You’ve been admitted into one of the most unique hybrid undergraduate experiences in the country.
We’re here to help you find answers to any questions you may have. The Pathway to Campus Enrollment program enables students to begin their studies online and then transition to campus later on. The University of Florida’s Online program is a nationally recognized, highly-selective pathway for Gator undergraduates with over 20 fully online degrees. Through PaCE, UF offers so much more, including over 50 hybrid UF majors (start online, finish on campus). This is all part of the University of Florida’s commitment to expansive access to an elite education via remarkable digital pathways!

- On-Campus Experiences
While PaCE students take all of their classes online (prior to their campus transition) and do not have to pay certain fees, those who want a robust campus experience can move to Gainesville and participate in a variety of student activities and programs by opting into the Optional Fee Package.
By opting into this package, PaCE students have all of the same privileges of residential students, with the exception of attending live lectures (all classes are online) and living in on-campus housing. Some of these benefits include entry to sports games, free bus rides, gym use, and more. The UF Off Campus Life office is available to assist PaCE student needs.
