Non-Degree Students

Students that wish to register for classes, but are not interested in earning a degree or in pursuing a certificate program must file an “Application for Non- Degree” Status with the Admissions and Recruitment Office.

For additional information relating to applying to Hostos Community College as a Non-Degree student, kindly visit the Admissions and Recruitment Office website at:
A student from outside the College may apply as a Non-Degree student for courses on a space-available basis. However, pre-requisites and co-requisites, if any, must be met for each course. Consequently, Non- Degree students must provide the College an Official Transcript detailing the completion of any applicable pre-requisites and co-requisites prior to enrolling into courses.

For additional information relating to non-Hostos transcript evaluation for meeting course pre- requisites kindly email:

Note: It is the Non-Degree student’s responsibility to check that any courses taken are acceptable at his or her home College.
