Program Description

Nursing Nondegree students may take nursing graduate courses as a nondegree-seeking post-baccalaureate student on a space-available basis. See the Policies  section of this Catalog for details on the possible use of these courses toward a degree. Completion of post-baccalaureate courses does not guarantee admission to the graduate program or their use in a degree program.

Students should choose the Nursing Nondegree option on the application to facilitate processing of files. Students may take nursing graduate classes as a nondegree-seeking post-baccalaureate student on a space-available basis. It is possible that no courses will have space available in a given semester as students in the graduate nursing programs receive priority for enrollment. Please contact the College of Nursing Graduate Office for registration assistance at gradnurseadvisor@ucf.edu.

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, Nursing Nondegree 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 9 credit hours or more to be considered in full-time status.


Students with a BSN can enroll in graduate nursing courses as nondegree on a space-available basis. Students will be required to complete and submit a Non-degree Student Registration Request Form to be registered. Students can only transfer courses taken in nondegree status with a “B” grade or better into a graduate nursing program. Transfer credit limitations apply to nondegree students and will vary depending on the program. Please refer to the Graduate Catalog for Policies  related to nondegree-seeking students and transfer of credit.  

Nursing nondegree enrollment will be limited to the following courses:
