University of Florida Promise Program

University of Florida Promise Program Website

What is UF Promise? It’s our promise to you.

UF Promise is a program aimed at first-year college students at the University of Florida. The program works in conjunction with the Office of Admissions, where students are chosen selectively upon entering their first year at UF. Through the admissions process, the university selects candidates for the program who will benefit from additional scholarly support and enrichment for success at UF. Through our program, we encourage these students to grow and meet their full potential beyond their freshman year.

How does it work?

Promise students must begin their first semester during the Summer B semester at UF. There, they are initiated into the Promise Learning & Involvement Community (PLIC), where other Promise students like them share the same residence area on campus. This opportunity made possible through UF Housing allows for peer networking, early college friendships, and lasting relationships among fellow Gators and UF Promise scholars.

Upon arriving at UF Campus, Promise students are invited to attend the OAS Connect Program. Our annual OAS Connect event lets incoming college freshman greet their fellow peers, discover campus resources, and meet their Promise Peer Coaches (PCs), all while becoming accustomed to a university setting for the first time.

What does it take to be a Promise scholar?

Promise scholars have access to exclusive resources such as academic advising through OAS, priority options for smaller class sizes during Summer B, and semesterly advanced registration and advising. They must also complete a mandatory First Year Florida course with sections dedicated specifically for Promise students. In addition to this, Promise students can also utilize other resources offered through OAS, including free tutoring, personal and professional workshops, and peer mentorship.
