RE:     August 28: Wrapping UF Fall 2014 Admissions

Except for off-book programs with later start dates operating on a calendar other than the standard academic calendar, the Graduate School will process applications requiring conditional admission or special exception only through the drop-add period of the applicant's desired term of admission, since both students' schedules and faculty members' class rosters ought to be finalized once the system shuts down enrollment.

If your program is on the standard academic calendar, and you have any unresolved Fall 2014 graduate applications requiring Graduate School approval, please wrap them up by August 28, 2014, so your new students will still have time to enroll on August 29, 2014, the last day of Fall 2014 late registration and drop/add.

If you are admitting Fall 2014 students to an off-book program with a later start date on a different calendar, please kindly indicate the start date in any e-mails or E-Referral comments as you forward these cases to Graduate School for final approval, if it is needed.

As always, no acceptance letter is to go out to any applicant until his/her E-Referral screen says "Admitted" under "Status."

If you have any questions, please e-mail Program Assistant Gregory Orloff at [log in to unmask]

Thanks much! May the start of the new academic year go smoothly and successfully for all of you.
