When do new students start in the Ph.D. program at UF?

New Ph.D. students start each fall and are required to be on-campus on August 16th each year. If this date falls on a weekend, the next Monday is the start date. We will have a small cohort of students that start in Spring 2021 due to issues with travel and visa acquisition. For international students concerned with visa issues, please email grad@che.ufl.edu and we will help you as best we can given the continued changing policies.
