[Transfer Student]

For application information, transfer students should refer to the admission as a transfer section of the UF Undergraduate Catalog. Within space and fiscal limitations, applicants from other institutions who have satisfied minimum requirements will be considered for admission at the junior level.

Florida community college applicants to the College of Health & Human Performance (HHP) must complete an Associate of Arts degree and meet all university and college-specific requirements. Admission evaluation factors include academic record, cumulative grade point average, performance in prerequisite courses, extent to which the applicant exceeds minimum requirements, and achievements and career goals as stated in the letter of intent. The admission review process is a holistic review of the applicant’s overall record and potential in the chosen academic field. Students who complete prerequisite courses outside the state system (students who attend out-of-state, private and/or international institutions) must submit course descriptions to the department adviser.

Transfer admission is limited and extremely competitive. Priority will be given to applicants who have completed an AA degree from a Florida public community college, state college or university, per the State of Florida Articulation Agreement. HHP accepts a limited number of transfer students during Fall and Spring semesters only based on space and fiscal availability.

Transfer Admissions Requirements

To qualify (minimally) for admission to HHP, transfer applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • Completion of a minimum of 60 transferable credit hours (preference extended to students earning an AA degree from a Florida public community college, state college or university);
  • A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA (with the exception of Athletic Training which requires a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA);
  • Completion of the required prerequisite courses with a minimum prerequisite GPA. Note: Preference will be extended to students who have completed a majority of prerequisite courses at time of application.
  • Completion of the Letter of Intent application;
  • Prospective transfers from Florida public community colleges, state colleges or universities can refer to the Common Prerequisite Manual using the Florida Virtual Campus website.
  • For general transfer admission information, deadlines and application, please visit the UF Office of Admissions

Additional requirements per degree program:

Transfer Admission Process

  1. Submit the UF undergraduate admissions application. The application and fee must be submitted to UF Office of Admissions, along with transcripts from all colleges and universities attended.
  2. Submit the College of Health & Human Performance application materials. All materials must be received by the published transfer admission deadlines:
    • Letter of Intent (online form)
    • Résumé (Mail directly to the department you are applying to. Departmental addresses can be found on page 2 of the letter of intent application.)
  3. HHP will evaluate your admission application to determine whether you meet admissions requirements. Admission evaluation factors include academic record, cumulative GPA, performance in prerequisite coursework, extent to which the applicant exceeds minimum requirements, and achievements and career goals as stated by the student.
  4. The UF Office of Admissions will notify you of your admission decision in writing generally within eight weeks of the transfer application deadline.
  5. If admitted, you will receive a welcome letter from HHP outlining any conditions of your admission, as well as the next steps to take.

 

[Online Student]

Admissions requirements for online, degree-seeking students vary somewhat depending where you are in your academic journey. For general admissions information, visit UF Online. For detailed information about HHP online degree programs, click a link below:

B.S. in Health Education & Behavior

M.S. in Sport Management


 

[Post-Baccalaureate]

Following UF policy, HHP limits post-baccalaureate students to the following criteria:

  • Certificate program/state licensure
  • Teacher Certification
  • Prerequisites for graduate study
  • Distance Learning

In addition, any student wishing to apply under the “prerequisites for graduate study” will be required to apply to the department to which they plan to apply AND NOT the department that offers the course they wish to complete. For example: a student wishing to apply to the physical therapy graduate program, and who needs anatomy and physiology as prerequisites should apply to the College of Public Health and Health Professions as a post-baccalaureate.

Application info is available on the UF Admissions site


 

[Non-Degree Status]

Eligibility

  • Non-degree enrollment is restricted to participants in special programs, off-campus programs, university-affiliated exchange programs, participants with non-degree educational objectives at UF and high school/college dual enrollment.
  • Undergraduate students who have been denied admission to UF for any term or have a pending/referred application to UF are NOT eligible for non-degree registration.
  • Students who previously attended UF in a degree-seeking status who did not earn a bachelor’s degree are NOT eligible for non-degree registration.

