Programs


Restrictions
Required courses may not be substituted, unless by other ABE or AOM courses (graduate or undergraduate) with approval of the Department's B.S./M.E. or B.S./M.S. Committee.

Implementation
A committee consisting of the Graduate Coordinator, ABE Undergraduate Coordinator, and the AOM Undergraduate Coordinator will process all applications. The application process will consist of a current transcript and a completed 4/1 application. The committee will make recommendations to the Graduate Committee. The number of graduate courses allowed to double count is limited to 12 hours.

Students must have official GRE scores and a completed online application to the UF Graduate School by the start of the semester in which they will earn their Bachelor of Science degree. However, it is recommended that students note admission deadlines for their intended graduate program and take the GRE prior to that date so the scores can be posted with their applications. Funding decisions for graduate programs happen early in the admission cycle and incomplete applications may not be considered.
