Application Process

UF Graduate Admissions determines eligibility and status for admission to the University of Florida. The Graduate School manages all the (electronic) paperwork, including your “official” transcripts. They also compute a standardized grade point average for your past work.

  • $30 application fee for first-time applicants
  • Application for admission
  • Official GMAT or GRE and TOEFL scores, if applicable (sent to code 5812)
  • Official transcripts

International students must submit credentials in the original language accompanied by an English translation and degree statement, if applicable. Plus:

  • Florida Residency Affidavit U.S. Citizens (and U.S. Resident Aliens) who seek to qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes
  • Conduct Declaration on the application
  • Declaration of Financial Responsibility (international applicants only)

If scores cannot be sent electronically, they should be addressed to:

UF Office of Admissions
PO Box 114000 (201 Criser Hall)
Gainesville, FL 32611-4000

Two points about transcript and test score copies:

  • We do not need official transcripts or original test score reports sent by the testing agency. Xerox copies or scans are fine.
  • We ask you to send us information so that we have a complete list of people who have applied, and so that we can see your transcript(s) before the Graduate School makes them available to us online. The Graduate School does some checking and computes standardized GPAs, which can cause delays when floods of applications arrive – e.g. around the due dates.
