Students who are not admitted into the Freshman Honors Program, or miss the application or confirmation deadline, through the regular admissions process may still apply to the University Honors Program at the end of their first year by way of lateral admission. A minimum UF GPA of 3.5 during their first year at UF 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 their first year.
We will have more information about the lateral admissions process for 2016-2017 freshmen available in Spring 2017.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
