Few Students Accept U of Florida Online Invitation

May 28, 2015
 

Just 256 of the 3,118 high school students who were offered a spot in the University of Florida's Pathway to Campus Enrollment program, or PaCE, have taken the deal, The Gainesville Sun reported. PaCE is an attempt by the university to use UF Online, its recently created online arm, to increase campus enrollment without placing further strain on its physical campus resources. Students in PaCE are required to complete 60 credits online before they are eligible to finish their degrees on campus. The university is reportedly satisfied with the program's conversion rate since it "rolled it out very late," according to Provost Joe Glover. However, the university has also been criticized for the launch, since many students were not aware of the program when they applied.
