Exclude a user from SSO Policy

Am I going to be able to exclude a user that is part of my organization from a specific policy or once we Verify our Domain it will automatically include all the users that with an email address from our domain and  then when we enable SSO it will be automatically be applied to all users with no possibility of an exception?
