As a state-funded institution of higher education, the University of North Florida requires graduate students to have a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university, a minimum score of 150 for both the quantitative and verbal sections of the Graduate Record Exam (general test), and a minimum of a 3.0 grade point average for the final 60 hours of the undergraduate degree. Applicants that do not have an undergraduate degree in biology can still apply to the graduate program in biology but will need to have a minimum of 12 credit hours of upper level undergraduate biology courses.
Admission to the program is offered to eligible students for the fall semester. Those students without the necessary prerequisite coursework may enroll as a non-degree seeking post-baccalaureate student to complete the foundation courses.
Students who wish to enroll as a non-degree seeking post-baccalaureate student may apply for any semester. The program coordinator may allow non-degree seeking post-baccalaureate students to enroll in select graduate courses on a case-by-case basis, but permission to take graduate level courses does not guarantee admission to the program, nor does it guarantee inclusion of those courses into an official program of study.
