Enrolling as a Non-Degree Seeking Student

If a student is interested in a subject or is not ready to commit to a graduate certificate program, enrolling as a non-degree seeking student allows them to experience UF’s online courses in wildlife forensic sciences and conservation.

How many credits are available?

Once enrolled, students may take up to 3 credits as a non-degree seeking student prior to being admitted as a certificate student. A new non-degree application is required for each term you wish to take courses as a non-degree seeking student.

Up to 3 credits can be transferred toward the graduate certificate in wildlife forensic sciences and conservation later on, provided you earn a B or better (B- or less will not transfer). Being a non-degree seeking student does not guarantee acceptance into the graduate certificate program.
