Lateral Admission

Students who are not admitted into the Honors Program, or miss the application or confirmation deadline, through the regular admissions process may still apply during their first fall semester of their freshman year by way of lateral admission. A minimum UF GPA of 3.5 during their first semester is required and will be verified prior to acceptance. Lateral admission is the absolute last chance for students to enter the Honors Program; we cannot accept any applications from students who have already moved beyond the first fall semester of their freshman year.
 
The lateral admissions process is very competitive and is not guaranteed for any student. For the Fall 2013 admissions cycle, we admitted 52% of our applicants for Spring 2014. Although a 3.5 GPA during the first semester is required, accepted students had an average GPA of 3.87. We do not consider high school activities, test scores, or GPA's as part of lateral admissions.


The deadline has now passed for first-year students admitted to the University of Florida for Summer B or Fall 2014 to participate in the lateral admissions process. Interested students were required to attend one of ten information sessions held during the month of September. Information sessions were advertised broadly across campus. There are no exceptions to this policy.

For students who attended an information session, the application will become available to you via Canvas on October 3 and will close at 5:00pm on November 3.


Please note there is not a lateral admissions process for students in the Innovation Academy or for transfer students.


If you have any other questions about the lateral admissions process, please e-mail Dr. Melissa Johnson at mjohnson@honors.ufl.edu
