In February 2021, the University of Florida Office of Admissions invited just over 15,000 new students to join The Gator Nation.

Each year, we are presented with an increasingly competitive freshman applicant pool of hard-working, deeply involved, academically dedicated students. It is a challenge to make admissions decisions, as we recognize the strengths of all applicants.

In 2020-21, we received a record number of nearly 53,000 applications for approximately 6,300 seats in the Class of 2025. Here’s our new profile:

The Class of 2025:

  • Middle 50% Academic Core GPA (recalculated): 4.4-4.6
  • Middle 50% SAT: 1330-1470
  • Middle 50% ACT: 30-34

We not only value students who have worked hard for four years to maintain strong grades with rigorous course loads, but those who have spent their time working within their community, getting involved at their school, and proving their passion through talents and employment. We are proud to have a class full of innovators, dreamers, artists and scholars.

Just over 600 students were admitted into Innovation Academy, a program dedicated to those with a creative and innovative mindset. IA offers 29 majors and a spring-summer enrollment schedule that gives students the fall semester off for travel, internships, research and other adventures.

Approximately 3,600 students were accepted into the Pathway to Campus Enrollment (PaCE) program. Students accepted into PaCE are Gators from Day One and take part in a blended college career of both online and on-campus classes.

With the varying interests of our admitted class came a wide array of intended majors. Here are the most popular:

  • Biology (offered in both the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences)
  • Undeclared
  • Business Administration
  • Computer Science
  • Psychology
  • Finance
  • Political Science
  • Mechanical Engineering
