Several CALS majors are offered at locations outside of Gainesville, including:
The purpose of Statewide Programs is to reach place-bound students, i.e., those who wish to enroll in one of the unique programs CALS offers without moving to Gainesville and giving up a job or family responsibilities. The academic standards, curriculum, and student privileges within the programs are exactly the same as those on the Gainesville campus. Transcripts and diplomas are identical to those earned in Gainesville.
Statewide program locations include Apopka, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Pierce, Miami-Dade College, Milton and Plant City. Click on the locations in the map above for more details on programs at specific locations. Programs are "2+2" or degree completion in nature, where the first 2 years of courses are taken at a community college, and the last 2 years are taken at the UF/CALS Center.
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.
