Next Steps

You did it! You just took the first step towards becoming a Florida Gator by submitting your UF Online application and application fee. Sometimes the first step can feel like a giant leap, so we’re here cheering you on.


The final step in the admissions process is to request all of your
official documents to be sent to the University of Florida as soon
as possible.

  • Contact your school or testing agency to see if they can send
    your documents electronically. This is the fastest delivery method. We accept electronic transcripts from Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, and eScrip-Safe.
  • You should select the University of Florida
    as the recipient during the ordering process.
  • When you order these documents, save any records you receive
    for future reference.

If you cannot send electronic transcripts or test scores, send physical copies to:

University of Florida Office of Admissions
201 Criser Hall
PO Box 114000
Gainesville, FL 32611-4000

Below is a breakdown of the documents required to review your admissions file.
