Frequently asked Questions
How long does it take to complete the certificate?
It is up to the student to decide how many courses to take per semester. Most students take one or two courses per semester. One course per semester would take four semesters.
Will my certificate say “online” or be different compared to a traditional on-campus certificate?
The certificate will not say “online” and it will be the same as a certificate earned on-campus.
Is this certificate 100% online? Will I have to come to campus?
All courses are 100% online and students are not required to come to campus.
Can I begin taking courses as a non-degree student, and then be formally admitted and receive a certificate?
Courses taken as a non-degree seeking student cannot be officially transferred into a certificate program. However, these courses can be used to satisfy course requirements. Please be aware that non-degree coursework will not show UF credit earned on the UF transcript. Therefore, when you complete the course and it is listed on your official transcript, Grade Points, Earned Hours, and Hours Carried will read zero. Those fields are only completed for UF degree seeking students.
Can I transfer credits to another university?
If you are currently earning a degree at another institution, it would be at their discretion whether credits could be transferred.
Is the certificate accredited?
All courses and certificates offered by the University of Florida are regionally accredited by SACS. More information is available here: http://sacs.aa.ufl.edu/
Can I start the certificate in any semester?
Yes, students can start in Fall, Spring or Summer.
How is testing done?
Testing is done via webcam by ProctorU.
Can I skip a semester?
UF has recently updated their “skipped term” policy to exclude the Summer term. Now students only need to reapply for admission if they have missed back to back Spring and Fall terms.
I live outside of the United States. Can I take this certificate?
