Students who have not yet graduated high school and those who have earned less than 12 hours of college credit after high school graduation apply as first-year students. The UF admissions process is designed to consider all aspects of an applicant's academic record and personal experiences in order to facilitate individual holistic consideration. The admissions review process tries to balance the subjective and objective components of the application. UF recognizes that there is great variation among applicants' personal circumstances.
