Admission for International Students

International Applicant: The Office of Admission classifies an applicant as an undergraduate if he or she has not earned a university degree equivalent to a U.S. bachelorís degree.

How to Apply: Applications cannot be considered until the Office of Admission receives ALL required credentials. International applicants should supply the following:

  • All international applicants should apply online. Those applicants who are unable to apply online can submit a PDF version.

  • Submit the nonrefundable $30 application fee (U.S. currency drawn on a U.S. bank); An application will not be considered without this fee.

  • Submit appropriate test scores.

    Freshmen or sophomores (less than two years of university course work) must submit official SAT or ACT scores.

    Junior-level transfers and postbaccalaureate students whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores in addition to other required test scores.

    Applicants whose native language is English or who have completed at least one academic year of university or college course work in a country where English is the official language (excluding intensive English language programs) are not required to submit TOEFL scores. They must submit satisfactory scores on an appropriate admissions test.

  • Official transcripts or certificates, in the native language and with official English translations, for all secondary and/or postsecondary course work attempted. All documents become the property of the university and cannot be returned or forwarded.

    Postbaccalaureate applicants must submit, in the native language and with official English translations, official transcripts and degree statements for all university-level work.

  • Complete a confidential financial statement.

When to Apply: Because of the time required to process an international application and the time needed to make visa and financial arrangements, application deadlines for international applicants are considerably earlier than published undergraduate deadlines.

In general, international applicants should submit their admission applications and supporting materials at least three months earlier than the published deadlines.

Please note:Under no circumstances should an applicant make plans to depart for Gainesville until the university has provided official admission notification. A student who comes to campus without confirmation of admission does so entirely at his or her own risk. Presence on campus will not influence the admission decision.
