Admission to Postbaccalaureate Study

Postbaccalaureate study is for students who already have received a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution. The university has only limited space for students wishing to pursue postbaccalaureate studies. Applicants should contact the college or department in which they are interested to ensure that their goals can be accommodated.

When to Apply: Applications may be submitted up to one year in advance and applicants are urged to apply as early as possible. Applications must be submitted by the deadline for the term. Some departments have deadlines for the receipt of applications and supporting records that are earlier than the general deadlines for the university. All applicants are advised to refer to the university calendar published in this catalog and to verify department deadlines with the appropriate department.

Application for admission as a postbaccalaureate student must be made to Office of Admissions, Box 2946, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, 32602-2946, on forms supplied by that office. Applications meeting minimum requirements are referred to the department for the admission decision. Application will not be considered unless complete official transcript(s) of all the applicant’s previous collegiate work are in the possession of the Office of Admissions. No transcript will be official unless it is received directly from the registrar of the institution at which the work was performed. Official supplementary transcript(s) are required, as soon as they are available, for any work completed after the application was filed.

Minimum Requirements for Admission Consideration:

  • A recognized baccalaureate degree (or higher) from a regionally accredited college or university.
  • A minimum grade point average of C (2.0) on all junior and senior year undergraduate work, as computed by UF.
  • A minimum score of 550 (or 213 on computer-based test) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), if English is not your native language.
  • A satisfactory conduct record; major or continuing difficulty with school or other officials may make an applicant ineligible, regardless of academic qualifications.
  • Proof of immunization for measles and rubella or a tuberculosis skin test is required before registering for course work.
