Admissions Criteria

To be eligible to apply to the Freshman Honors Program, students must apply to the University of Florida by November 1. Please note that transfer, PaCE, and UFOnline students are not eligible for admission to the Honors Program


2015 Entering Honors Freshman Profile - Middle 50% Range:

GPA: 4.4-4.6
SAT: 2050-2180
ACT: 30-33


Factors Considered in the Freshman Honors Application:

About GPA / Test Scores:

GPA: When computing a student's high school GPA, the university only counts academic classes and adds extra weight to the most challenging courses: (1) an extra one-half grade point for all high school honors courses; (2) an extra full grade point for all AP, AICE, IB and Dual Enrollment courses. For questions regarding UF's GPA computation, please contact the Office of Admissions at (352) 392-1365.

Test Scores: Students who have taken the SAT multiple times may use their highest subscores from any test administration of the new SAT. 

American College Test (ACT) - This score must be earned all in one sitting; the university cannot mix or combine any ACT subscores. The University of Florida Office of Admissions requires the optional writing section.

The Honors Program will only consider scores from the December 2015 test dates or earlier. 


Deadlines:

Students must complete their online Honors application by March 1 at 11:59pm EST

All applicants will be notified of admission status no later than April 1 via their UF email account. We are not able to release notifications via non-UF email addresses or over the phone. We recommend setting up your UF email account before this date so you can access the decision quickly.

Accepted students must postmark their confirmation to participate in the program no later than May 1. This confirmation is separate from the UF confirmation / tuition deposit. Students who do not confirm their participation will forfeit their spot in the program.
