Next Steps

Welcome to UF Law!  We look forward to seeing you at Orientation in August!  In the meantime, there are a few things you need to do to ensure your enrollment goes smoothly. Please read this information thoroughly as there are time-sensitive items included. Feel free to reach out to the contacts provided. 

New Student Orientation

Orientation is packed with important information to help you succeed at UF Law. The program is mandatory and will take place Tuesday, August 17th – Thursday, August 19th.  Details and registration information coming soon!

Pathways to Excellence Program

During orientation, you will learn about our annual “Pathways to Excellence” program – a year-long professional development series designed to prepare you for the profession and the practice of law. The one-time pathways programming fee of $195 is due by June 1, 2021. Click here to submit. This programming is not supported by University fees and is therefore not covered by scholarships or other awards. Please contact us at admissions@law.ufl.edu if you have any questions.

Clearing Holds

Before we can register you for Fall 2021 classes, all Holds on your student account must be cleared. Some holds may be associated with the checklist items below; others like the Registration Preparation hold are placed by the University and are easily cleared by reading/clicking through.  To clear your Holds:

  1. Go to ONE.UF
  2. Login with your Gatorlink Username and Password
    • If you haven’t set up your Gatorlink and UFL email, please contact the UFIT HelpDesk at (352) 392-4357, for assistance. You’ll need your UFID#.
  3. Under “Action Items”, click “Holds”
  4. Expand the drop-down
  5. Click on each hold and follow instructions to clear it

Registration holds are placed on your account by the University. If you have questions about your holds, or believe your holds should have been cleared already, please contact the UF Registrar directly at https://registrar.ufl.edu/contacts or (352) 392-1374.

CHECKLIST

If you haven’t already done so, you need to submit the following items as soon as possible.

Residency Declaration

ALL students, including students who are not Florida residents, must complete the Residency Declaration for tuition purposes, which can be accessed through your MyAdmissions portal. Important: If you claimed Florida residency on your LSAC application but have not submitted the Residency Declaration and/or supporting documentation required for the UF Graduate Admissions office (not UF Law) to make that determination, your tuition charge will be at the non-Florida resident rate. Graduate Admissions will communicate through the portal and/or email reminders if additional information is needed. Additionally, a request for “activities and locations” is not uncommon and can be easily satisfied through the portal. If you have questions about residency, please contact UF Graduate Admissions directly at residency@admissions.ufl.edu or (352) 392-1365, #3, #2.

Please note that the Levin College of Law does not have jurisdiction over residency matters. All decisions on residency are made by the University’s Graduate Admissions Office in accordance with Florida State Statute, 1009.21. 

Official Final Transcript

ALL students must submit an official final transcript to LSAC which could take up to two weeks to process. Your transcript must show the conferral date of a Bachelor’s degree. UF Law must have your transcript on file by July 01, 2021, so please don’t delay.

If you’ve already submitted a final transcript to LSAC and the transcript shows your degree conferral date, there is no need to resubmit.

If you happen to be graduating during the Summer 2021 term, please notify us immediately at admissions@law.ufl.edu – include *Summer 2021 graduation* in the subject line – and be sure to give us your university’s anticipated conferral date

Students may also provide graduate or professional school transcripts through LSAC, if applicable. These additional transcripts, while not required, will be added to your UF record should you provide them.

Health Insurance

All UF students must show proof of adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment. Students are required to purchase the University’s Student Health Insurance Plan unless you provide proof of comparable coverage. More information, including insurance coverage guidelines, frequently asked questions, and how to submit insurance information may be found at Health Insurance Requirement Overview.

Proof of Immunization  (required prior to registration)

The University of Florida requires that students show proof of immunization prior to registering for classes (in compliance with Florida statutes 1006.69, Florida Board of Governors Regulations Chapter 6 as well as recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices – CDC.) We therefore need you to complete the UF “Mandatory Immunization Health History Form” ASAP.  Please click here for the General Education Form and follow the instructions.

  • If you are a recent UF graduate, it is likely your immunization record is already on file; if necessary, you may confirm this with the Health Compliance Office.
  • If completing the Mandatory Immunization Health History form is not possible, an immunization record can be submitted from your previous university to the Health Compliance office (conditions apply). Click here for more information – see Basic Instructions.
  • To check the status of an immunization hold, please go to ONE.UF.
  • For other details, please visit http://healthcompliance.shcc.ufl.edu/.

COVID-19 InformationThe University of Florida requires students to fill out a Covid-19 Screening Questionnaire which is accessed through your ONE.UF account.  If you have received the Covid-19 vaccine, the Health Compliance office prefers that you submit a copy of your vaccination card through their secure uploadIf you have not received the vaccine, you will be required to participate in the return-to-campus Covid-19 testing and additional Covid-19 screenings.
