Students should begin the application process one year in advance of the semester in which they intend to enroll.
All application materials below must be received by the following deadlines. No exceptions will be made.ISOM Critical Dates Calendar
- January 11: international applicants
- June 1: domestic applicants (U.S. citizens & permanent residents only)
- August 1: international applicants
- October 1: domestic applicants (U.S. citizens & permanent residents only)
With over 1,000 applications to process annually, applicants will not be informed individually about missing materials. It is the responsibility of the applicant to read the application instructions carefully and to submit all materials as requested and ensure that they have been received by the deadline. If you have doubts as to whether items have been received, you are encouraged to check your status online or with the program directly prior to the deadline so that any outstanding issues may be resolved by the deadline. If any materials are missing at the time of the application deadline, the application will not be reviewed, but may be deferred to the following semester at the applicant's request.
There are no prerequisites to the program. However, students without an undergraduate business major or minor will need to take a set of core business courses that add an additional semester of study to the program for a full two years.
All applicants must have a previous bachelor's degree, master's degree or doctoral degree from an accredited college or university, or an equivalent as determined by the UF Office of Admission's evaluation of official transcripts.
Grade Point Average
US applicants, or applicants who graduated from an accredited US college or university, must have an upper division undergraduate grade point average of 3.00 or higher. In the case of non-US applicants, the UF Office of Admission will determine degree equivalency.
The ISOM Department requires that applicants take all portions of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). You may email Jessica Samson (Jessica.Samson at warrington.ufl.edu) for the latest minimal GMAT/GRE score requirements. Please visit MBA.com or GRE.org for test preparation materials, to register for one of the tests or to forward your official score to UF using the institution code of 5812. Since it can take up to eight weeks for the Admissions Office to process your test score, it is important to allow for this delay by taking the exam well in advance of the application deadline.
Interviews are required for all international applicants. Those exempt from this requirement are applicants from India, those with U.S. bachelor's degrees and all other applicants from countries on this list.
For any academic class activity, students must follow the University of Florida Student Honor Code.
