Non-Degree Seeking Students
Thank you for your interest in non-degree study at the University of North Florida. Non-degree courses can be taken for enrichment, certification or to meet pre-acceptance requirements for entry into a graduate degree program. The Office of Admissions processes all non-degree applications. Here are the items you will need to submit in order to take courses in a non-degree seeking status:
- Completed application for admission.
- Submit the $30 non-refundable application fee.
- All students, regardless of age, must complete the medical compliance immunization form. All students born after 1956 must also present documented proof of immunity to measles (Rubeola) and Rubella (German measles) to the Student Health Services Office.
- Documentation of residency status will be needed for Florida resident tuition rates. Residency FAQs

The transfer of any course(s) to a degree program earned while in a non-degree seeking/special status must be recommended by the dean or designee of the college which administers the program.
- First-time-in-college freshmen are prohibited from enrolling as non-degree seeking/special students.
