Transient Student

Disclaimer: All special student types fall under the posted transfer deadlines for admission. Students must submit their complete application package before the deadline in order to be considered for admission.   

 

What is a Transient Student?

A student who is already enrolled in one institution and who wishes to temporarily enroll in another institution to transfer credits back to their home institution is referred to as a transient student. Students must obtain approval from an academic advisor in their home institution before pursuing transient enrollment at UNF.

Students are not sent a bill for tuition. Deadlines for payment may be found on the Academic Calendar.

 

Admissions Process

For students attending a Florida public institution:

  • Complete an electronic application through FLVC.  Please note that not all Florida public schools participate in the FLVC program, so please check the list of schools carefully.  Not all schools have the capability to process financial aid requests via FLVC, but the functionality will eventually be available.  If you are not prompted to answer financial aid questions on the FLVC electronic application, you will have to complete the UNF Financial Aid Consortium Agreement

For students attending a Florida public institution that does not participate in the FLVC program:

  • Obtain a transient student application form from your academic advisor in your home institution, complete it, and submit it to: 

UNF Admissions Office

1 UNF Drive 

Jacksonville, FL 32224 

For students attending a private or non-Florida public institution: 

All transient students must provide the following:

  • A recent, official transcript OR a letter of good standing from the University Registrar at the home institution.
  • A copy of immunization records indicating proof of vaccination against measles, mumps, and rubella. Learn more about general admissions policies and immunization requirements.
 

Registration

Transient students can only register during Transient Registration day and Late Registration. Transient students do not receive registration appointments. For registration dates, refer to the Academic Calendar.

Selecting Courses

Transient students should not assume that all UNF courses can be applied to the degree program in which they are enrolled in their home institution. Students should obtain the approval of an academic advisor in their home institution for each UNF course they select. Only the academic advisor in the home institution can assure that courses taken will be applied to a student's degree program.

Prerequisites

To determine if a UNF course requires prerequisites, consult the UNF Course Catalog prior to registration. Students who have taken the necessary prerequisites at their home institution must be able to produce an official transcript confirming completion of the prerequisites. For prerequisite clearance, please contact the department offering the course.

Registering for Courses

After a student has obtained a UNF student ID number, he or she will access registration using the myWings portal, Student tab, Registration Tools and Resources.

Paying for Classes

Students are not sent a bill for tuition. Deadlines for payment may be found on the Academic Calendar.

Tuition and fees may be paid by check, money order, or credit card and must be paid by the payment deadline. Fees must be paid to:

UNF Cashier's Office
1 UNF Drive
Jacksonville, FL 32224

Credit card payments can only be made through My UNF Bill  ("View & Pay My Bill") under the Student tab in the myWings portal.

Transferring UNF Credits to the Home Institution

Once transient students have completed courses at UNF, they must request a UNF transcript from One Stop Student Services and have it sent to their home institution. Official transcripts cost $8 each. The home institution WILL NOT transfer UNF credits to the student's record until an official transcript is received. Learn more about ordering a UNF transcript.

Note: Students must specify that their transcript request should not be processed until the final semester grades are posted.
