UF adopts Early Action for admissions starting Fall ‘24

The University of Florida will add Early Action to its admission process, by offering early admission decisions for prospective students, UF President Ben Sasse announced today.

By adopting the Early Action plan, potential first-year students who submit their applications by Nov. 1, 2024, and submit all required materials will be notified on Jan. 24, 2025, of their admissions status with UF. Unlike Early Decision, Early Action is non-binding for students.

“The University of Florida draws elite students, and this initiative is an important opportunity for our university and our students,” Sasse said. “Not only will it help UF attract the best minds, but it will also identify and reward students who are bold enough and determined enough to challenge themselves here in our rigorous academic environment.”

UF will implement Early Action in time for students aspiring to become first-time Gators during the fall 2025 semester. Prospective students can also apply by the regular admission deadline of Jan. 15, 2025, and submit all required materials by the materials deadline. They will be notified on March 14, 2025.

“Early Action will provide more certainty to selected students by notifying them of admission decisions earlier,” said Mary Parker, vice president for enrollment management at UF. “We appreciate how stressful it can be to plan for college. This plan will help reduce stress for aspiring Gators and their families; allowing more time to prepare for their time at UF – such as looking into housing and financial aid options.”
