General information is discussed throughout our website. If you have submitted an application and have additional questions, reach out to the UF Online OneStop by phone at 352-294-3290 or by email at admissions@ufonline.ufl.edu.


Does UF Online have an application fee, and if so, how much is the application fee?

Each application requires a $37 total charge of which $30 is the non-refundable application fee and $7 is a processing fee. The payment must be made online during the application submission process.

Please be aware that each application must have an individual fee, which is valid for one decision for UF Online. If you would like to be considered for a second program then you will need to reapply for the next term and pay another application fee.


I’m having trouble accessing the Gator Link Username and my UFID. Could you help me access the website so I can see what I still need to send?

Your application summary is the best place to obtain your UFID number, which you need in order to log in and check your status. To access your application summary you will have to have your temporary username and password from when you created your application. Once you have retrieved your UFID number, you will be able visit the Check Your Status page. If you are missing this information, please contact the UF Online OneStop by calling 352-294-3290.


I have submitted my application but would like to change my major, how would I do that?

If you would like to change your major, please contact the UF Online OneStop at 352-294-3290 or by email at uf-onestop@ufl.edu.


Can I change the term I applied for?

You can change your term depending on where you are in the application process and you may change your term for up to a year after you submit your application. If you have already been considered for an admission’s decision then you will either need to reapply for a different term or submit a deferral form if you have been admitted.

Please be aware that not every UF Online major is offered every term. For instance, Nursing is only offered during the Spring term.


What do I need to send you to be considered for an admission’s decision?

Once you have submitted your application, we will review it within 48 hours, if we need any additional information from you, you will be notified by a status update at www.admissions.ufl.edu and via email. Once we have a complete academic history (high school transcripts, college transcripts, and test scores) as well as all other information that we have requested, we will review you for a decision.


How will I know when I get an admission’s decision?

After you have been reviewed by our admission’s committee, your status will update at www.admissions.ufl.edu and you will receive a letter in the mail.


Where do I send my transcripts?

You’ll want to send or forward your official transcripts in a sealed envelope to the University of Florida’s Office of Admissions at:

Office of Admissions
201 Criser Hall –PO BOX 114000
Gainesville, FL 32611-4000

If you are ordering your transcripts by PDF please be aware that we only accept PDF transcripts from Parchment, National Clearing House, and eScript. Our email address for receipt of these transcripts is transfer@admissions.ufl.edu; Please ATTN these transcripts for the UF Online OneStop.


I reviewed my application, and one of the items missing is “All Time Accounted For”. What is the best way to send this information to the University?

You will want to submit your activities and locations to the admissions@ufonline.ufl.edu. We are looking for a brief summary consisting only of several sentences stating where you were during that time frame and if you were working, who you were working for. If you were not working, let us know what activity you were doing during that time frame instead such as going to school, raising a family, traveling, and/or unemployed. A resume will suffice if the allotted times are covered.


I currently have courses in progress or plan on taking additional courses now that I have submitted my application. How do I update my application to reflect this information?

If you have not already indicated these courses before you submitted your application. You will want to email the UF Online Onestop at uf-onestop@ufl.edu with which courses (including the course codes) that you are now taking as well as where you are taking these courses. If applicable please send us a transcript with these courses “in progress” on it.


Do I need to send you my high school transcript?

We will need your high school transcript if you are applying with less than 60 transferable college credits (or 90 quarter hours). These credits include test scores from AP, IB, AICE, and CLEP. If you have 60 transferable credits (or 90 quarter hours) then we will not need your high school transcript to review you for a decision. We may still need your high school transcript to resolve your foreign language condition if you have not, as of yet, completed two semesters of foreign language in college.

If you have a bachelor’s degree at an accredited school, we will not need your high school transcript.
