TESTS

Regardless of current enrollment, all applicants must submit GRE scores (international students must also submit TOEFL scores) directly from ETS to the University of Florida.

The advanced test is not required. The TOEFL exam is required of applicants from countries where English is not the primary language. International students are exempt from the English proficiency requirement if you are from one of the countries listed here: http://www.admissions.ufl.edu/apply/international/countries.html.

The minimum acceptable TOEFL is 80, with a speak score of 23 or greater. International Applicants currently enrolled in graduate programs within the United States must still submit GRE and TOEL scores.

RESEARCH STATEMENT

Please include a brief research summary describing any research endeavors that you have been involved with to date.

PERSONAL STATEMENT

Please include a statement that describes things that you would like the admissions committee to know about you. Examples include motivations for attending graduate school, what type of chemistry you’re are interested in pursuing during your graduate career, if there are particular faculty members that you would like to work with, your career goals, etc.

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION

Three letters of recommendation are required to be submitted through the online application system.

ACCEPTANCE

Students are accepted by the Graduate Selections Committee. Decisions are made as rapidly as possible. However, the review process can take up to 8-10 weeks. Heavy weight is placed on the strength of the recommendations and meaningful research experience. All accepted students who continue in good standing receive funding for at least five years. Fellowships are awarded based on the strength of the application. Most fellowships are awarded subsequent to a visit to the Department.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

International applicants are required to submit original language transcripts and diplomas along with an English translation.
