Plant City is one of several statewide locations through the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) offering courses to complete your degree program. Students can earn a bachelor’s degree from Plant City without moving to Gainesville and giving up a job or family.
These programs are degree completion in nature. Students earn their associate of arts degree, typically at a community or state college, and transfer to UF/IFAS CALS at Plant City to compete their degree. The academic standards, curriculum, and student privileges are exactly the same as those on the Gainesville campus. Transcripts and diplomas are identical to those earned in Gainesville.
Classes are scheduled 1-2 days a week to accomodate students' busy lives. 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.
