Step 4: Test Scores

The English Language Skill Requirement

If your native language is not English, or if you graduated with a bachelor’s degree from a non-English speaking country, you will need to take and submit your Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score or other English language skills test scores approved by the Graduate Council.

Non-English-speaking countries are those which are not included in the Graduate School’s list of countries exempt from English proficiency testing.

Having the TOEFL or English Language Test sent to the University of Florida

All applicants must have Educational Testing Service (ETS) send their official TOEFL test scores directly to the UF Office of Admissions at code 5812. No department code should be selected.

  • Only official, sealed scores, direct from ETS, are acceptable. Self-reported scores, unsealed copies of score reports or photocopies of score reports cannot be accepted as official final documents.
