The Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) program accepts applications throughout the year for Fall and Spring admissions. The campus and online MURP program deliveries have the same application procedures and review standards, including materials, requirements, deadlines, and review process. All applications are reviewed holistically, on a rolling basis.
A departmental admissions committee comprising UF Planning faculty and staff reviews all applications. The admissions committee makes a recommendation and forwards it to the Office of Admissions for final processing. Upon final clearance from the Office of Admissions and the Graduate School, a decision letter is issued to the applicant via email. This process typically takes about 3 business weeks following submission of a complete application package.
Please note: Beginning with the Fall 2020 application cycle, the GRE is no longer a required component of the application. International students are still required to take the TOEFL or IELTS.
Please note: Employee Education Program (EEP) tuition-waiver benefits are only able to be utilized for the on-campus MURP program. The online MURP program cannot accept these benefits at this time.