HHP restricts non-degree registration to summer terms only. Non-degree status may be approved under the following conditions:

  • If you are a UF employee
  • If you are currently in good standing at another four-year institution

HHP Non-degree registration process:

  1. Complete the non-degree registration request
  2. Applications will be forwarded electronically to the College once eligibility has been determined by the Office of the University Registrar. Please allow a minimum of 5 business days for processing/approval at the college level.
  3. Applicants will be notified via email of a decision by the Office of the University Registrar.

 

[Fresh Start Program]

This program is for former degree-seeking students “who wish to return to the University after an absence of no fewer than five calendar years.” During this absence the student should have engaged predominately in nonacademic activities. Students wishing to apply under the Fresh Start Program should follow UF guidelines.

Students are also required to complete the College’s Letter of Intent.


 

[Readmission]

Readmission applies to students who have previously attended UF as degree seeking students and wish to return to complete their Bachelor’s degree. Former undergraduate students who do not enroll at the University for two consecutive terms, including any summer term, must apply for readmission. Readmission to the College of Health & Human Performance is NOT guaranteed. If you are considering readmission to the College, please review the readmission eligibility requirements below.

Readmission — Above a 2.0 UF GPA

If you left HHP on track for your major and are reapplying to the same major without having earned any additional credits at another institution, follow the readmission process outlined on the Admissions website. If a student is on track and in good standing before the absence of two or more terms, and reapplies to the same major, then readmission is generally granted.

Contact an HHP academic advisor before applying for readmission if any of the following apply:

  • If you have taken credits at another institution
  • If you plan to reapply for a different major within HHP
  • If you left UF with any incomplete grades
  • If you were off track in your major and wish to reapply to the same major.

Students readmitted to HHP who have been away from UF for longer than one calendar year will be readmitted under the catalog in effect at the time of readmission.

Readmission — Below a 2.0 UF GPA

Please contact an HHP academic advisor to discuss the likelihood of readmission to the major you desire prior to starting the readmission process. If there were any documented extenuating circumstances that affected your academic performance while at UF, you are encouraged to review the University Petition process in an effort to potentially improve your chances for readmission by reducing your deficit record.

If you left UF with 15 or fewer deficit points and have not taken additional coursework since you left UF, HHP will work with you on a case-by-case basis. However, be aware that taking classes elsewhere after leaving UF with a deficit record could jeopardize consideration for readmission since these grades do not count toward your UF gpa.

  • If you earn an AA degree from a Florida community college after leaving UF with a deficit record, you will not be eligible for readmission.
  • If you left UF with 15 or fewer deficit points (in your overall UF or upper division GPA) but were in your junior or senior year, your chances of readmission are reduced.
  • If you left UF more than 15 deficit points (in your overall UF or upper division GPA), please refer to the other “Readmission – Dismissed Students” section below.

For readmission process, review the Admissions website.

Readmission — Dismissed Students

Students who were dismissed from the University of Florida with more than 15 deficit points are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. The College of Health & Human Performance does not readmit students who have been dismissed and have subsequently earned an AA degree at another institution; or students who have been dismissed after having already been readmitted once. If you fall into any of the categories above, you will need to consider other academic options (at other institutions).

If you have greater than 15 deficit points, your application will be reviewed by an academic advisor. Upon review of your application, you may be contacted by the advisor to discuss your academic plan. Your advisor will develop a readmission contract that will specify GPA and course requirements. The contract will be reviewed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. If approved, you will be monitored every semester while on contract. Students must meet all contract conditions to be eligible to continue in HHP.

  • Students with more than 20 deficit points (overall or upper division) will not be readmitted
  • Students who are deficit must be able to realistically remove ALL deficit points within 2 semesters (summers included) (i.e. 20 credits with minimum grades of A is NOT realistic)
  • If applying to online programs, all general education and prerequisites must be completed (due to lack of online offerings)

 

[UF Employees]

The College of Health & Human Performance follows the University’s Employee Educational Program (EEP) policies. Full-time state employees who have been admitted to a degree or non-degree seeking status are eligible for a fee waiver of up to six (6) credit hours of UF courses per semester.
