1. What does it mean to be a non-degree student?
The non-degree option is available to students who wish to take a few courses before being formally admitted to a certificate or degree-seeking program. The courses are for college credit and will be listed on your official UF transcript.
2. Why do I need to register as a non-degree student instead of starting the certificate program in fall 2018?
Due to the newness of the program and the timing of the application deadline for fall 2018, we are unable to officially admit students to the certificate program for the fall 2018 term.
3. Will my enrollment automatically transfer into the certificate program in the spring, when it officially starts?
Provided you meet our certificate admissions criteria, submit your complete application by the deadline, and complete the three foundation courses with a grade of B or higher, you will be admitted to the certificate program in the spring semester (January 2019) and the three foundation courses will be applied towards your certificate requirements.
4. Is there any advantage to taking these courses this fall as a non-degree seeking student as opposed to waiting until the Spring?
Yes! For the fall term, non-degree seeking students will pay only $425 per credit hour in tuition. The tuition is increasing effective Spring 2019.
