Studying at the University of Florida as an exchange student is an exciting and wonderful opportunity. UF is proud of its partnerships with schools abroad. More than a hundred partnerships allow international students to study at UF in a wide variety of academic disciplines. 

Nominations require partners to include the following for each student individually. Step-by-step instructions can be found in the Nomination Guide.

  • Partner institution name
  • Partner institution contact
  • Student biographical information (name, date of birth gender)
  • Student contact information (email)
  • Student degree level/academic level
  • Student field of study
  • Verification of English Proficency



The Exchange Coordinator will approve the nomination, thereby initiating the online application for the incoming student. Students will receive temporary log-in credentials to access the application platform and be prompted to create their own log-in.

Nomination Deadlines
Fall semester April 1
Spring semester September 1
* Partner schools can expect nominations to be confirmed within a week of a nomination submission.

Note: UFIC is able to initiate incoming exchange student applications where the current agreement is pending renewal. However, UFIC will not issue formal acceptances or immigration documents for students until a fully executed agreement is in place. This policy is in line with federal immigration regulations governing the Exchange Visitor Program. The UFIC Executive Director facilitates the renewal process for exchange agreements with the Partner Institution and UF Academic Department/College.

UF Transcripts upon program completion

Once students complete the the exchange program at UF and the deadline for UF instructors to submit final grades has passed, UFIC will request transcripts from the Registrar’s Office. UFIC will provide digital copies to all participating partner schools as a standard policy. Hard copies of transcripts will be mailed to partner schools as requested. This process can take anywhere from 2 - 6 weeks after the academic semester has ended.
