Undergraduate students may apply for the certificate through the University of Florida Office of Admissions.

At UF, the process for all certificates is the same, and very similar to that for degree programs. Students should apply for admission to the certificate before taking the first prerequisite course but can transfer a course if it was taken with a year before being admitted to the certificate. Admitted students should apply to receive the certificate at the outset of their last semester.
