Transfer of Credit
Only graduate-level (5000-7999) work with a grade of B or better is eligible for transfer of credit. A maximum of 15 transfer credits are allowed. These can include no more than 9 credits from institutions approved by UF, with the balance obtained from post-baccalaureate work at the University of Florida. Credits transferred from other universities are applied toward the degree requirements, but grades earned are not computed in the students grade point average. Acceptance of transfer of credit requires approval of the students supervisory committee and the Dean of the Graduate School.
Petitions for transfer of credit for a masters degree must be made during the students first term of enrollment in the Graduate School.
The supervisory committee is responsible for using established criteria to ensure the academic integrity of coursework before accepting graduate transfer credits.
Please submit the Transfer of Credit Request by the end of your first semester.
All work (including transferred credit) counted toward the masters degree must be completed within 7 years before the degree is awarded.
Leave of absence:
Any student who will not register at UF for a period of more than one semester needs prior written approval from the Department Chair for a leave of absence for a designated period of time. This approval remains in the students departmental file. The Graduate School does not require notification. The student must reapply for admission upon return.
Prerequisites are based on the content and requirements of individual graduate courses and are listed accordingly in the Graduate Catalog.
Required Courses (21 credit hours):
Elective Courses ( 15 credit hours):
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
