Freshman Dates & Deadlines

Starting in the Fall of 2024, the University of Florida will provide two options for prospective students to apply: Early Action (EA) and Regular Decision (RD). EA is a non-binding way to apply to UF. It allows students more time to explore their housing and financial aid options. If applicants submit their EA application file before the specified deadlines, they will receive an admission decision sooner than ever before.

Application Deadlines & Options 2024-25
Early Action Regular Decision
Application Deadline November 1 January 15
Materials Deadline* November 15 January 31
Decision Notification January 24 March 14
Decision Outcomes Admit, Deny or Defer Admit, Waitlist, Pathways or Deny

*Materials Deadline

For the materials deadlines above, you must submit all of the application materials (SSAR or high school transcript, and the self-reported or official test scores) by the November 15 Early Action deadline or the January 31 Regular Decision deadline.

SSAR Deadline

If you have met the November 1 application deadline, submit the SSAR by the November 15 Early Action deadline. If you have met the January 15 application deadline, submit the SSAR by the January 31 Regular Decision deadline. Changes and corrections should be made prior to the respective SSAR deadline. After this date, your SSAR information will be locked for editing and if a change is necessary after this deadline, contact Admissions via our Contact page.

Official Test Score Submission Deadline

SAT, ACT, and/or Classic Learning Test (CLT) scores may be sent directly from the testing agency or self-reported through your application status page. If your official test scores are not received by the May 1 deadline, you will not be eligible for enrollment.

Official Transcript(s) Deadline

Make arrangements to send your final transcript(s) to our office by July 15, as your school may not automatically do this and your enrollment at UF is dependent on this submission. Students can track the receipt of their transcript(s) on their application status page.

Official transcripts may be sent to UF in two ways: paper transcripts received by UF in a sealed envelope or electronic transcripts sent from your school directly to UF, which can save up to two weeks response time. UF accepts electronic transcripts through FASTER, Parchment, National Student Clearing House, ScribbleSoft, e-Scrip Safe, Credential Solutions, SCOIR, or Transcripts Plus.
