Registration for the online Graduate Business Professional Specialization occurs each fall and spring term.


To register for the online Graduate Business Professional Specialization, all students must either (a) be in good standing in a non-business graduate program at FSU or (b) be admitted to FSU as a post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking student.

There are no prerequisite courses or GMAT score required for the program.

Please note: The Business Professional Specialization is not a Florida State University degree program. Completion of the specialization does not provide entry to any College of Business graduate program, and courses completed in the program cannot be used for credit toward any graduate degree. The Business Professional Specialization is intended only for professional development for students who have earned an undergraduate degree in a non-Business field.


Choose the schedule that best meets your needs. The specialization courses are offered in the fall andspring terms. Students who are already in a graduate program at FSU can enroll in the BPS courses during their regular registration window.

Students who are not already enrolled in a graduate program at FSU who are interested in completing the specialization will need to apply to FSU as a Non-Degree Seeking Student, the application for which can be found here: Please note that there is a $30 application fee. Those who are applying as Non-Degree Seeking Students should note the following deadlines:

  • The fall term begins in late August. The deadline is August 1.
  • The spring term begins in early January. The deadline is December 1.
