Admissions Criteria

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

GPA: A weighted GPA of at least 4.0 as computed by the university's Office of Admissions. 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: All students must achieve our minimum score for either the SAT or ACT (but not necessarily both) as described below: SAT Reasoning Test - A combined score of 2070 on the math, critical reading and writing sections. Students who have taken the SAT multiple times may use their highest subscores from any test administration of the new SAT to meet this requirement.

American College Test (ACT) - A composite score of 33. 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 2013 test dates or earlier. If you are admitted to UF and the Office of Admissions determines that you meet these minimum criteria, you will receive an email on the Monday following the announcement of admissions decisions encouraging you to apply for the Honors Program.

Students who are invited must complete their online Honors application by March 1 at 11:59pm EST. All applicants will be notified of their admission/denial into the Honors Program by e-mail. 

Petition: We realize that there are many exceptional students who would benefit from and contribute to the Honors Program who do not meet the minimum SAT/ACT score and GPA requirements. Such students may still apply to the Honors Program through our petition process. The application is the same as the regular Honors application except that students seeking admission via this route must submit an additional essay. This essay, together with the remainder of the application, will form the basis for admissions decisions.

Petition applicants will log into the same online Honors application and have the same deadline of March 1 at 11:59pm EST.
