Before 2012, students who wanted to pursue an online degree at one of Florida’s public colleges or universities would have to navigate through a maze of websites, trying to cobble together a set of classes that would meet the requirements for their program.

Now they can simply click on the Florida Virtual Campus website to view more than 700 online degree programs offered by the public higher education institutions and access a range of student services.
