1. What is matriculated vs. nonmatriculated?
When you are a matriculated student you are officially accepted
into the Pace
You are considered nonmatriculated until Pace has received and
reviewed your high school transcripts or evidence of GED as
well as any college transcripts, you have completed a minimum
of 8 credits with Pace,
including English I* and Technical Math*, and have a minimum 2.0 grade point average. Since
the review of transcripts can take time, however, Pace does
allow nonmatriculated students to take up to 24
credits over the course of three semesters. After that, students
cannot continue until they are matriculated.
*Unless these writing or math courses transfer from another institution.
2. What if I take a course, and then am not
into the program?
Assuming you do not fail a number of courses, you will always
be allowed to continue in the program. If you choose to drop
out, you will be responsible for a certain amount of tuition
and fees. Please be sure to check the Tuition
Assistance policies of your company for details regarding whether or not
they will cover your tuition and fees should you fail a course
or opt to withdraw from a course or the program.
3. What is the G.I.F.?
Pace University assesses a General Institutional Fee (GIF) to cover the costs of libraries,
computer labs, technology infrastructures, and health care units, which are student services not
covered by tuition. Many institutions charge similar fees or they assess separate fees for technology,
health care facilities, and fitness centers. Pace University has consolidated the cost of these
services into one concise fee for the convenience of its student population.
4. Can I transfer credits I have from another
Yes, you can transfer credits for courses taken at other institutions in which you earned a C or better. In some cases, especially with core classes, it may be required that those credits were earned in the last 5 to 10 years. There is a maximum to the number of transfer or prior learning credits you can apply to the degree or certificate programs.
