Post-Baccalaureate Students

A post-baccalaureate student is someone who has earned a bachelor's degree at a regionally accredited institution of higher education and desires to complete additional college course work. UNF refers to post-baccalaureate students as those students not admitted to a graduate program. Specific information regarding graduate students and graduate programs may be found on The Graduate School website.

At minimum, students are required to submit the following application materials prior to the posted deadline for the term in which they would like to enroll.  Additional documentation may be requested, and additional requirements may exist for students applying as a degree seeking student to a limited access/selective admissions program. 

  • 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.)
  • Meet a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.0 (ā€œCā€) or higher.

The University of North Florida will accept applications for students pursuing post-baccalaureate admissions. In this capacity, post-baccalaureate students generally enroll in one of the following categories. 

  1. Post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking: In this status, post-baccalaureate students may register for select undergraduate level courses, but are not affiliated with a degree seeking program. These courses are generally intended for personal interest and not taken in the pursuit of formalized educational goals, or may serve as pre-requisites for consideration of admission to a graduate program. Students in this status are not eligible for financial aid. 

  2. Post-baccalaureate degree-seeking: In this status, post-baccalaureate students may register for courses leading to another bachelor's degree. Students in this status may apply for financial aid. 

  3. Post-baccalaureate certificate-only: In this status, post-baccalaureate students may register for classes leading to a specific certificate or other non-degree credential. Students in this status are not eligible for financial aid, except for those students pursuing their initial professional teacher certification in Florida.

  4. Post-baccalaureate for graduate prerequisites: This status is reserved for students who have earned a baccalaureate degree and who wish to take graduate level coursework but who are not admitted into a degree seeking graduate program. Permission from the Graduate Program Director in the appropriate area is required. Students in this status are not eligible for financial aid. Generally speaking and at the discretion of the graduate program, a maximum of ten graduate semester credit hours earned in a post-baccalaureate status may transfer into a graduate degree program.  Additional information is available from The Graduate School.
