All Transfer Applicants Must

- Submit all high school and postsecondary transcripts.
Official transcripts can be sent to UF in two ways: paper transcript received by UF in a sealed envelope or electronic transcripts sent from your institution directly to UF. Most Florida public high schools, universities and community colleges prefer to send transcripts electronically, saving you up to two weeks response time.
