Non-Degree

  • Non-Degree Information

    Individuals who are interested in learning more about medical physiology and/or medical pharmacology but are not ready to commit to a graduate program can take courses as a non-degree seeking student.

    Within the medical physiology graduate certificate program, students can take up to 4 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student. Within the cardiovascular/renal physiology program and the master’s degree in medical physiology and pharmacology program, students can take up to 6 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student. Our non-degree option is a way for students to learn about specialized subjects in their field of interest while deciding whether to pursue the graduate certificate or master’s degree.

    • Up to 4 credit hours taken as a non-degree student can be transferred toward the Graduate Certificate in Medical Physiology, if admitted and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.
    • Up to 6 credit hours taken as a non-degree student can be transferred toward the Graduate Certificate in Medical Physiology with a specialization in Cardiovascular/Renal Physiology, if admitted and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.
    • Up to 6 credit hours taken as a non-degree student can be transferred toward the master’s degree in medical physiology and pharmacology, if admitted and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.

    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.
