Documentation for UF Students

UF Flexible Learning is available to UF students with advisor and Distance Program Services 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 Distance Program Services 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:

  • The student has a health concern.
  • There are circumstances preventing the student from physically being on campus and the course is not offered online.
  • The student requires off-calendar, flexible format solution for an “unusual circumstance.” Such a circumstance would include health, work, or other events, which make resident attendance not possible.

Registration Process for UF Students:

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 learn@dce.ufl.edu. Distance Program Services will provide the final approval and notify the student.
