The Office of Admissions seeks to build a community of leaders, learners and thinkers whose education will be enhanced by diverse experiences and who will be prepared to serve and participate in all segments of society.
The admissions process is designed to consider all aspects of an applicant's academic record and personal experiences.
The admissions review process tries to balance the subjective and objective components of the application. Admission officers can exercise flexibility and professional judgment in their reviews and decisions, but they also must apply consistent standards. Every evaluation retains a focus on academic achievement and the applicant's overall potential for success at the University of Florida.
UF's application is designed to facilitate individual holistic consideration.
The university recognizes that there is great variation among applicants' personal circumstances, home communities and high schools, including those schools' course offerings and grading practices. Admission officers, therefore, have a responsibility to consider all factors when evaluating applications and to admit those applicants who are academically qualified and who have demonstrated a potential to contribute to and to be successful students at the University of Florida.
