UF Flexible Learning’s start-anytime course offerings are a great solution for students enrolled at the University of Florida. UF students register for Flex courses through our website and not through the registrar. However, we cannot complete a UF student’s registration without having a signed advisor approval form (Course Approval Form). No need to submit proof of residency for in-state tuition—we can check on that in our office! By the way, if you are a Florida resident and have Florida Prepaid, you could apply that to your Flex course.
We can also accept advisor approval through email. Just have your advisor send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Any UF student seeking to use financial aid (other than Florida Prepaid) for a Flexible Learning course should speak with a representative from the Student Financial Affairs Office to determine if their financial aid can be applied towards their Flexible Learning course. Also, visit the Financial Aid Office’s website for policies concerning UF Flexible Learning.
Florida Prepaid – If you choose to use Florida Prepaid, email email@example.com with your full name, your FLORIDA PREPAID ACCOUNT NUMBER, and state that you want to use Florida Prepaid for your enrollment. You also need to register online at UF Flexible Learning, however, the total shown will not be charged to your card. After you register online, your fees will be adjusted when the registration is processed by one of our staff members. Students will then be charged for the amount not covered by their Florida Prepaid plan (remaining tuition, Distance Learning fee, textbooks and applicable 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.
Be advised, Flexible Learning courses cannot be used for credit towards admission. Courses taken through our department will remain permanently on the student's transcript and may impact future acceptance to UF.
