Pathway to Campus Enrollment (PaCE)

The PaCE program offers an additional pathway to UF for freshmen applicants with considerable academic potential and demonstrated scholastic success. Through this program, students begin their degree through UF Online and then transition to campus to complete their degree.


For more information about this program, visit the PaCE Admissions site and access frequently asked questions. For further information about college-specific questions contact Andrew Horvath, PaCE Academic Adviser and South Florida-based Recruiter.

If you are interested in professional school, you can be a competitive applicant for medical, dental, and veterinary school through the PaCE program if you work closely with your advisor regarding where you should take your critical tracking courses. 

When you sign your PaCE contract, you are agreeing to meet a set of standards for the major you listed on your admission application in order to transition to campus enrollment after earning 60 credit hours. To transition successfully to UF, students must complete each of the following requirements:

  • A minimum of 60 credit hours (includes AP, AICE, IB CLEP, and dual enrollment).
  • A minimum of 15 credits through UF Online over a two semester span.
  • The prerequisite (or critical tracking) courses for your specific major.
  • Earn a minimum 2.0 cumulative UF GPA.
  • Earn a minimum 2.0 cumulative UF GPA and 2.0 cumulative GPA at all other institutions attended
