Who Should Apply to FHP

Any incoming freshman who has been accepted into the University of Florida may apply for the Freshman Honors Program (exception: PaCE/UFOnline). There is no longer an invitation vs. petition process for Honors admission. There is one application that is open to all students. 

We have provided several tips to help you with your application. You will note that our essays in particular are a little bit...different. We are looking for students who can think critically and creatively, and our essays are designed to provoke such thinking. Do not underestimate them, as they carry a great deal of weight in our review process. They will be read by current Honors students, so keep your audience in mind.

For the 2017 incoming class, we accepted 43% of all applicants (1110/2550). You can learn more about our 2017 class, as well as the factors we consider during our admissions review here.
