Minor/Technical Revision of Existing Regulation
Reaffirmation of Existing Regulation
I. OBJECTIVE & PURPOSE This regulation applies to the admissions of all transfer students to the Unviersity of North Florida. The basis for this regulation can be found in the Florida Board of Governors BOG 6.004 Transfer Students - Undergraduate, which governs decisions regarding admission of all undergraduate, degree seeking transfer students to UNF and the satisfaction of general education requirements. All University policies and procedures that result in a less stringent application of the requirements shall be superseded.
II. STATEMENT OF REGULATION
Likewise, student may demonstrate equivalent foreign language competence in Latin by means of a minimum scores of 443 on the Latin examination published under the title of MAPS by the College Board, which represents the 1985 national mean of college bound seniors minus one(1) standard deviation. Additionally, student may be exempted by demonstrating mastery of a foreign language in conjunction with processes established by the University of North Florida's World Languages department. Transfer students are exempt from this admissions requirement if they received an Associate in Arts degree prior to September 1, 1989, or if prior to August 1, 1989, they enrolled in a program of studies leading to an Associate degree from a Florida community college and maintain continuous enrollment until they are admitted to the University of North Florida. Continuous enrollment will be established if the student enrolls at least one term each twelve month period beginning with the student's first enrollment in a community college and continuing until the student enrolls at the University of North Florida. Additionally, the University of North Florida may admit a limited number of freshmen and transfer students who have not met the above foreign language requirement if there is evidence that the applicant will be successful in completing their academic work. The number of such applicants enrolled at the University System shall not exceed 5% of the total number of freshmen enrolled in the State University System in the prior academic year. All transfer students admitted to the University of North Florida without meeting the foreign language admissions requirement must satisfy the foreign language requirement prior to graduation from the University of North Florida.
