Credit and Noncredit Courses

Owner: Enrollment Services

URL: and Noncredit Courses

Some credit-bearing courses are offered also on a noncredit basis, as indicated in the course description.

Students registering for noncredit offerings do not earn academic credit.

A student who registers for a course on a noncredit basis may not change enrollment to credit once the course begins.  A student who registers for a course for credit may not change enrollment to noncredit once the course begins.

No Teachers College fee is charged if the noncredit course registration is the only course registration for the term; however, any laboratory fees or special fees for the course are additional.

Fees for noncredit offerings such as non-credit courses, workshops, institutes, and conferences vary. See the official announcement for these offerings for the tuition and fees charges.

Teachers College reserves the right to cancel or modify the courses listed in this catalog and other official publications and to change the instructors.
