CALS Statewide Locations
In addition to the Gainesville location, CALS students may take undergraduate courses online or at several of our statewide locations outside of Gainesville. Several of our undergraduate majors are offered at these locations through the transfer admissions process.
The purpose of the CALS Statewide course offerings is to reach place-bound students. Take a course or two, or enroll in one of the unique programs CALS offers without moving to Gainesville and giving up a job or family responsibilities.
These programs are degree completion in nature. Students earn their associate of arts degree, typically at a state college, and transfer to UF/CALS and complete their degree at the UF/CALS location. The academic standards, curriculum, and student privileges are exactly the same as those on the Gainesville campus. Transcripts and diplomas are identical to those earned in Gainesville.
Classes are scheduled primarily in the evenings to accommodate the schedules of those that work full-time. Each program is a blend of live and online classes to enhance flexibility and minimize travel. Class size is small, and students develop close working relationships with the faculty, staff, and other students. Each location has a unique learning environment, which includes libraries, classrooms, computer facilities, and excellent field and laboratory facilities.
