Employer Pathways

UF Online is proud to partner with progressive employers that support students as they pursue their University of Florida bachelor’s degree through UF Online

Launched in 2018, the University of Florida Online Employer Pathways Program now bridges work and academics for over 1 million workers across the United States who wish to pursue their studies online at UF while working and supporting themselves and their loved ones.

Working in collaboration with the University of Florida, employers are forging new pathways for their workers into UF’s many academic offerings. Moreover, the flexibility and versatility of UF Online enables students to pursue their academic goals while working full-time or tending to other pressing responsibilities, including the care of family members or service in their communities. UF remains committed to providing flexible and accessible pathways so that students may earn a valuable UF degree while also focusing on other important aspects of their full lives.
