Student Categories

The college recognizes the following categories of students:

Matriculated (Degree Seeking)

Students who are officially enrolled in a program of study leading to a degree or academic certificate in specified areas (contact Admissions Office for listing). At the time of matriculation, students must take the County College of Morris (CCM) college placement examinations unless they are exempt from the examinations as determined by the Admissions Office.

Non-Matriculated (Non-Degree Seeking)

Students who are not seeking a degree or academic certificate from CCM. Non-matriculated students may enroll in credit courses for personal interest, career advancement, enrichment or possible transfer to another institution provided they satisfy all course prerequisites and other admission requirements.  Non-matriculated students are not eligible for financial aid.


Students who are enrolled in courses or programs of varying lengths for which no college credit is assigned. Non-credit students are exempt from the general admissions requirements of the college. These courses are administered by the Continuing Professional Education office at CCM.
