UF tops applications record

The number of applications to the University of Florida saw the one-year largest increase ever as nearly 41,000 prospective students threw their hats in the ring to be admitted for the summer and fall semester of 2018.

The total number of applications – 40,849 -- represents a nearly 18 percent increase over the previous year’s total of 34,112. Part of the increase is due to UF now using the Coalition for Access, Affordability and Success application, which, among other things, allows students to apply to multiple colleges and universities simultaneously.

Part also may be a result of increased awareness that UF last year rose into the top 10 U.S. News & World Report Best Public Universities ranking.
