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.
Please be aware that non-degree coursework will not show UF credit earned on the UF transcript. Therefore, when you complete the course and it is listed on your official transcript, Grade Points, Earned Hours, and Hours Carried will read zero. Those fields are only completed for UF degree seeking students.
