How the Application Process Works

Two or three UF units evaluate your graduate admission application:
• The UF Office of Admission, which determines your eligibility for admission to the university.
• The department you want to major in, which determines your eligibility for its graduate program.
• If you are a non-US applicant, the UF International Center, which determines your eligibility for a student visa after you are admitted, on the basis of your reported preexisting funds.

Please note: The UF Graduate School is not involved in this process. Contact the department you are applying to if you have questions about your application.
