Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University

Non-Matriculated Option

Students are invited to take courses without committing to a certificate program. We can accommodate individuals with at least a bachelor’s degree in any area of study. If a non-matriculated student eventually applies to and is accepted by either the Cannabis Medicine, Cannabinoid Pharmacology, or Cannabinoid Pharmacology and Toxicology certificate program, credit for any courses in which he or she earned a “B” or above can be transferred.

Who should apply?

  • Individuals who have earned a bachelor's degree and wish to enroll in a course within the graduate cannabis certificate program.
  • To ensure credits are transferable, students are responsible for checking with their intended program or at their home institution.
