are currently accepting non-degree applications for 2023.
