UF Distance Learning

Distance learning never felt so close to campus.  University of Florida students who learn online, experience life as a Gator and graduate with the same valued credentials as their on-campus peers.  UF students who are successful from a distance will earn an identical degree, as impressive to recruiters and employers as their residential peers.  UF is ranked second among all universities on SmartMoney list of schools whose graduates command the highest salary in return for their tuition dollars.  You’ll also find UF ranked third on Kiplinger’s list of “Best Values in Public Colleges.”  High value and highly valuable – that’s what a UF education is all about, both onsite or online.

What’s the best thing about an online degree from UF?  It’s a rich academic experience resulting in a degree from UF.  Realize your dream of a degree from the University of Florida; you don’t have to come to UF to go to UF.
