How to Apply

All students must apply to the College to be admitted to or continue in the College at the junior level. Even if you are a UF or a Public Health and Health Professions sophomore, you must apply and be accepted by the College to continue in Public Health and Health Professions as a junior. The application process is different depending upon whether you are a current UF student. Select the category below that applies to you and follow the instructions.

IF YOU ARE NOT A UF STUDENT: Application to the University of Florida and a specific Bachelor of Health Science application are required..  If you are not a UF student, you must apply to both the University and to the College of Public Health and Health Professions.  In order to apply to the University, you must complete a University application.

Admission Considerations: Admission to the University does not guarantee admission to our College because our academic programs are “limited access.” Limited access means that we admit only a limited number of students each year to ensure our students get the best clinical training possible. Students receiving their AA degree from a Florida Community College are given equal consideration with University of Florida students. However, all students must have all requirements completed, including an AA degree, by the end of Summer A term for both Summer and Fall admission.
