Welcome to the UF Graduate School

Welcome to the website of the Graduate School at the University of Florida.

The reputation of a research university is, in large part, measured by the excellence of its graduate faculty and graduate students. The University of Florida’s graduate faculty and graduate students help to push the boundaries of research, develop the technologies of the future, improve the health of our citizenry, reshape our social and economic culture, expand scholarship, and create beauty in many forms.

This website is here to provide information and resources to those interested in graduate education programs at the University of Florida, but more critically, it serves to help both aspiring and admitted graduate students from their initial application through graduation. It also furnishes administrators, faculty, and staff with tools to help our graduate student body achieve those goals. Importantly, it stands as a point of contact where graduate alumni can keep up with the ongoing life of their alma mater and lend their support to new generations of graduate students following in their footsteps.

Thank you for visiting the UF Graduate School website. We invite you to join in the exploration that is graduate education and research at the University of Florida. If you have any questions after exploring our website, please contact our staff for answers: UF Graduate School Personnel.
