Greetings from Gainesville and Welcome to the Office of Admissions!

We are your director, admissions officers, and student body and we would like to welcome you to our Admissions blog. This blog is an open door to the Admissions Office at UF. All the major questions about our admissions process will be addressed as well as some tips and tricks to submitting a good application. We will also provide highlights of the University of Florida because, hey, we bleed orange and blue too. We encourage you to subscribe and feel free to comment and post questions that you may have and we will be happy to respond!

It’s hard to believe that we are already half way through the fall semester which means November 1st is quickly approaching. It’s very exciting and humbling to see all the application submissions even with our switch to the brand new Coalition application. As we begin to look over the applications, it looks like we will have our work cut out for us. It is clear that you all have put in a lot of effort in your applications which is exactly what we are looking for. If you haven’t submitted an application yet, you have 12 days, including today so get to it! In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 352-392-1365 to speak with an admissions officer.

Quick word of advice from our Orange county Admissions Officer, Chelsea: “Don’t wait until the last minute! We expect a rush of applications the last week before the deadline. Applications take about 24 to 48 hours to process and if for some reason there is an error that occurs with your submission, we will have time to work with you to rectify it and get it resubmitted by or before November 4th, so DON’T WAIT!”
