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. While graduate students meet the conditions of this definition, 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.

Listed below are the minimum required materials for post-baccalaureate students to submit to be evaluated for a decision. Additional documentation may be requested, and additional requirements may exist for students applying as degree-seeking 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.

Within curriculum, space, and fiscal limitations, 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 undergraduate courses and select graduate courses with permission from the department offering the courses. These courses are generally intended for personal interest and not taken in the pursuit of formalized educational goal. 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 working on undergraduate prerequisites necessary for admission into a graduate program. Students in this status are not eligible for financial aid. Additional information is available from The Graduate School.

Students interested in attending in a post-baccalaureate status may consult One-Stop Student Services for additional information. 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 may be obtained from The Graduate School.
