Students in this category have already earned a bachelor’s degree at a regionally accredited institution and desire to complete additional college coursework. UNF refers to post-baccalaureate students as those not admitted to a graduate program. At minimum, students are required to submit the following application materials prior to the posted general admission deadline for the term in which they would like to enroll.

  • Admission application (see details below for which application to submit)
  • $30 application fee
  • Official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended, including military and dual enrollment transcripts
  • Official transcripts from any credit-earning mechanism (Credit-earning mechanisms include, but are not limited to IB, AP, AICE, CLEP, or DANTES.)
All transcripts must be official, arriving to the Office of Admissions directly from the originating school or testing agency. Unofficial documents will not be accepted.

Students will apply as one of four categories. Applications for these student types are considered on a space available basis.

Application Fee

A $30 non-refundable application fee is required for any application for admission. Acceptable payment methods include Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express at the time the online application is submitted or personal check/money order made payable to UNF.

In this status, post-baccalaureate students may register for classes leading to a specific certificate or other non-degree credential.

A list of graduate certificate programs and additional requirements can be viewed on the Graduate School Web site.

This status is reserved for students who have an earned baccalaureate degree and who wish to take graduate level coursework but who are not admitted into a degree seeking graduate program.
