The online admissions application will require you to choose from one of the following application types:

  • Matriculated Students/Degree – Choose this if you plan to study on a part-time or full-time basis, earn a degree or certificate and are interested in applying for financial aid.
  • Non-Matriculated/Non-Degree – choose this if you are interested in taking a few courses on a part-time basis without earning a degree or certificate. Non-matriculated students are not eligible for federal and state financial aid.
  • International Student – Choose this if you are applying as an international student seeking to enroll in a degree program on an F-1 Visa. Click here for more information for international student admissions.

    *If you are an international student looking to enroll and complete your degree entirely online, then you should complete the Matriculated Students/Degree Application.

    **A Visa Holder Other Than F1 - You cannot travel with a B1/B2 visa to study in the U.S. According to the regulations, enrolling in classes while in B-1/B-2 status will result in a status violation. If you are already in the U.S. with a different visa other than an F1 visa and would like to study at Herkimer College, you must call 315-574-4005 to make an appointment so that you can speak an advisor to determine your eligibility to study.
