How to Apply to the UF MBA Program

Congratulations on your decision to pursue an MBA. We look forward to reviewing your application. Below we have outlined all the steps in the application process. We have also listed a few tips to help you get through the process smoothly. However, if you do have any questions, feel free to contact a member of our admissions team.

Tip: UF MBA admissions operate on a rolling basis. The sooner you submit all of your application materials, the sooner you will get an answer.

Application Steps


  1. Know the application deadline and start date of your program.
  2. Review the application instructions and the admission FAQs.
  3. Apply online.

    Application requires:

    • Detailed Employment History
    • Academic History
    • Essays
  4. Submit the required supplemental application and $30.00 fee.

    Tip: Complete steps three and four as soon as possible. Completing these steps puts you on our radar screen. A completed application lets us know of your interest, and then we start communicating with you. We will send you reminders about the rest of the steps in the process and application deadlines, and we can keep you updated on any program news or changes.

Take the Test:

  1. Take the GMAT.

    Tip: As soon as you take the GMAT, fax your unofficial score sheet to the attention of the Admissions Team at (352) 392-8791. We can use your unofficial score sheet in the admissions process until we receive your official score from GMAC. This can help you get an admissions decision sooner.

    **For Working Professional programs only, UF MBA is now accepting the GRE. The GMAT is our preferred test and all full-time applicants are required to take GMAT. For information on using the GRE as your admissions test, email (floridamba at us.

Submit by Mail:

  1. Send us your résumé.

    Recommendations should come from professional sources, not friends, relatives, or former professors. Applicants can submit completed recommendation forms to the UF MBA Programs Office by mail. In addition, recommenders can submit completed recommendation forms by mail, fax or email directly to the UF MBA Programs Office. If the recommendation is being submitted by mail, the form should be placed in a sealed envelope with the back flap signed to ensure confidentiality.
