At Relay, applicants who do not meet Relay’s undergraduate GPA minimum of 2.75 are not eligible to be a matriculated student at Relay. They may instead be eligible for non-matriculated (i.e., non-matric) status.
When you are non-matric, there are significant academic, financial, and certification implications. Most notably, you are not working toward a degree, not eligible for certification, not eligible for federal financial aid, and not eligible for previous loan deferment until you exit non-matriculated status.
Before you can matriculate from non-matriculated, you must:
- submit proof to Relay of completing all certification requirements (e.g., pass exams and
workshops) if you are joining a Relay program leading to certification; and
- end the fall or spring term in good academic standing.
Given those implications, you should very carefully consider whether or not the non-matric option is right for you. It is strongly recommended that applicants consult the schools where they will be teaching and/or their sponsoring organization about this decision.
