A student who wishes to enter a degree program at the University of West Florida, but does not have the required English language proficiency, may be conditionally admitted to the University.
To be eligible for conditional admission, a student must meet all other international admission requirements and be admitted to the Intensive English Program.
A student will submit two admission applications:
If admissible to the degree program, the Admission Office will grant conditional admission to the international student without the required proof of English proficiency.
The admission letter will state that the student is accepted for admission to UWF pending completion of the Intensive English Program and demonstrating English proficiency.
After the student completes the advanced level in the Intensive English Program with a minimum of 88 in all coursework and receives a minimum score of 78 on the exit test, the student will be officially admitted to UWF in an undergraduate degree program.
Upon admission, a student wishing to apply for the F-1 student visa will be issued the Form I-20 for study at the University of West Florida, with the remark that the student will first receive intensive English language training to achieve the required language proficiency.
Students seeking admission to graduate school should contact the Office of Graduate Studies for information.
