Students should begin the application process one year in advance of the semester in which they intend to enroll.
All application materials must be received by the following deadlines:
- January 1 for international applicants
- June 1 for domestic applicants
- August 1 for international applicants
- October 1 for domestic applicants
With over 800 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.
Include three letters of recommendation, resume & statement of purpose. Please do not submit hard copies of these materials.
Please complete the graduate application and obtain your UF ID before sending the remaining application materials. The Application for Graduate Admission must be completed online as printed applications are no longer available. It is important to provide complete and accurate information. Incomplete information will delay the processing of your application.
The ISOM Department requires that applicants complete the quantitative and verbal sections of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). You may email Ms. Chandra Hardy (chandra.hardy 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.
Please note that it can take up to six weeks for the scores to be received and uploaded to our system, so you should plan accordingly for registering, completing and sending the exam results.
