UF Flexible Learning is available to UF students with advisor and DCE approval if the student is unable to attend a 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.
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:
Students will register through the Flexible Learning website. They will be required to submit the Course Approval Form completed and signed by their Academic Advisor. Course Approval forms must be submitted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. DCE will provide the final approval and notify the student.
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 funds can be used for UF Flexible Learning as well! During the registration process, you will have the opportunity to enter in your plan number.
The total shown will be a pre-authorization hold for the entire amount; however, your card will not be charged until we receive all necessary documents. 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. 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.
