Beginning freshmen can choose to apply to enter UF in either the Summer B term, which begins in late June or early July, or the Fall term, which begins in late August. Students interested in the Innovation Academy enter in the Spring semester, which begins in January. The freshman priority deadline for all terms is November 1.
Freshman applications will be available online in mid-August. The priority application period is mid-August 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. 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
Incoming students are encouraged to apply for housing soon after completing their admissions application. Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis determined by a student’s housing application date. If you are interested in on-campus housing, we recommend submitting your application sooner rather than later. Additional housing information.
