When to Apply to UF
One of the factors to consider in applying to UF is the term you identify to enter the university. The standard entry point is the fall semester in late August. However, many freshmen now choose Summer B in June, when there aren't as many students at the university. Beginning freshmen sometimes need the slower pace of summer to acclimate themselves to college and campus life.
Freshman applications will be available online in September. The preferred application period is September 3 through November 1.
Admission priority is provided to qualified applicants whose applications and supporting documents are received by the Office of Admissions during the preferred application period -- September 3 through November 1. Applications received outside this period will be considered on a space-available basis only.
Summer B Term
Summer B is no different from fall in terms of competition, as all freshman applicants are evaluated as a class. There is no distinction between terms, so there is no admission advantage or disadvantage to choosing summer or fall entry.
Living On Campus
Please keep in mind that if you want to live on campus, applying early is a good strategy, as on-campus housing is limited and is first come-first served. The later you apply to UF, the later you will receive your housing application.
