Non-Degree

  • Non-degree Information

    Another educational option is to take courses as a non-degree seeking student. Within the Medical Physiology program, students can take up to 4 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student. Within the Cardiovascular/Renal Physiology program, students can take up to 6 credit hours as a non-degree seeking student. The non-degree option is a way for students to learn about special topics while deciding whether to pursue the graduate certificate.

    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.

    *Note that because non-degree seeking students are not formally admitted to a degree seeking program at UF, their UF Cumulative GPA and Total Hours Earned will be listed as zero on their UF transcript.

    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.
