Frequently Asked Questions

What is Flexible Learning?

Flexible Learning courses are online, open-enrollment credit courses. The coursework is self-paced as long as it is submitted on a consistent basis, such as weekly or bi-weekly, and the course is completed within 16 weeks of the enrollment date.

All of the Flexible Learning credit courses are offered online through the e-Learning management system called Canvas. The undergraduate credit courses offered are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. 

How do I enroll and view the course syllabus?

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.

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.
  • Refund Policy: tuition refund, within 30 days of enrollment; written request required via learn@dce.ufl.edu.
  • Course Drop Policy: To drop a course, email the Flexible Learning office at learn@dce.ufl.edu. with a request to drop within 14 weeks of the date of enrollment. 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.

For any questions regarding policies, please contact Flexible Learning by learn@dce.ufl.edu.

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.

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. Add to obtain a total

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

How do I order a transcript?

Verify your unofficial transcript to ensure your grade is posted prior to ordering. 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.

There is a fee the registrar will collect prior to sending an official transcript to another institution; visit ONE.UF to  order your 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).
