What are you waiting for? Get into UF!
Each year, hundreds of students transfer from Santa Fe College to the University of Florida. In fact, 60-70 percent of SF students who apply to UF are are accepted annually, more than all other Florida state colleges combined! Why are our students so successful? Perhaps it’s due to our small class sizes, rigorous academic environment, personal attention from advisors and faculty, access to UF advisors on our Northwest Campus, and opportunities for meaningful engagement in extracurricular activities.
As an SF student, you will be connected with UF in a way no other college can offer. Our longstanding ties and close proximity allow you to have a uniquely integrated UF experience from the very beginning of your college career.
