The Plant Breeding Graduate Program currently offers the Doctor of Philosophy degree in Plant Breeding. We welcome those that meet our requirements to apply for our program. To be considered by the program and eventually secure a faculty advisor match, the first step is to submit a complete application (details below) by our application deadlines. The deadline for Fall 2023 admissions is January 15, 2023. We also recommend applicants to review our plant breeding faculty and their areas of research. While applicants are strongly encouraged to contact faculty members in their areas of interest regarding potential openings, securing faculty support is not strictly a requirement to apply and be considered by the program. The program will eventually match your interests with a potential faculty.
All applicants must meet the admission requirements of both the academic unit (Plant Breeding Graduate Program-PBGP) and the Graduate School as specified in the Graduate Catalog. Admission is a multi-step process that involves multiple UF offices including the UF Office of Admissions, and as applicable, the UF International Center.
- GRE scores are not required to apply for the Ph.D. degree in Plant Breeding.
- Only complete application packets received by the deadlines will be considered.
