Tuition and fees are assessed on the basis of residency; enrolling students are classified either as “Florida” or “non-Florida” students.
The tuition rates are posted online.
7.2 Types of Financial Aid
A limited number of graduate assistantships and fellowships are available to qualified students. Continuation of the award is based on the student’s satisfactory performance in both academic and assigned duties. Graduate students who wish to apply for assistantships should write to the chairperson of the department in which they plan to enroll.
Graduate Fee Waivers
The State of Florida funds a limited number of graduate matriculation fee waivers for graduate students who are on either graduate assisantships or fellowships. These waivers can be used to offset a portion of a graduate student’s in-state tuition. A student must be a fully admitted graduate student to qualify under this program. Because each college administers this program using different requirements, students are encouraged to contact their college as early as possible to determine their eligibility.
Out-of-State Tuition Reductions
Out-of-State tuition may be waived for certain full- and part-time enrolled non-residents who have skills or abilities which will contribute to the academic environment of the University. UNF attracts a great majority of its students from Northeast Florida. Awards are based on the availability of funds.
Latin American Caribbean (LAC) Scholarship
Students from Latin America and the Caribbean (including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands) are eligible to receive Latin American/Caribbean (LAC) Scholarships at UNF. In order to qualify, they must be admissible to UNF under existing criteria for undergraduate or graduate programs and meet other standards. On the basis of the LAC Scholarship, the student will be classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes. Information on the guidelines and the scholarship application can be found here
The Auzenne Fellowship is a yearly award given out on a merit basis - based on a combination of GPA and GRE/GMAT test scores - which funds students for full-time study during the Fall and Spring semesters. This program is designed to assist Florida’s State Universities in increasing the enrollment of minority students (African American, Hispanic, Asian/Pacific Islander, American Indian/Alaskan Native) who are enrolled in disciplines in which there is under-representation of the minority group at the graduate level at the University of North Florida. Awards are continued for up to two years for students in Masters and Professional programs, and up to four years for Doctoral students.
Funding for scholarships for graduate students is received by the individual colleges as part of their annual budget request and subsequent allocation. Individual college deans allocate shares of those resources to individual departments as well as determine how those resources may be distributed to students.
