Graduate School

People who stay on shore never make a splash.

A graduate degree from the University of West Florida can help you build a stronger résumé. Land a bigger promotion. Make more money. Refresh your career. And, ultimately, make a mighty splash.

Coronavirus Updates

*UWF has extended remote instruction and business operations through the remainder of the spring 2020 semester (11:59 PM May 5, 2020). Please contact us via email at During this time, we ask all required admission documents be uploaded to your Applications Status in MyUWF or emailed to If you mailed in a hard copy of any items, mail will be impacted during this time. For domestic applicants, please email in an unofficial copy of transcripts, and we will be able to accept those for Provisional Admission until mail resumes. Once we resume business on campus, those who turned in an unofficial copy, must submit the official copy at that time.

With this change, the traditional in-person Spring 2020 commencement will not be held in May 2020. We understand this is very disappointing to our seniors and graduate students and we are working with student leaders to discuss creative ideas to ensure our students are celebrated. We plan to honor our students while still keeping our community safe. More details will be provided as soon as possible.*
