Part-time Admissions

Part-time students may enroll in semester-long credit courses and carry from one to 11 credits per semester as degree or non-degree candidates. Degree candidates are matriculated students and may be eligible for financial aid. Non-degree candidates are non-matriculated and are not eligible for financial aid. Students who wish to enroll for 12 or more credit hours must be admitted as full-time students through the Office of Admissions.

Part-time students should be aware of other pertinent information contained in this catalog, especially sections describing the Wellness Center, Housing, Placement, Motorized Vehicles, Refund Policy, Late Registration Fee, Board (meal plan), Financial Aid, Transfer, Part-time Employment and Challenge Policy.

Applicants are required to submit:

  • A completed State University of New York application with a non-refundable application fee to the SUNY Application Services Center.
  • An official high school transcript or GED test scores and official transcripts from all colleges or universities attended to the Office of Admissions.

Applicants are encouraged to:

  • Submit official scores reports from the College Entrance Examination Board Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Testing (ACT) exam to the Office of Admissions.

Degree Candidates

To be eligible for admission to Cobleskill, a part-time degree candidate must graduate from a fully accredited and approved high school or qualify for a high school General Equivalency Diploma (GED). The Individualized Education Program (IEP) diploma is not the equivalent of a high school diploma.

Admissions staff will assist with application procedures.

Part-time degree students will follow the same scheduling procedures as full-time students. Scheduling for part-time students and for part-time degree students who are unable to schedule with full-time students will take place as announced by the Office of the Registrar.

The Admissions Committee will notify applicants by letter of their admissions decision on a rolling basis. Notification for fall applicants will begin on November 1.

Students will be required to complete a Wellness Center Health form prior to the beginning of their first semester.

Non-Degree Candidates

Non-degree students may be admitted to part-time study without a high school diploma. Non-degree students must, however, meet all course prerequisites and are limited to 11 credits.

To be eligible for admission as a non-degree student, a candidate must complete a SUNY Cobleskill Part-Time/Non-Degree application form. This form can be obtained from the Registrar or download the form.
