Applications procedures differ depending on whether you want to take one or two classes as a non-degree seeking student or five classes or more as a certificate-seeking or degree student.
Complete the online non-degree application at least six weeks before the semester in which you want to enroll in a class. Fill in all the boxes, including the course prefix and number. List only the course(s) you want to take that semester. Generally one or two courses are all that a working student can handle.
Enter "Apply" at the bottom of the form. If you do not get a message that your application has been submitted, you should assume that there is a problem and re-submit. Note that you are required to declare your residency.
You will receive an email acceptance from the College once your application has been approved. This email will include your UF ID number. Please make note of this number. There will be instructions in this email on how to obtain a Gatorlink account. A Gatorlink account will grant you access to UF libraries, billing (in-state only) and course systems. You must use this email account for all correspondence with your instructors.
You will be registered for courses by the department. Once you have been successfully registered, you will be notified by email from the department. Remember, this email should come within two weeks of the start of the semester. If you are concerned about your status, contact the department's Academic Programs Assistant at (email@example.com) or phone at (352) 273-3912.
Prospective students should discuss their academic background with the Academic Program Assistant or their Certificate Coordinator, prior to application. Students can apply for admission to a certificate program at http://www.admissions.ufl.edu/start.html. Choose Certificate and “I am NOT a currently enrolled UF student” if you plan to take the certificate as a non-degree seeking student. Choose “I am a currently enrolled UF student” if you wish to add a certificate to your current online M.S. graduate program. Create a new user account and pay the application fee.
If you are applying to a graduate certificate program, arrange for an official copy of your bachelor’s transcript to be sent to the Office of Admissions at 201 Criser Hall, PO Box 114000, Gainesville, FL 32611-4000. You will not be able to register for a class until your official transcript has been received.
