UF offers many certificate programs that enable students to learn advanced skills in a specialized course of study. Certificate programs have fewer courses and requirements than a degree program. Applicants may learn more about certificate admission requirements on the departmental website.
In the certificate application process, the Office of Admissions must complete the following review before your application is referred to your department:
The Office of Admissions cannot forward an application to a certificate program to the department until all materials and transcript(s) have been received.

Readmission applies only to students who have previously been enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, post-baccalaureate or professional UF program. Former students who do not enroll at the university for two consecutive terms, including any summer term, must apply for readmission at the same level of their previous enrollment. Students who skip a single term will be scheduled automatically for a registration appointment for one additional term.Learn More
Post-baccalaureate study is for students who have already received a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution. Students interested in post-baccalaureate study typically take undergraduate courses in order to fulfill requirements for professional school, teacher certification, prerequisites for graduate study, or licensure/certification. Because UF has limited space available for post-baccalaureate studies, applicants should communicate intentions with their proposed department before applying.
Post-baccalaureate admission differs from standard graduate admissions. In the post-baccalaureate application process, the Office of Admissions must complete the following review before your application is referred to your department:
The Office of Admissions cannot forward an application to a certificate program to the department until all materials and transcript(s) have been received. After referral, the department will mail admission notifications directly to applicants.

If you have already attended UF but not enrolled for two or more consecutive terms, which includes summer sessions, you must apply for readmission.
Undergraduate students in good standing at another accredited collegiate institution can enroll full time at UF as non-degree transient students to complete work to transfer back to the parent institution. The university has no available space for transient students during the fall and spring semesters; transient students should plan to take courses at UF during the summer terms only (A, B or C).
UF will not evaluate work previously completed, and it is the student's responsibility to secure approvals required by the parent institution. Certification to Social Security and Veterans Administration programs also is the responsibility of the student, who must request each institution to furnish records.
Non-degree students are subject to these restrictions.
Non-degree enrollment is subject to the availability of faculty, space and facilities. Apply here.
