These application materials are evaluated holistically, using the guidelines established by the University, College of Education, and the School of Teaching and Learning. Admission decisions are rendered based on multiple sources of numerical and qualitative data presented in the application packet, as well as on the goals of Reading and Literacy Education and the expertise of its faculty. Applications are reviewed as soon as they are complete for Fall, Spring, or Summer admissions. Students matriculate in the semester closest to their official date of admission.
Note: Candidates interested in pursuing a Reading Endorsement need only submit a UF application form indicating post-baccalaureate admission. Please review the College of Education’s policy on post-baccalaureate admissions and enrollment below. No additional materials are required.
Post-baccalaureate students may enroll in graduate courses but the work taken will not normally be transferred to the graduate record if the student is subsequently admitted to the Graduate School. By petition, in clearly justified cases and in conformance with regulations on courses and credit, it is possible to transfer up to 15 semester hours of graduate course work earned with a grade of A, B+, or B.
For the College of Education, only students who have completed a baccalaureate program in the College may be admitted to post-baccalaureate status for the purpose of completing a teacher certification program. Other applicants may be admitted to post-baccalaureate status only for a limited time to fulfill prerequisites for admission to a master’s program or courses necessary for endorsements awarded by the Florida Department of Education.
