Additional Categories of Visiting Students

Hunter College offers a wealth of courses in the liberal arts and social sciences to many categories of non-degree students.  Please note that courses in math and the sciences are typically not available to non-degree students as the seats in these courses are usually occupied by Hunter College’s continuing students.  However, should you find a space in a math or science course for which you qualify, you are more than welcome to register for it.
