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.
