General Information

Lehman College accepts both entering freshmen and transfer students. The admission categories fall into two classifications: degree students (matriculants) and non-degree students (non-matriculants). A matriculant is a student who is admitted to a program leading to a degree. Undergraduate matriculants at Lehman, either full-time or part-time, may attend classes during any hours in which the College is in session. A non-degree student may enroll in credit-bearing courses on a space-available basis, but is not officially registered in a degree program and is not a candidate for a degree. Credits earned by such students may later be transferred to a degree program. Freshmen and transfer students who were educated outside the United States must file their applications through the University Application Processing Center (UAPC) year-round. Lehman College does not process late applications with foreign credentials.
