Non-matriculated enrollment is for students who have not applied to Russell Sage College and wish to attend classes.

Non-matriculated students are bound by the prerequisite rules for course registration. If a course you’d like to take has a prerequisite requirement, you will receive a request for proof that you meet this requirement.

Departmental approval may be required for some courses.

Once registered, students will utilize the Russell Sage College email system, MySage, as their main form of communication with the college. Students will utilize SageAdvisor for registration, payment, and accessing their student record.

Good Luck, and thank you for choosing Sage!
