Tuition fees are subject to change between academic years. Refer to the University Bursar website for the most updated tuition fees.
A limited number of partial merit scholarships ($2000-$5000) are awarded each year. Some scholarships are awarded through the admission process (no application necessary). Other scholarships require an application (more details coming soon).
We do not use Master’s level students to teach in our College, therefore we do not offer teaching assistantships or fellowships.
Florida Bright Futures recipients who graduated with their Bachelor’s degree in 7 semesters/105 credits or less may be eligible to apply remaining Bright Futures funding to the first semester of a graduate program. Contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information.
Florida Pre-Paid students, before cashing out a pre-paid account, contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information about using remaining pre-paid funds for graduate tuition.
Federal Student Aid and Loans
Most students (U.S. Citizens/U.S. Residents) are eligible to receive federal loans. To apply for federal loans, you must complete the Federal Student Aid FAFSA Application.

Academic Common Market
Are you a resident of one of these states?
The Academic Common Market enables students in the Southeast to pursue the Master of International Business (MIB) degree at the University of Florida at In-State tuition rates. This program, created by the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB), allows students from 16 Southern states to “study in a specialized field at an out-of-state college, while paying in-state tuition.” The MIB program is currently approved to offer tuition reciprocity to state residents of Alabama and Kentucky. Students from other SREB member states should contact the MIB program for more details about MIB tuition reciprocity in their state.
I searched all over the Southeast for a program that met my needs and the MA-International Business program at the University of Florida was a perfect fit. I was able to enroll in the MAIB program with Alabama in-state tuition rates through the Academic Common Market. There is no way I would have been able to afford to attend UF and become a Gator without the Academic Common Market. I am now a manager at the Alabama Power Company and use the skills I learned in the MAIB program every day.

No federal or state loan or grant programs exist for international students. International students must be able to pay the cost of tuition and living expenses. Please refer to the UF International Center website for information regarding financial aid, tuition waivers, campus employment, etc.
