UF Flexible Learning is available to UF students with advisor and DCE approval if the student is unable to attend a residential course on campus and that course is not offered online. UF Students can work with their advisors to determine if a Flexible Learning course is appropriate. Students register through the Flexible Learning website, not through the registrar. In order to finalize a registration request, UF Students require the Course Approval Form to be completed and signed by their Academic Advisor. Please do not submit proof of residency as that will be confirmed by the Flexible Learning Staff. If you are a Florida resident and have Florida Prepaid, you can apply that to your Flexible Learning course.
UF students may apply up to two (2) Flexible Learning courses towards a degree and must seek college dean’s office approval to exceed this limit. Advisors and the DCE office will approve access to a Flexible Learning course if the student is below the two (2) course limit and meets at least one (1) of the following criteria:
We can also accept the signed advisor approval through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
