Non-Degree & Transient Students
Students who do not wish to seek a degree while at UWF, but wish to take classes should complete a Non-Degree or Transient student application.
If you wish to take courses at UWF and you are not interested in seeking a degree, you will complete a non-degree application.
Undergraduate Non-Degree Students
Undergraduate Non-degree candidates 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.
Please be aware:
- 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 after the open registration period has ended for degree seeking students. Learn more about academic dates & deadline periods.
Oftenly overlooked is the section on the application regarding Residency for Tuition Purposes. Please be sure to complete all sections of the non-degree application's residency section and be sure to provide evidence of residential status for your residency classification. Once cleared for Admission, non-degree students should learn more about the next steps in starting!
Florida Shines (Transient Students)
The Transient Student process is designed for degree-seeking students who are attending a Florida Public University or State/Community College and have permission to enroll in courses at UWF.
For questions about applying as a Florida Shines Transient student please contact the Office of the Registrar. Once cleared, transient students should learn more about completing their next steps in starting!
