We are pleased that you have decided to further your education at the University of Florida. We have been awarding graduate degrees since 1908 and now offer more than 200 degrees through the Graduate School.
The University of Florida is one of only 17 public, land-grant universities that belong to the Association of American Universities. UF is home to 16 colleges, about 140 academic departments, and more than 200 graduate degree programs. UF was ranked among the top 20 research universities in the United States by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. UF ranks third in the nation among public universities in awarding the most earned doctorates. It ranks 10th in the number of patents awarded and 13th among public universities in research expenditures.
When you are ready to apply, remember that the graduate admission process involves two offices, the Office of Admissions and your academic unit's office. Selected materials may be sent to both so check with your academic unit for materials that they may require.
Admission requirements include a recognized baccalaureate, graduate or professional degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or a comparable degree from an international institution.
For applicants with a bachelor's degree only, a minimum grade point average of B (3.0), calculated from all grades and credits after the semester where the applicant reached 60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours and Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores that are acceptable to the applicant's intended academic unit or, for select programs, at least 465 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). These scores are used in the context of a holistic credential review process.
These are general admission requirements. You should contact the academic unit for specific program criteria and deadlines. Based upon the program to which you apply, you may be required to submit items such as transcripts, recommendation letters, and more.
If you are interested in becoming a UF graduate student, you should apply online no later than the deadline specified by the academic unit. You also should carefully follow the instructions in the admissions application checklist.
If you have not already visited UF, we urge you to schedule a visit. A campus visit is the best way to find out if UF is the right place for you.
