Please begin the application process by filling out the pre-application form to indicate the program format and option to which you intend to apply.
Graduate School Application
After you have completed the pre-application you will submit the Graduate School Application online and pay the application fee.
Application Materials Checklist
Complete the graduate application and obtain your UFID before sending the remaining application materials. Please note that the College Net ID is not the same as your UFID, despite both being eight digits. All inquiries to the program will require the UFID. Find out how to obtain your UFID.
Please do not submit hard copies of these materials. It is important to provide complete and accurate information. Incomplete information will delay the processing of your application.
1.) Statement of Purpose
The essay should be completed as part of the online application. Please emphasize:
- Your motivation for applying to the program
- Why you think you are a good candidate for the program
- How the program fits into your future goals
Use the essay as an opportunity to highlight what you think we cannot assess from the other application materials. The ideal length for the essay is between 400-600 words.
Upload your resume to the online graduate application above.
“Pursuant to Florida Statute, your application requires inclusion of all post-high school education and employment, as well as information about ongoing international affiliations and research funding. Please ensure this information is included on your curriculum vitae (CV) or résumé.”
3.) Letters of Recommendation
A minimum of two recommendations from someone who has supervised the applicant (professor, employer, adviser, volunteer coordinators, etc.) are required. Recommendations from student/peer leaders will not be accepted.
Recommenders should submit letters directly to program in the following ways:
- Email ISOM (preferred)

4.) Official GMAT/GRE Test Scores for Graduate School Admission
The ISOM Department requires that applicants complete the quantitative and verbal sections of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) or the Educational Testing Service (GRE). We have no preference as to what test applicants choose to take. Test scores will be used as part of the holistic application review process. Test scores must be sent directly from the testing organization to UF. Use code: UF 5812
GMAT: A score between 550-620 is considered good. The minimum required score is a 465. We do not consider the writing or integrated reasoning sections. University of Florida students can obtain a GMAT discount code.
GRE: We consider a 300-310 a good score range. The minimum required for the Verbal section is 140. The minimum required overall score is a 295. We do not consider the writing section. UF’s Teaching Center and Writing Studio offer UF students
GRE preparation workshops and tutoring each semester.
NOTE: It can take up to six 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.
Only Exemption: Applicants with a previous graduate or professional degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution may be exempt from submitting the GMAT or GRE. No other exemptions are allowed.
5.) Official Transcripts & Diploma/Degree Certificate
Arrange to have official transcripts mailed from each postsecondary institution attended (not needed if only attended UF) and be sure to include your UFID on the sealed envelopes. Students applying from another state university in Florida should request from their Registrar’s Office that the transcript be sent electronically.
International applicants must mail an official copy in the native language of each transcript or mark sheet, along with official English translations for transcripts not originally issued in English. In addition, they must mail a final attested copy of the diploma/degree certificate from the registrar or comptroller of each university or college attended, along with official English translations for diplomas not originally issued in English.
We do not accept:
- Provisional degree certificates
- Emailed, faxed, photocopied or uploaded degree certificates and transcripts
- Degree certificates and transcripts notarized by a public notary
- Degree certificates and transcripts not in an envelope sealed by the academic institution
If you have questions regarding international transcripts, please send an email.
