Why enroll as a non-degree seeking student?
If a student is interested in a particular subject or wants to explore online learning with UF before committing to a master’s degree, enrolling as a non-degree seeking student allows them to experience the program and gain valuable knowledge.
What are the admission requirements?
The following are the minimum requirements for non-degree seeking students.
- A bachelor’s degree in a science subject from an accredited institution
- An upper-division GPA of 2.0 or better
- English language skill requirements (international students only)
Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in a science subject—or who would like more information about admission requirements—should visit the Admissions page.
How many credits are available?
Non-degree seeking students may take up to 7 credits as a non-degree seeking student per semester. Only 7 credits may be transferred to a master’s degree, if the student is admitted. A new non-degree application is required for each new term. There is no application fee for non-degree seeking students.
To transfer up to 7 credits to the master’s degree in microbiology & cell science, students must earn a grade of “B” or higher in the course (B- or less will not transfer). Being a non-degree student does not guarantee acceptance into the master’s degree program.
How much will it cost?
Tuition is $535 per credit hour, plus fees. Some courses may require textbooks.
