Graduate Certificates

Graduate Certificates

Courses are available to traditional and distance-learning graduate students, both degree and non-degree seeking. Students should coordinate course and certificate completions with their department’s academic advisors. Students pursuing a graduate certificate must receive a “B” or better in both required and elective courses.

At UF, the application process for all certificates is the same and is similar to applying for degree programs.

Graduate students may apply for the certificate through the University of Florida Office of Admissions page by scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting the Currently Enrolled App button.

Students should preferably apply for admission to a certificate program before taking the first prerequisite course but can generally transfer a course if it was taken within a year before being admitted.  When applying for a certificate, students will be asked to select their intended start year for the certificate program.  This should be the semester/year in which a student is applying for the certificate program and NOT the projected semester/year that the student expects to graduate with the certificate.  Getting this entry correct is important to avoid administrative issues when applying to receive the certificate through the One.UF system.

Students admitted to a certificate program should apply to receive their certificate through One.UF at the beginning of the semester in which they intend to graduate. Students can opt to request the award of a completed certificate in advance of receiving their degree.
