How to Enroll
Currently we only accept USF students. We hope to accept non-USF students soon.
The certificate program is separate from a bachelor's and master's degree. You can take courses with us at any time. Courses taken during the program cannot be used towards a master's degree at USF.
There are two payment methods for receiving the USF GIS certification:
- Degree Units - You can take the standard USF GIS classes at the normal tuition rate with no additional charge.
- Non-Degree Units - These units do not count towards a USF degree and cannot be applied to a degree at a later date.
Each course costs $900 and you will need to complete five courses to receive certification.
Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) Benefits
Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit can be used to pay for degree units if you are a student enrolled in one of USF's degree granting programs and take the required classes as part of that degree.
The Post-9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit cannot be used to pay for non-degree units or the program fees. We do offer courses at a discounted rate. Each course is $900.
