Notice of Admission
When an application for admission is approved, the university will send an official notice. Admission is for a specific term. If a student is unable to enroll for the term indicated, the Office of Admissions should be informed immediately. If the student wishes to be considered for entrance to a different term, the Office of Admissions must be advised.
Under no circumstances should an applicant make plans to depart for Gainesville until the university has provided official notification. A student who comes to campus without a notice of admission does so entirely at his or her own risk. The studentís presence on campus will not influence the decision for admission.
