  1. Explore our Schedule of Classes and select the course(s) you want to register for.
  2. If you are a visiting student enrolled in another institution, consult with your Home College advisor to ensure that credits earned at CUNY SLU will be transferrable to your degree program.
  3. Undergraduate Students complete Undergraduate Non-Degree Application.  There is a $65 nonrefundable application fee, payable to CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies.  If you never attended college, include your high school transcript indicating your date of graduation.
  4. Graduate Students complete the Graduate Non-Degree Application; There is a $75 nonrefundable application fee, payable to CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies.  Include your most recent college transcript (unofficial transcript is acceptable) or proof of bachelor’s degree.

Once your application is processed, you will receive confirmation of your course registration. Please review the academic calendar, tuition and fee rates, and payment deadlines.  Although non-degree students are not eligible for financial aid, the payment plan makes college more affordable by allowing you to better manage your payments.

Auditing Courses

Students who do not wish to take a course for credit may audit the course by selecting the audit option. Fees remain the same as credit courses, however, students who audit will not be evaluated or receive a transcript.

An exception to the payment of tuition for auditing courses is made for senior citizens. If you are over the age of 60, you may enroll in undergraduate courses only, on an audit basis, without tuition charges and without credit, on a space available basis. Registration will take place on the first day of classes. These senior citizens pay an Administrative Fee plus the Consolidated Services Fee and any other fee charges related to the course. The grade of “AUD” will be assigned. The same principles relating to change of status indicated in the preceding paragraph also applies to senior citizens auditing courses. The application process is the same as the above.
