Make CALS part of your path to success.

Applying to UF’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences will provide you with incredible opportunities to further your education. As one of two land-grant institutions in Florida, UF has several majors in CALS that are only available at our university and statewide locations.

The college has a tradition of working closely with community and state college students to ensure a smooth transfer to the University of Florida. Transfer applicants must meet the transfer admissions criteria for their chosen major. Refer to the guide below for individual major criteria, as well as university-wide admissions requirements, deadlines, and application.

The college requires all applicants meet the following requirements before transferring:

  • Obtain an Associate of Arts degree (or 60 transferrable credit hours for students transferring from private, four-year institutions or institutions outside of Florida),
  • Meet the foreign language requirement of the University of Florida: two years of high school foreign language courses or two semesters of college-level foreign language courses (courses must be consecutive),
  • Have at least a 2.0 GPA at all higher education institutions attended; meet the GPA required for the major, and complete specific prerequisite courses.
