Assessment is continuous throughout the semester and consists of written assignments, timed multiple choice quizzes, and self tests. Students interact with teaching assistants, course instructors, and each other, using private course e-mail, discussion boards, and live chat sessions.

Students can register for one or more courses each semester. All certificate programs are conducted fully online, however all MS students must attend the UF campus for three days in their final semester to take the MS degree written qualifying exam.
