Graduate School

People who stay on shore never make a splash.

A graduate degree from the University of West Florida can help you build a stronger résumé. Land a bigger promotion. Make more money. Refresh your career.


Coronavirus Updates

Beginning August 17, 2020, the Graduate School office in Building 11 will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. A face covering is required to enter the office and we will practice social distancing. 

While the office will be open with limited staff, remote work continues to be the primary work arrangement for faculty and staff. Please contact us via email at gradadmissions@uwf.edu

Please check your Application Checklist for outstanding requirements.

During this time, we ask all required admission documents be uploaded to your Application Checklist in MyUWF or emailed to gradadmissions@uwf.edu. If you mailed in a hard copy of any items, mail will be impacted during this time. For domestic applicants, you may submit an unofficial copy of transcripts, and we will be able to accept those for Provisional Admission, but an official copy of every transcript must be received prior to the first semester of enrollment.

GRE/GMAT/MAT scores are being waived by many colleges/programs for the coming terms due to COVID-19. You can check the Admission Requirements to see if you may qualify.

New UWF Application System!

UWF is excited to announce that we have launched our new application portal! The new application is more efficient and user-friendly. This system is not linked to our previous portal, so if you previously began a submission in our old system, you will have to create a new account for the new system. If you have any issues with the application, please contact us at gradadmissions@uwf.edu.
