Visiting and Non-Degree Seeking Students

Visiting or non-degree seeking students are not required to meet with an academic advisor prior to registering for UWF classes. Non-degree seeking students are responsible for understanding and abiding by certain requirements and policies. Non-degree applicants are not required to submit any transcripts for admission purposes. Although, many academic departments may need a student's unofficial transcript to show that a course pre-requisite has been satisfied. Once you have been cleared for registration and submit the required next step documents you can register online. Visit the step-by-step registration guide for detailed information on accessing the student information and the course registration.
