All Innovation Academy students earn a minor in Innovation.
The Innovation minor comprises six different courses, allowing students to learn more about creativity, entrepreneurship, ethics, and leadership.
The Innovation Academy enrolls and supports academically talented students focused on developing knowledge to grow new ideas, unique opportunities, and cutting-edge services and products through curricular and co-curricular experiences.
Innovation Academy features a unique Spring / Summer academic calendar. This means students are free in the Fall to pursue internships in a far less competitive time of the year, seek opportunities for job shadowing and volunteering, participate in a study abroad program, and much more.
Pre-Enrollment is the time between receiving admission to Innovation Academy and officially starting classes in your first spring semester. Students can use this pre-enrollment fall to engage in various activities or begin coursework at UF online through Fall Connection courses.
The UF Department of Housing and Residence Education has collaborated with Innovation Academy to provide a campus residential experience designed to help students with a successful transition to UF. IA students who choose to live on campus will reside in the Innovation Academy Living Learning Community in Beaty Towers.
