Nondegree Seeking

Some individuals may be interested in studying as a non-degree student, either as a visiting/transient student, a UF employee, or for their own learning experience to enhance personal and professional development. If you plan to apply to UF for a future term as a degree-seeking student please be aware that non-degree coursework cannot be counted towards UF degree requirements.

Effective with the Fall 2013 term, nondegree registration and application is handled by the UF Office of the University Registrar. Please direct all questions to them.

What is a nondegree status?

Some individuals may be interested in studying as a non-degree student, either as a visiting/transient student, a UF employee, or for their own learning experience to enhance personal and professional development. If you plan to apply to UF for a future term as a degree-seeking student please be aware that non-degree coursework cannot be counted towards UF degree requirements.

How do I apply for nondegree status?

The non-degree application can be completed online through the UF Office of the University Registrar.

Can I take any class as a non-degree student?

No. Some classes are restricted due to space limitations, particularly in the Fall and Spring semesters. Pre-Health pre-requisite science courses are generally not available to non-degree students.

Will I be able to use my coursework for credit towards a UF degree at a later date?

The same grading system is applicable to degree and non-degree students. Non-degree credit is not applicable to a UF degree except by subsequent admission to degree status and successful petition for application of such credit. Authorization to enroll as a non-degree student in no way implies future approval for admission as a degree-seeking student.
