UF Graduate Admissions Application

All applicants must fill out an application through the University of Florida Office of Admissions. Completing this application will generate an eight digit UFID which will be used to track your application. (Applicants with a UFID number will retain their current number.) The program office will not process any transcripts or test scores until a graduate admissions application is completed.

Use the following instructions to assist you in completing the graduate admissions application process:

  • Select "Summer B" or "Spring" as your entry term when asked.
  • Select "Business Administration — Entrepreneurship" and the appropriate track as your program of study
  • You will be required to enter your grades for the last 60 credits of your undergraduate programs. The Graduate School Admissions Office requires all applicants, including those with advanced degrees (Master's, D.V.M., Ph.D., M.D., etc.) to follow this procedure.
  • You will be required to pay a non-refundable application fee of $30.00.

Statement of Purpose

You will be required to submit your statement of purpose during the graduate admission application. Your statement of purpose should clearly explain why you want to pursue the Program, what you hope to gain by completing the program, and how you plan on using your degree. Please keep your response to no more than two pages typed in a standard word processor.

Letters of Recommendation

Submit two (2) letters of recommendation through the UF graduate admissions application.


Submit a resume directly to the program office. You can submit your resume via email (mse at

Official Transcripts

Contact your former universities and request them to send your official transcripts directly to the program office. All applicants with advanced degrees must provide transcripts from all graduate degree programs. (UF transcripts do not need to be sent.)

GMAT or GRE Exam

Arrange to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). All applicants must submit a test score no older than 5 years from the date taken.

  • Choose "University of Florida - Entrepreneurship Masters Program (code J7Z-5J-84)" when reporting GMAT scores.
  • Choose "University of Florida (Code 5812)" when reporting GRE scores.

Failure to use the codes above may delay the admissions process. Notify the program office when you have taken the exam. We can conditionally admit applicants based on an unofficial exam score.
