Yes.  It is not necessary that students be accepted as fully-matriculating students when they first arrive. Students have the option to apply and be accepted and start (part-time) as a fully-matriculated student, but they also have the option of taking courses as a continuing education/non-matriculated student. This option is available to anyone. Non-matriculated courses are real classes, with real grades, and real credits on a real transcript. This allows students the opportunity to build credits that they can then use to transfer into the same school at a later date, or out to another institution.
