What is the benefit of enrolling as a non-degree seeking student?
This is a chance for students to enhance their skills in specific areas while determining which degree path is right for them.
You may take up to four (4) credits as a non-degree seeking student prior to being admitted as either a graduate certificate or master’s student. A new non-degree application is required for each term you wish to take courses as a non-degree seeking student.
Up to four (4) credits can be transferred toward the graduate certificate or master’s degree in personalized medicine later on, provided you earn a B or better. Being a non-degree student does not guarantee acceptance into the graduate certificate or master’s degree programs.
Enrollment in a course as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Students need to meet the entrance requirements for the program they wish to enter.
All courses taken as a non-degree seeking student are credit-bearing. Your official transcript will list coursework, course number, course title and grade received. The earned hours, hours carried and GPA will read as zero on your official transcript as those fields are only completed for UF degree seeking students. If you are planning on transferring UF non-degree coursework to another institution for credit, it’s advised that you first verify with the other institution that the credit will be accepted.
