For those students not yet ready to commit to a graduate program, UF offers the option of taking courses as a non-degree seeking student. Within the Medical Pharmacology and Therapeutics program, students can take up to 3 credit hours in non-degree status. Our non-degree option is a convenient way for students to strengthen their knowledge in specialized topics while deciding whether to pursue the graduate certificate.
Up to 3 credit hours taken as a non-degree student can be transferred toward the Graduate Certificate in Medical Pharmacology and Therapeutics, if admitted and if a grade of “B” or higher is earned.
