Non-Degree Seeking

The University of Florida Department of Aging and Geriatric Research offers all courses on a non-degree seeking basis. Students can take up to six credit hours (two courses) per semester as non-degree seeking students to expand their knowledge base in the growing field of gerontology. This is also a great way for students to experience online education at UF and ease into an advanced degree. Clinical experience is not required.

Transfer Credits

Credits taken as a non-degree seeking student can later be transferred toward the online master of science in gerontology or graduate certificate in aging and geriatric practice. Students must first be accepted into the program and earn a grade of “B” or higher to transfer credits.
