Enrollment Requirements and Registration



Enrollment status in the Pomeroy College of Nursing is defined as follows:



Matriculation is a student status indicating that all admission requirements have been met and the student has accepted an offer of admission to the program.



Non-matriculated students are not enrolled in the nursing program but are allowed to take courses at the Pomeroy College of Nursing on a space-available basis.


Full-time (FT)

Full-time is defined in both federal regulations and in New York State education law as being enrolled in a full-time academic workload that equals or exceeds 12 credit hours per semester.

Important Note About Full-time Study

Students who have transferred liberal arts courses or take them during summer sessions and students in and extended program may have difficulty maintaining full-time status in the nursing program.

Academic support courses are non-credit bearing and so do not count toward full-time status. The school offers a series of courses to provide academic support and encourage success in the intensive and highly compressed nursing curriculum. In the course descriptions for each of these non-credit courses, the requirements and time commitments have been equated to credit hours for the purpose of determining the total academic load for individual students. Students enrolled in these courses may have an academic load that is equivalent to full-time. Financial aid opportunities may be limited; consult the Financial Affairs Officer for more information.

Students should be prepared for a Monday through Friday lecture, lab and clinical schedule. Some nursing courses include Saturday/Sunday and/or evening clinical hours. Course schedules change as the student progresses in the program each semester. Due to varied clinical scheduling, the Nursing Program is unable to provide specific nursing course schedule information to students prior to enrollment in the Program.


Audit (AU)

Any student desiring to audit a nursing course must acquire prior approval by the Program Chair/Associate Dean before registering for the course. The request must be submitted before the semester/term begins in which the course being considered for audit is offered. Students may audit only the theory portion of a nursing course and will pay a pro-rated tuition fee. Audited classes are recorded with a grade of “AU”. No credit is awarded. A course taken on an audit basis will not be counted in determining full-time status for financial aid eligibility.


Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor prior to registration to ensure they are meeting progression and/or graduation requirements. It is the student’s responsibility to register for courses that fulfill graduation requirements.


Registration for nursing courses is completed online through SONIS. Students are notified via their College email regarding registration details. Students who do not register during designated registration times may forfeit their space in the next sequence of coursework. Students are required to submit proof of enrollment for all required courses being taken at other institutions while matriculated. Official transcript showing completed grades is required before the next semester/term starts.

Course Adjustment Days
Students must refer to the academic calendar for add/drop dates.
