CLS as a Second Degree

Required courses and other information for students who already have a degree


Students using high tech equipment

Approximately a third of our students already have a Bachelors or Masters degree, most likely in Biology or Chemistry. Usually these students can satisfy the pre-requisite coursework while they are completing the CLS program. The advisor will make a special degree plan for the applicant to address deficiencies.

Call 850-474-3060 to talk to an advisor, and be prepared to email or fax your transcripts for evaluation. For the consultation, an unofficial transcript will suffice. Email is kbehan@uwf.edu, and the fax number is (850) 474-2749.

We’ll add this – we LOVE our post baccalaureate students. The median age for a CLS senior is 26 years old. Students working on a second bachelor’s are usually eligible for Financial Aid.
