We are pleased that you have decided to further your education at the University of Florida. We have been awarding graduate degrees since 1908 and now offer more than 200 degrees through the Graduate School.
The University of Florida is ranked among the top 20 research universities in the United States by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. UF ranks fourth in the nation among public universities in awarding the most earned doctorates. It ranks 10th in the number of patents awarded and 16th among public universities in research expenditures.
When you are ready to apply, remember that the graduate admission process involves two offices, the Office of Admissions and your academic unit's office. Material must be sent to both.
Minimum requirements include a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or a comparable degree from an international institution, a minimum grade average of B for all upper-division undergraduate work and scores that are acceptable for the program to which you are applying. You must also have acceptable scores on the General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).
These are general admission requirements. You should contact the academic unit for specific program criteria, which will require you to submit such items as transcripts, recommendation letters, and more.
If you are interested in becoming a UF graduate student, you should apply online no later than specified in the application deadline. You also should carefully follow the instructions in the admissions application checklist.
If you have not already visited UF, we urge you to schedule a visit. A campus visit is the best way to find out if UF is the right place for you.
