Pathway to Campus Enrollment
PaCE: combining online and residential learning
Pathway to Campus Enrollment, or PaCE, provides freshmen with the opportunity to start their UF degree online and then transition to campus in order to complete an undergraduate degree. Our campus has limited physical space to accommodate the many qualified students who desire a UF education. Through PaCE, we are now able to expand our admission offers to more of the best and brightest students. Applicants are considered for PaCE through the regular freshman application.
The PaCE program offers an excellent academic experience, combining online and campus-based learning. Students selected for PaCE will complete at minimum 15 credit hours and two semesters through UF Online. After completing a total of 60 credit hours as well as all prerequisite courses for the major, students transition to campus.
As its name implies, students are able to proceed at their own PaCE, on their own schedule and complete classes from wherever they wish to study.
