U of Florida Online Students Get Access to Campus Amenities

April 21, 2016

The University of Florida will this fall let its fully online students pay an optional fee to get at least parts of a traditional college experience. For about $46 a credit hour, students enrolled in the online degree programs offered through UF Online will be able to access recreation centers, ride the campus shuttle, buy discounted tickets to athletic events, use university health services and more. Evangeline J. Tsibris Cummings, executive director of UF Online, said the fee package is intended for online students who have relocated to Gainesville. About 20 percent of UF Online's 1,700 students live in the city, she said, though that share increases to about half of first-time-in-college students.
