Non-degree Admissions

Non-Degree Seeking General Information

As a non-degree seeking student, students can experience graduate-level classes while deciding to pursue a graduate degree or just broaden their knowledge base in pharmaceutical chemistry and enhance their professional development.

If a student registers for three credits during a particular term as a non-degree seeking student and wishes to attend another term for an additional three credits, the student must submit a new application. The non-degree seeking application only pertains to the term in which it is submitted.

For non-degree seeking students, grades will be given and held on a transcript, but will not be counted toward the master’s degree or graduate certificate until full admission to the program is granted. Once admitted, students may transfer up to six credits earned as a non-degree seeking student, if they earned a “B” grade or higher in each course.

Enrollment in a course as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee acceptance into the program. Students need to meet the minimum application requirements for the program they wish to enter.

Please click on the 'Requirements' tab above to review the non-degree minimum requirements before applying.

Please be aware that non-degree coursework will not show UF credit earned on the UF transcript. Therefore, when you complete the course and it is listed on your official transcript, Grade Points, Earned Hours, and Hours Carried will read zero. Those fields are only completed for UF degree seeking students.
