Prospective Students

The first step in pursuit of an online degree is to determine if online learning is right for you.  Distance learning, while designed to be flexible and convenient, is also a rigorous and highly structured experience.  Prior to exploring what program might be right for you please consider taking a self-assessment survey.

Once you have decided that online learning is right for you the next step is to review the online programs available through Distance Learning.  Each online program at UF has an established process for applying to the program.  Please contact the department offering the program for specific information on admission criteria and the program-specific process for applying for admission. Upon confirmation of the specific requirements for admission, potential applicants can proceed to UF Admissions online.

UF offers many financial aid options to help students, regardless of their class and college. On the Student Financial Affairs' site you will find information on the application process, deadlines and different types of financial aid programs.
