Have a parking appeal or Student Conduct issue? The Student Advocate, a Student Government representative, is here to assist students with problems concerning academics, administration, and parking appeals cases. In addition, the Student Advocate is responsible for providing defense counsel to all parties accused of election code violations, barring a conflict of interest. Contact your Student Advocate at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNF Student Government wants to increase awareness on Term and Grade forgiveness. It is important to understand the benefits and drawbacks of this tool. Over a thousand (1000) Students utilized term and grade forgiveness between January and August of 2012. You can find the most important fact about this topic please click here. For additional information, please visit UNF Registrar's website.
Important Note: Although none of the courses will count toward graduation or in the cumulative and term GPA calculation, the originally recorded grades will be used in calculating any “honors” for graduation.
