Keep in mind that UF EDGE does not process admission applications or make individual admission decisions. Any questions regarding application procedures should be addressed to your department.
A student can seek admission in 3 different ways:
If you wait until the deadline to start this process there could be delays in processing your application.
Non degree admission must be requested each semester. Only a limited number of credits taken in this status can be counted towards a master's degree. This number varies within each department. It is advisable to apply to graduate school during your first semester as a non degree seeking student. You should also check with your department to see what their policy is on transfer of credits from this status. It is your responsibility to make sure that your courses will transfer.
Make sure you have looked over our tuition & fees page so that you understand where you fit in our fee schedule as well as what opportunities might be available to you in terms of financial assistance. Also have a look at the student handbook and distance student services, which both summarize a majority of information found on our site.
The library has created several resources to help distance learning students. The UF Libraries' Distance Services website provides an introduction to the services offered to distance students, from borrowing print materials to accessing electronic resources. The Marston Science Library's homepage is a portal to engineering and science resources, where you can find the catalog, how to guides, and many links to help you if you get stuck. You can also find the engineering subject guide pages there.
Each subject guide contains resources selected by the librarian for that field. If you need help with an in-depth research question, the appropriate subject librarian can help; you can find their contact information on the right side of each subject guide page.
You might also find interlibrary loan useful.
