Top-caliber students attend UF from every county in the state of Florida, every state in the United States, and from more than 100 countries.

International students are encouraged to apply early to prevent application processing and visa delays. You should apply online no later than the application deadline.

When reviewing applications from international applicants, the Office of Admissions considers the characteristics of the national system of education, the level of studies completed, the quality of achievement, the type of institution attended, and the suitability of preparation for the proposed program. Applicants who are applying as first-year freshmen should have an appropriate certificate of completion of senior secondary school studies.

Test scores and the level of English language proficiency are important considerations in the admissions review.

International students must also prove they have sufficient funds available to them to pay for their educational and living expenses while enrolled at UF.
