The University of Rochester part-time studies program provides adults from the greater Rochester area the opportunity to take classes on a part-time basis for intellectual enrichment or professional development.
Part-time non-matriculated (non-degree) students have an opportunity to try out various programs of study or just enjoy a class for personal enrichment.

Applicants should know that no more than six courses taken when non-matriculated may be transferred to a degree program.
