Transfer Admissions

Transfer admission to the university is selective and many colleges have limited enrollment. Satisfaction of minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Transfer applicants who meet minimum admission requirements for UF, the college and the intended major will be referred to the appropriate college for an admission decision.


What is a Transfer Applicant?

A transfer applicant is an undergraduate student with at least 60 transferrable semester credit hours and that has not earned a Bachelor’s degree. Students who have less than 60 transferrable credit hours or have already earned their Bachelor’s degree will only be considered for admission into UF Online degree programs.

There are two types of on campus transfer applicants:

1. Students with an AA degree from a Florida public state college:

have preference of admission into the University of Florida. Their AA degree ensures that they have 60 credit hours and have already completed general education and Gordon Rule requirements, which are needed to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree.

Requirements:

  • Completion of two sequential courses of foreign language in secondary school, 8-10 sequential semester hours at the postsecondary level, or documentation of an equivalent level of proficiency.
  • Applicants seeking admission to a program in Teacher Education or Building Construction must submit SAT or ACT scores to the Office of Admissions after submitting an application.
  • A transcript from each institution attended, regardless of length of attendance or credit earned. Additional transcripts are required as soon as they are available for any work completed after applying to UF.

When Should I Apply?

Applications can be submitted up to one year in advance of the entering term. You should apply at least six months before the entry term. It is very important to apply by the deadline. Transfer applicants should consult the college to which they intend to apply for information specific to their program. In a number of programs, the sequence of required courses begins ONLY in the fall term of the junior year. Should you delay filing an application, you may not be able to furnish the necessary records in time for admission.
