The Dean of Students Office creates a culture of care for students, their families, faculty and staff by providing exemplary programs and services to enhance students’ academic and personal success.  We are here to assist you with your pre-arrival planning both now and throughout your time at UF.

For questions about your visa paperwork or your immigration status, you should contact the University of Florida International Center (UFIC).  The UFIC’s department of International Student Services can assist you with the immigration process and will also be who you check-in with once you arrive in Gainesville.
