Application Checklist

Graduate Admissions Application Checklist

ALL APPLICANTS

Please note that students are only admitted into the MS and Ph.D. programs for the fall semester. The department generally does not admit students for spring semesters.

We recommend that all application materials for those wanting to be considered for the Fall 2020 term be submitted no later than Dec.1, 2019.

 

To be sent to UF Office of Admissions:

_____  Completed application form and application fee of $30.00 (U.S. currency; check or money order)

_____  Official transcripts sent directly from your university to the UF Office of Admissions

_____ GRE scores

  • GRE scores are required for all applicants; no exceptions.
  • Official test scores must be reported to UF directly by the Educational Testing Service.  If you do not specify the University of Florida as a recipient when you took the test, then you must contact the Educational Testing Service to request that your scores [test score code 5812] be sent to the university. If the scores are not available in the UF system by Dec. 1, 2019, please email unofficial score reports to Dr. Joshua Brown. Note that you cannot be admitted to the program until your official score is sent and received by the Office of Admissions.  
  • Copies of score reports via mail are useful to the department for informal evaluation, and it is a highly recommended (not required) addition to your packet. However, you cannot be admitted to the program or the university until your official score is sent and received by UF Office of Admissions.
