A primary concern for working professionals studying part-time is the tuition cost of an advanced degree. Completely online students who take no face-to-face courses receive an out-of-state fee waiver, therefore our costs are very reasonable.
At the current time, the base rate for tuition per credit hour for incoming graduate students (Academic Year 2017-2018) is $448.73.
Students also pay a distance learning fee. Current fees can be found here.
Students take a minimum of 60 credits (depending on credits transferred from the Masters degree) to complete the program.
UF distance learning students are offered the same financial aid services as campus students through the main UF Student Financial Affairs office (www.sfa.ufl.edu). They can also be reached at +1-352-392-1275.
Prospective students are encouraged to visit http://www.distance.ufl.edu/state-authorization-status to be sure that this program is authorized in your respective state in the US. Prior to enrollment, students are also encouraged to visit their state educational agency or licensing board to ascertain whether or not they can utilize their degree program for additional compensation, initial licensing, or renewal of an educational license, as well as any other benefits.
