UF Flexible Learning has courses that anyone can take

UF Flexible Learning’s start-anytime courses are open to anyone looking for an extra course, for any reason. Admissions to the University of Florida is not required to enroll in our courses (that means we don’t require transcripts, transient student forms or anything!) just simply register for the course you want and get started in no time.

Of course, you will want to check with your academic advisor to ensure that the credits you earn from the University of Florida will transfer. There are just a few other considerations for students enrolled at other schools.

Florida Residents

If you are a resident of the state of Florida, you will qualify to pay in-state tuition for your UF Flex class. You can prove your residency by emailing learn@dce.ufl.edu or faxing 352-392-6950 a copy of your Florida driver’s license or state ID. Other documents will work as well, including:

  • A Florida Voter Registration Card
  • Florida Vehicle registration
  • Florida Property Tax Receipt
  • A letter from your registrar stating FL residency is verified.

Please do not send original copies, and documents must prove at least one year of residency in the state of Florida.

Florida Prepaid

Several students in Florida have access to Florida Prepaid and those funds can be used for UF Flexible Learning as well! If you have this available, you will need to send an email to learn@dce.ufl.edu. Please title the email with your Full name and “FLORIDA PREPAID.” Include your full name and Florida Prepaid Account Number in the body of the email.

After that, you will still need to go through our registration process. The total shown will not be charged to your card. After you complete the registration process, your fees will be adjusted by our staff. You will be charged the balance of what is not covered by your Florida Prepaid plan (remaining tuition, the Administrative Fee, textbooks, and sales tax). After that, Florida Prepaid will be billed for the remaining tuition balance. You may contact Florida Prepaid at 800-552-4723 if you have any questions about your plan.

Other Considerations

  • Former UF students, who previously attended UF in a degree-seeking status, but did not subsequently earn a bachelor's degree, are not eligible for non-degree registration for re-admission to UF. You must first apply to be re-admitted to UF and be accepted before registering for the course.
  • Students not enrolled at the University of Florida who have academic goals such as graduation or applying to graduate school are strongly advised to complete their course(s) 14 days prior to their personal deadline. This is to ensure the grades will be posted in time for transcript requests.
  • Students, who have enrolled with us before, should ensure that they have cleared academic or financial holds at ONE.UF. Holds need to be cleared prior to our being able to complete your registration.
  • You should check with your academic advisor if you are repeating a Flexible Learning course to see what effect the grade has on your GPA.
  • Course Cancel: A tuition refund is granted within 30 days of enrollment; a request must be in writing and may be sent by fax (352-392-6950) or by email. Include in your email, your full name and the course you wish to cancel. Refunds will be the amount of tuition, less $25.00 per course. If a credit card was used to pay for tuition, the refund will be in the form of credit to that card. If textbooks are returned and are in original condition within 30 days of sale, you will be credited back the full amount. Allow 6 – 8 weeks for refund checks. Please call our office (800-327-4218) for up to date refund policies. No refunds are granted after 30 days.
  • Dropping a course: To drop a course, you need to email the Flexible Learning office at learn@dce.ufl.edu with a request to drop within 14 weeks of the date of enrollment. Include in the email the UF ID and a statement regarding the the course the student wants to drop. It is the student's responsibility to verify that all drop requests have been received by the Flexible Learning office within the allotted time. The course grade will appear as "W" on a UF transcript.

Students who have been denied admission to UF

Anyone who has been denied admission to UF will be asked to verify in writing that they are transferring any credits earned through Flexible Learning to another university.
