About General Studies

The Office of General Studies and Summer Sessions admits and registers nondegree students for undergraduate credit classes.  Courses taken as a nondegree student may count toward graduation credits if you apply and are admitted into a degree program at UAlbany. 

Each year, many General Studies students apply for admission to degree programs and are accepted by the Undergraduate Admissions office.
