What is some important information I need to know?
  • Students may enroll in Flexible Learning courses at any time but need to complete their course(s) within 16 weeks from their date of enrollment. It is important to establish a regular study schedule as soon as the course materials are received, monitor progress closely, and do not lose track of time.

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. (UF students need academic approval to drop a course.)
  • Grade Posting: final grades are posted to the student’s transcript to the term they enrolled in, regardless of the term in which the course is completed, as determined by the university calendar.

Can I access a course syllabus before registering?

Yes. See a full list of our courses here. The course table is searchable and sortable and includes a link to the syllabus for each course.

How do I calculate tuition?

On the Courses page, click the link that says "Tuition & Fees" associated with your course of interest. The pop-up box includes an estimate of your tuition and fees. Tuition is also listed in the right column of each course profile. Notice that the price is per credit. There is also a Distance Learning Fee, which is per credit as well.

Calculate tuition:

  1. Determine which tuition applies to you
  2. Determine the number of credits that you will take through Flexible Learning
  3. Multiply the tuition by the number of credits
  4. Multiply the Distance Learning Fee by the number of credits
  5. Add to obtain a total

Textbook prices and tax for textbooks are not included in tuition calculation.

How do I get a transcript?

The final course grade will appear on a UF transcript. Some institutions have limits on the number of Distance Learning courses or transfer credits they will accept, so it is student's responsibility to check on the transfer of credit before enrolling.

Ordering Transcripts

Transcripts are available through ONE.UF. Use this site to verify that your final grade has been posted prior to ordering a transcript. During normal business hours, the final course grade will automatically be sent to the UF Registrar's office. Students must allow at least 10 business days for the registrar to post grades to a transcript.

There is a fee the registrar will collect prior to sending an official transcript to another institution. For more information, visit ONE.UF for ordering a UF transcript.

If the online system cannot be used, contact the UF Registrar for instructions to mail in a request with a check or money order. They can be contacted by phone Monday-Friday, 8:00am to 5:00pm, at 352-392-1374. Persons with hearing impairments can call FRS # 800-955-8771 (TDD).
