Please see the university’s policy for students interested in pursuing certificates at UF, specifically the AI Fundamentals and Applications certificate.

  • Per university catalog, certificates must contain at least 9 credits of unique coursework to that program that do not apply toward other certificates and minors. Therefore, if you are pursuing the AI Track Innovation Minor, you are NOT eligible to pursue the AI Fundamentals and Applications certificate as EEL3872, PHI3681, and the College Specific AI course are all required for both the minor and certificate.
  • If you want to pursue the AI certificate, then you must complete the General Track Innovation Minor.
