College: Community Innovation and Education

Program Description

The Education Undecided/Certification program is for students who have completed at least a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university in the United States and are not seeking a graduate degree. Students in this status may be interested in taking graduate courses for personal or professional enhancement or to prepare for possible admission to a graduate degree-seeking or certificate program in the College of Community Innovation and Education at UCF.

Not all graduate degree programs in the UCF College of Community Innovation and Education allow students in this status to enroll in their courses. It is best to contact the program director for the graduate program that offers the course prior to applying. If eligible, students in this status may take only 5000- or 6000-level courses (unless seeking certification).

Admission into Education Undecided/Certification status does not guarantee admission to a graduate degree-seeking or certificate program at UCF. International students are not eligible for this status unless they hold an eligible visa. International students taking online courses from their home country are eligible to be nondegree seeking since they do not require a visa. 

Please Note: In general, Education Undecided/Certification students are not eligible for financial aid, assistantships, or fellowships, although it is best to check with the Office of Student Financial Assistance for specific details. Nondegree-seeking students must be enrolled in 12 credit hours or more to be considered in full-time status.

Application Requirements

Admission is open to those with a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. An application to the graduate certificate program and official transcripts must be submitted. Applicants must apply online. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.

In addition to completing the online application, Education Undecided/Certification applicants will need to submit official, final transcripts from a regionally accredited institution showing a conferred bachelor’s degree.

Education Undecided/Certification students will also be required to submit an Immunization Form prior to enrollment. Although this form is not used in the admission process, students will not be allowed to enroll at UCF without submitting the required Immunization Form.
