Options for:Transfer Applicants

When You Are Denied Admission to UF

We appreciate your desire to transfer to the University of Florida. The admissions process at our university is highly competitive, and unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all qualified and eligible applicants due to limited space in our academic colleges.

Your transfer application was reviewed within the Office of Admissions to assure that the following university minimum standards were met:

  • At least 60 semester hours of transferable credit
  • A 2.0 GPA overall GPA and a 2.0 GPA at the last school attended
  • Proof that the foreign language requirement has been satisfied for admission

If your admission letter lists one of these reasons for your denial and you feel you have documented extenuating circumstances that impacted your ability to meet the requirement, you may appeal your admissions decision. To initiate a university level appeal, please email transfer@admissions.ufl.edu, attaching your letter of appeal, any supporting documentation, and a letter of support from the college/major to which you applied.

If you have been denied admission by the college, first look at your admission letter to see if there are ways to improve your competitiveness should you decide to apply again. If you feel you have extenuating circumstances that affected your previous grades or new information to provide then you should use the transfer contacts page to contact the appropriate college admission representative regarding the steps for filing your appeal.

Due to the thoroughness of our application review process, it is unusual for the university or a college to reverse an admission decision. An appeal will only be considered if it provides new and compelling information.
