Academics

We have a simple philosophy at UF Online: To become the best, you must learn from the best.

Our program stands at the forefront, providing flexible academic options with the same faculty and rigor that make us a leading university. We don’t compromise our standards because we are the standard. We demand more from our students because we demand more from ourselves as a university.
