Non-Matriculated Registration

This is for students not enrolled in a degree or certificate program. No financial aid is available for non-matriculated students. 


If you are currently registered for the Spring 2019 semester as a non-matriculated student, you will receive a letter in the mail before the Registration Start Date for Non-Matriculated students (listed below under step 3) with more information related to registration for the next semester.



To register for classes as a non-matriculated student, please follow the steps outlined below

1. Fill out the online Application for Non-Matriculated Students

  • Log In Instructions: In order to complete this electronic form, you must first create an account with Next Gen (if you haven't already) by clicking on "Create New Account" on the log in page.
  • Students under 18 years old will require parent or guardian permission.  If you answer NO to the question “Are you over 18 years old?”, you will be required to enter the name and email of your parent or guardian.  Your parent or guardian will receive an email with a link to electronically sign the form.  Once your parent or guardian has electronically signed the form, your application will be processed by the Registration & Records Office.
  • Please note: If you wish to take a course that has a prerequisite not taken at NCCC, you will need to provide an unofficial transcript to the Registration & Records Office.  You may upload a copy of your unofficial transcript or grade mailer on the Application for Non-Matriculated Students proving successful completion of the prerequisite course.  Instructions for looking up course prerequisites can be found in the College catalog.
