Program Description

The consortium’s doctoral courses are transmitted to Tallahassee, Jacksonville and Pensacola via an interactive audio-visual system. Students attend classes simultaneously on three campuses. Doctoral classes are offered one day per week. Students may transfer a maximum of 9 credits in a minor or area of specialization and an additional 6 credits of elective courses, from the participating consortium universities to the University of Florida in order to meet the required 62 credits for the degree. Note: The University of Florida Graduate School will not accept satisfactory grades as transfer credits. Transfer courses must be graded in order for the student to receive credit.
