Non-Traditional & Visiting Students
We welcome students from other colleges or universities as well as those who have taken time off from formal education to work or pursue other vocational or personal goals.
A non-traditional student…
Is one who is of non-traditional age or background. If you have completed four transferable courses or are pursuing a second undergraduate degree, you can apply as a transfer student. (Second-degree candidates are not eligible for college scholarship funds). Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
A visiting student…
Is a degree candidate at another institution who enrolls at Bates for a semester or a year. Candidates should follow transfer application guidelines and indicate a preference for a semester or a full year. Visiting students have all the same rights and privileges as other Bates students with two exceptions: they aren’t eligible for Bates scholarship assistance and they can’t participate in NCAA-sanctioned athletic competition. If you’re interested, contact the Dean of Students.
