Application materials required by UF Graduate School include: 

  • A bachelor’s degree is required for applicants (students are eligible to apply before their degree is awarded.

The final admission confirmation will depend on the degree being awarded).
  • Ensure the transcript displays a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher (minimum requirement). If the applicant graduated from a non-US college, it is necessary to translate the transcript and convert it into the US grading system.
