The University of North Florida offers a large and diverse array of graduate degrees. This step-by-step guide will help you complete the application for admission. We strongly encourage you to contact the Graduate Program Director of the degree program in which you are interested. Feel free to do so at any time during and even before you begin the application process.
Applicants who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States should check the international requirements page on our website.
We cannot refer your application for review until all materials have been received.
Please read below for more detailed instructions.
Responsibility of the Student to Stay Informed
It is the student's responsibility to keep informed of all rules, regulations, and procedures required for graduate studies. Graduate program regulations will not be waived or exceptions granted because students plead ignorance of the regulations or claim failure of the adviser to keep them informed.
The application deadline represents the date when the application, transcripts, test scores, and all supplemental materials must be received by the Graduate School.
An application can be deferred only one time. If you wish to defer the application again, you will have to submit a new application and $30 application fee for consideration into another term.
Applicants must complete an online application whether degree-seeking or post-baccalaureate (non degree-seeking). Our online application is quick, secure and convenient. The non-refundable application fee is $30.00 for all applicants, including former UNF students. If you applied online and were unable to pay the application fee, you may send a check or money order made out to UNF for $30.00 to the Graduate School's address listed above.
If you have changed your name (due to marriage or name change), please ensure that all forms of your past and current name are listed on your application. Failure to do so may result in a delay of your application.
All graduate applicants must provide evidence, in the form of official transcripts, of an earned baccalaureate degree from a college or university accredited by the appropriate regional accrediting agency, such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Applicants must submit an official hard copy of their transcripts from each and every institution attended to the Graduate School by the posted deadline. Transcripts must be less than one year old from the date of printing. When requesting college transcripts, please be sure to request a hard copy transcript as most institutions will send out electronic transcripts unless otherwise requested. Former UNF students will not need to request transcripts unless they have attended an institution since leaving UNF.
***Please note that we are unable to accept electronic transcripts.
Students with degrees earned from institutions outside the United States are required to provide a course-by-course transcript evaluation in addition to their official transcripts. More information about the evaluation may be found on the International Applicants page.
Students must provide official scores from the appropriate aptitude test. UNF's Institution Code for the GRE exam is 5490. The code for the GMAT exam is CF3QB51. There are no departmental codes. Please refer to your intended program profile to determine which aptitude test to take.***Please note that it takes 3-4 weeks for official test scores to arrive to the Graduate School. These scores must be received before the posted deadline of the program to which you are applying. However, you may report your unofficial scores to the Graduate School immediately after taking the test. You may call, e-mail, or drop off your self-reported scores if you are concerned that the official scores may arrive past the posted deadline.Selected programs exempt students with an earned graduate or professional degree from submitting GRE scores. For more information, please contact the Graduate School. Learn more about the new GRE here. To schedule a GRE test at UNF, contact the Office of Academic Testing at (904) 620-1973.
The UNF Division of Continuing Education offers GRE and GMAT prep courses throughout the year. More information about the dates and times of these courses can be found at UNF's Division of Continuing Education website.
Many programs require letters of recommendation, personal statements, or writing samples to supplement the application. A list of admission requirements are available by viewing the program profile.
UNF Online Recommendation System
If your program requires recommendation letters, enter the recommenders' name and e-mail address while you are completing the online application. The recommenders are sent a link to complete their recommendation in the UNF Online Recommendation System. If the recommender completes the electronic recommendation, they do not have to provide a hard copy of the recommendation. Reference forms are available in the online recommendation system for programs which require forms. Students have the ability to change or modify their recommender(s) in their myWings account.
When submitting your supplemental materials, please do not staple, use page protectors, binders, folders, or three-ring binders. Please send all materials loose. If you already have a student ID number (an "N Number"), please write this at the top right hand corner of every page. If you do not have a student ID number, please ensure that your name is on every page of your application materials.
