Non-Degree Admissions

Non-Degree General Information

Students may take up to 3 credit hours on a non-degree seeking basis. Courses are taken on their own and are not part of a larger program. However, students can transfer up to 3 credit hours toward UF’s online graduate certificate in wildlife forensic sciences and conservation. These credits will transfer if the student is admitted to the certificate program, and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.

There is no application fee for non-degree seeking students. Enrollment as a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee admission to the program.

Non-Degree Minimum Requirements

In order to apply for non-degree seeking courses, students must have:

  • A bachelor's degree in a natural science subject OR A DVM degree. If your bachelor's degree is not in a natural science subject, please email Dr. Jason Byrd at
  • An upper-division GPA of 2.0 (C grade) or better

If a student has a bachelor's degree that is not in a natural science subject, they may still be eligible for the online wildlife forensic sciences and conservation graduate program based on work or undergraduate science experience.


  • A maximum of 3 credits can be taken as a non-degree seeking student.
  • A student who is already admitted to the University of Florida needs to contact us before an application is submitted.
