Non-Matriculated Students

Academic Calendar | Course Descriptions | Registration | Add/Drop Course | Forms | UR Faculty & Staff | Trainee Handbook

You may register part-time for classes at the University of Rochester without applying to a certificate or degree program. This is considered a non-matriculated status. You may take any course for which you have met the pre-requisites or requirements of the course. See the current tuition and fee schedule for tuition costs.

If you choose to apply for admission to a certificate or degree program, these courses are included on your official transcript and may be considered for a future program of study:

  • Certificate programs – up to 3 credit hours
  • Master’s or PhD degree programs – up to 10 credit hours (or 3 courses)

We welcome you to the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. If you have questions or need additional assistance with your course registration, please contact us at (585) 275-4522.

Course Descriptions/Course Schedules

To view course descriptions and course schedules for the upcoming semester, please visit our online system.


Open registration periods for non-matriculated students are listed in the academic calendar.

Registration will be accepted after the registration close date with pre-payment of a $150 late registration fee to the School of Medicine and Dentistry Bursar's Office. Proof of late fee payment must be submitted with your registration forms.

Students wishing to enroll as a non-matriculated student should complete and print a registration form and submit it to the Registrar for Graduate Programs, Box 316. The form may also be dropped off in person to Medical Center room G-9556. Students will also need to complete the financial statement.

Once you have registered for courses, you will use the Blackboard system to check the status of your registration request, check your schedule, pay your tuition bill and see your final grades.

If you do not have a University of Rochester email account, please contact University IT

Adding/Dropping Courses after you have Registered

If you change your mind and no longer wish to take the course(s) in which you are enrolled, you must submit an add/drop form. Courses dropped prior to the start of the semester will result in no tuition charges. However, if you remain enrolled after the start of the semester, your refund for the course will be based on the date you submit the add/drop form to the Registrar's Office. Please note that you may be financially responsible for all or part of the tuition based upon the date you drop or withdraw from the course.
