A non-degree seeking student is a student who has not applied to a degree-seeking program. There are many different types of non-degree seeking students – transient students, senior audit students or someone who simply wants to take classes for personal enrichment or to increase his or her skill level.
Transient students (those who are earning a degree at a university other than USF, but wish to take a class here) should seek the proper transient student/cross-enrollment forms from their home institution in order to transfer credits. Check with your advisor to make sure that the courses you take at USF St. Petersburg will properly transfer to your university.
Senior Auditors are non-degree seeking students over the age of 60 who want to continue their education by taking free courses at USF St. Petersburg. These students should view the Senior Audit website and speak with the Office of Records and Registration before applying.
