Students enrolled in a course(s) outside of an ABTU program, are considered “Non-Matriculated” students. students may also enroll in specifically selected courses, for the purpose of transferring to another educational institution.
Non-Matriculated students are subject to the same policies and requirements and procedures as matriculated or degree seeking students including Admissions, Attendance, and Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements.
