Also required is a nonrefundable $30 processing fee payable to the University of West Florida, which should be submitted six to nine months prior to the semester for which admission is requested. It is the policy of the University not to defer or waive the application processing fee. The application processing fee must be in U.S. currency, drawn on a U.S. bank. There is an option to pay via MasterCard, Visa, or American Express credit card when the web application is submitted. The Graduate School will not process any application materials until notification has been received from the Cashier's office of receipt of payment.
For counseling program applicants an interview is required. Applicants who meet initial selection criteria will be invited for an interview. Interviews will be held on the afternoon of Friday February ---- (1 pm) and the morning of February --- in the School of Psychological and Behavioral Sciences Building (Building 41, Room 115) on the UWF campus. This offers the opportunity for us to meet applicants, and provides applicants a better perspective on the faculty, facilities, and local resources. If geographic distance is an obstacle, we can arrange for a phone interview, but you are strongly encouraged to attend. Please let our Recruitment/Retention Graduate Counselors know which date you prefer in preparation for an interview. Just keep in mind we will contact you in early February to notify you if you have been selected for an interview, and to confirm your date selection.
