Admission to the University


Admission for International Students

International Applicant: The Office of Admissions 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 Admissions receives ALL required credentials. International applicants should supply the following:

  • All international applicants should apply online.

  • 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 (with writing test) 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 one academic year of study at a recognized/regionally accredited university or college in a country where English is the official language (excluding intensive English language programs) are not required to submit TOEFL scores.


  • Official transcripts and degree certificates, in the native language and with certified 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.

  • Complete a confidential financial statement.

When to Apply: International applicants should submit their admission applications and supporting materials well in advance of the published application 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 an admission decision.
