A Message from the Director


Greetings Colleagues,


My arrival as Interim Director has meant leadership change in the UNF Admissions Office midway through your school year. However, I assure you that our commitment to your students will remain undiminished.  My mission is to continue the open dialogue that you, your students and their parents have come to expect from UNF Admissions this year and in years to come.


I sincerely appreciate your critical contributions on advising students about college choice.  We understand that your advisees have options.  There are more than 350 different college and university choices within a single-day drive of UNF.  We know that each of those institutions is as unique as each of your students.  So, how do I define UNF amidst these myriad options?  


Succinctly put, we’re a smaller Florida public university that attracts students with strong academic profiles.  Our students want personal interactions with their professors and easier access to unique learning opportunities.  Our students like to be close to the beach and to the abundant career opportunities that Northeast Florida has to offer. UNF offers all of this and even more – I encourage you to schedule a tour or high school visit for your students so they can see this themselves.


Please do not hesitate to contact your regional representative or me personally with questions or concerns. I can be reached best via email at jyancey@unf.edu or via phone at (904) 620-2658.


With Continued Respect,




John Yancey, Interim Admissions Director
