Visiting Students

Fall 2024 Applications are Now Open

A visiting, or non-matriculated student, is someone who has not been admitted into a degree program at FSC but is taking one or more courses at the College.

You should consider becoming a non-matriculated student if you want to:

  • Earn college credits to transfer back to your home institution.
  • Take courses required for admission into a specific program.
  • Boost your GPA to become qualified for admission to FSC.
  • Earn a microcredential

These are just some of the reasons why students attend FSC as visiting, non-matriculated students.

A Non-Matriculated Student Guide is available. If you have any questions about the non-matriculated application process, please feel free to email us.
