Non-Degree Classification

The non-degree classification is used only by those students who will not be working toward a degree at UWF.  Successful completion of courses in this classification does not provide a basis for degree status. 

Students who have never attended UWF must complete the Undergraduate Non-Degree Application.  Students are not required to submit an application fee or transcripts for admission purposes, although many academic departments may need a student’s unofficial transcript to show that a course prerequisite has been satisfied.

Returning non-degree students not in attendance at UWF for three or more consecutive academic semesters (including summer semester) must complete the Undergraduate Non-Degree Application.

Important Information for Non-Degree Students

  • Non-degree students are not eligible to receive financial aid benefits
  • Current and continuing degree seeking students have course registration priority. Non-degree student registration opens approximately two weeks prior to the first day of classes for the semester.
  • Compliance with the immunization policy is required prior to registration.
  • To be considered for degree-seeking status, students must complete and submit the application for admission, including all required documentation and the non-refundable application fee before the published application deadline date for the term desired. Credits earned under the non-degree classification will not be used in the admissions evaluation process.
  • Course work completed at UWF as a Non-Degree seeking student cannot be used as a part of evaluation for admission to UWF as a Degree-Seeking student.
