Non-degree Admissions

  • Non-degree General Information

    Students may take up to 6 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 6 credit hours toward UF’s online graduate certificate in medical physiology. These credits will transfer if the student is admitted to the certificate program, and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.

    • Students pursuing the Graduate Certificate in Medical Physiology must take GMS6440: Fundamentals of Medical Physiology (1 credit) prior to other courses on a non-degree seeking basis.
    • Students pursuing the Graduate Certificate in Medical Physiology with a specialization in Cardiovascular/Renal Physiology must take GMS6400c: Principles of Medical Physiology (6 credits).

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