Next Steps

Review your next steps in becoming a UWF graduate student

Make sure you have submitted all admission requirements

Visit your Application Status in your Application Portal to review your application checklist. Make sure all checklist items have been received. This includes graduate admission test scores, transcripts from all previously attended universities, and departmental admission requirements such as letter of intent and letters of recommendation.

Make sure you have submitted your final transcripts

An official transcript reflecting the date of your graduation must be received by Graduate Admissions before you enroll at the University. Review your application checklist and make sure your degree-granting institution's transcripts have been received and the Status is "final."

Make sure your residency status is correct

Check your offer letter or visit your Application Portal to make sure your residency status is listed correctly. If it is incorrect, submit all required residency documentation to Graduate Admissions.  Once Graduate Admissions receives the residency affidavit, it will be reviewed. Please allow 2-3 business days for the form to be reviewed. If additional residency documentation is needed to support your residency claim then you will be notified accordingly. If you have questions please contact

All students taking face-to-face courses are required to show proof of having their MMR, Hepatitis B, and Meningitis immunizations.

If you are not taking any face-to-face courses at a UWF campus or location, visit the Immunization Waivers and Exceptions page. If you are enrolled in a face-to-face course, you will be required to submit the immunization documentation through Med+Proctor.

Confirm your intent to enroll

You must confirm your admission through your Application Portal prior to registering for classes.
