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 will be assessed for academic placement into English and Math courses. A variety of measues are used including review of high school transcript for recent high school graduates, standardized test scores, or placement tests administered by the College.  

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 Workforce Development office at CCM.
