After months of waiting, Decision Day is right around the corner! On Friday, February 26, the University of Florida will release decisions for freshman applications submitted before the November 16 Priority Deadline. We will soon have our class of #UF25! With less than two weeks left, we gathered a few tips about how to prepare for the big day.

  1. Know how to access your decision.
    Visit to view your decision on February 26 at 6 p.m. EST. Make sure you know your login information ahead of time and can access your account. After months of waiting, the last thing you want is to be wading through the password reset process to get your decision!
  2. Don’t stress out too much.
    Waiting on college decisions is a nerve-wracking time. Be confident in your abilities and what you have already achieved. No matter the decision, you have accomplished great feats during this challenging and unprecedented year. UF is just one of many roads to success.
  3. Find a comfortable space.
    On social media, you’ll see students surrounded by family as they nervously click the link. This can be a great way to celebrate but can also put a lot of pressure on you. Think about if you want to open your letter with people or by yourself. This is YOUR admission decision so you can do it however you want! Personally, I opened my decision with friends at a park because I knew they would be the right people either to help me celebrate or comfort me if I didn’t get in to UF.
  4. Have plans for post-decision, no matter what the outcome.
    Think about what will make you feel good no matter the decision you receive, and who are the right people to amplify your excitement or help you deal with disappointment.
  5. Be proud of yourself.
    At the end of the day, you are going to be graduating high school soon and have your entire future head of you. You will end up exactly where you’re supposed to be.
