Graduate Application Procedures

Students are only admitted into the M.S. and Ph.D. program for the fall semester. Students who would like to pursue a Ph.D. degree can apply directly for the Ph.D. program.  Prior enrollment into the M.S. program is not necessary.

We recommend that all application materials for those wanting to be considered for the Fall 2018 term be submitted no later than December 1, 2017.

If you are ready to apply you will need to use the UF online application system.  Once completed please let our department know that you have applied so we can ensure we have all required information.

For questions regarding admission to the program and to let our department know that you have applied, please contact Sarah Lacroix at

For questions about program content and structure, contact Dr. Rich Segal at or Dr. Almut Winterstein at

There are no provisions to waive or defer the $30.00 application fee. This fee must be paid directly to the Office of Admissions and be received before your application is processed.
