Home   Graduate   Criminology, Law and Society Admissions


Admission to graduate study is competitive and is based on evaluation of the total record of the applicant: statement of purpose, career plans, letters of recommendation, and GPA and GRE scores. Applicants generally have an undergraduate major or MA in Criminology or a related discipline. Once admitted, all new graduate students are guaranteed funding.

The department determines your eligibility for the criminology graduate program and the UF Office of Admission at UF’s Graduate School determines your eligibility to the university. For an introduction to the UF Graduate School, facts and figures about what awaits you as a UF graduate student, instructions on how to apply and other useful information, please visit the UF Graduate School Admissions Brochure.

There are additional requirements for international students. If you are a non-US applicant, the UF International Center determines your eligibility for a student visa after you are admitted and on the basis of your reported preexisting funds.

The University of Florida permits students to enter graduate study at the beginning of any term. However, spring term admissions are unusual and entry in the fall term is very strongly preferred because it enhances students’ ability to take courses in the proper sequence.

The deadline for submission of all application materials for the subsequent fall semester is January 15.
