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.

Payment

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.
