PROGRAM DESCRIPTION


The Nondegree program is for students who have completed at least a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university in the United States and are not seeking a graduate degree. Students in this status may be interested in taking graduate courses at UCF for personal or professional enhancement, to prepare for possible admission to a graduate degree-seeking or certificate program, or to complete enrollment requirements at another university. Students who are enrolled in a graduate program at another university and want to take courses at UCF and transfer it to their home institution are considered transient students and nondegree-seeking at UCF.

Not all graduate degree programs at UCF allow students in Nondegree status to enroll in their courses. It is best to contact the program director for the graduate program that offers the course prior to applying.

Admission into Nondegree status does not guarantee admission to a graduate degree-seeking or certificate program at UCF. International students are not eligible for Nondegree status unless they hold an eligible visa. International students taking online courses from their home country are eligible to be nondegree seeking since they do not require a visa.

Please Note: In general, nondegree-seeking students are not eligible for financial aid, assistantships, or fellowships, although it is best to check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance for specific details. Nondegree-seeking students must be enrolled in 12 credit hours or more to be considered in full-time status.

Application Requirements

For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the Graduate Catalog. Applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.

In addition to completing the online application, Nondegree applicants will need to submit official, final transcripts from a regionally accredited institution showing a conferred bachelor's degree.

Nondegree seeking students will also be required to submit an Immunization Form prior to enrollment. Although this form is not used in the admission process, students will not be allowed to enroll at UCF without submitting the required Immunization Form.
