Students who do not meet the minimum criteria above or have previously been on probation or suspension may be considered for admission on probation with special restrictions.

Good Academic Standing
Undergraduate students who possess a total institutional GPA of 2.0 or above.
An undergraduate student who fails to maintain good academic standing as stated above will be placed on academic probation and referred to an academic advisor. Academic probation is a warning. Transcripts will reflect probations.
Academic Suspension and Dismissal
If the total institutional GPA falls below 2.0 at the end of a semester in which a student is on Academic Probation, then the student will be eligible for suspension. If suspended, the student will be dropped from any course for which he/she is currently registered and denied the opportunity to re-enroll until released from suspension by their respective College. Transcripts will reflect suspensions.
Coggin College of Business Suspension terms
Students enrolled in Coggin College of Business courses are responsible for assuring that they have satisfactorily met the requirements for all prerequisite/co-requisite courses. The student's professor, the department chairperson, or the Director of Student Service Center has the discretionary authority to dismiss any student who has not fully complied with this policy from the related courses. Fees will not be refunded for dismissal from a course by one of the parties listed above if the dismissal is for lack of required prerequisites or co-requisites.
Students desiring to enroll in a “directed independent study” must obtain appropriate approvals from the faculty member, department chairperson, and the Director of the Student Service Center. Traditionally, the faculty member chooses the student that is preferred to do research with. The student and the faculty member must complete an “independent study” form, which must detail the work to be done and grading policy to be used. Only regular faculty members can supervise directed independent study courses unless the appropriate department chairperson and the associate dean grant special permission. Please email your advisor for a copy of the form.
The Coggin College of Business supports and encourages undergraduate students to study abroad. In all cases, students must obtain approval regarding anticipated academic credit earned prior to departure. The Coggin College of Business offers three types of programs:
1.Faculty-led study abroad courses
Note: Coggin undergraduate students can only apply TWO upper-level, faculty-led study abroad courses towards their program of study. This excludes the 4-week summer and semester programs. Also, Coggin undergraduate students can only use ONE faculty-led study abroad towards their “major” requirements.
2. Four week summer programs (via exchange partners) "Coggin In...."
3. Semester and academic year abroad (via exchange partners)
On a limited case by case basis, students may be approved (through the formal College petition process) to participate in non-Coggin College of Business study abroad programs, when demonstrating a unique need unable to be met through a Coggin College of Business study abroad program.
Concurrent enrollment at other institutions is NOT permitted for Coggin College of Business students.
In extenuating circumstances (documentable) when permitted, concurrent enrollment requires prior approval in advance of taking courses at another institution. Students must first fill out a “Waiver of College Policy” form for permission. If permission is granted, students must complete the Transient Student Admission Application at www.floridashines.org. Go to Transient Courses or see your advisor for clarification.Students are not allowed to take courses at another institution in their final semester at UNF. This policy includes correspondence courses and CLEP examinations. If a student obtains permission to take a prerequisite course at another institution, permission to take the subsequent course will not be given until a final grade is provided.
Any UNF students working towards a single baccalaureate degree who satisfies all requirements for two majors within the Coggin College of Business will be awarded two diplomas and both majors will be indicated on the permanent record. Once the degree has been awarded, subsequent course work cannot be added to create a second degree for either major. In order to earn a double major, students must complete all prerequisites and major requirements for each major. Students must meet GPA requirements for each major and earn a minimum of 120 semester hours.
Students in the Coggin College of Business may pursue a simultaneous degree as long as the second college (for example Arts and Sciences) agrees that the student may seek the simultaneous degree in that college. Advisors in both colleges work closely together to see that student completes the appropriate courses and meets all requirements to obtain two degrees (simultaneously) at the University of North Florida.
For Upper-level Courses
Students must have completed a minimum of 51 semester hours of acceptable college level course work in order to enroll in 3000 or 4000-level courses in the Coggin College of Business. There is one exception to this policy: BUL 3130 Legal Environment of Business.
This policy related to degree evaluation course work applies both to courses taken at UNF and courses taken at other institutions. Courses expire when they are 10 years old and will need to be repeated if not completed before the date of graduation.
Note: classes that may be in the 10 year window at start of degree may fall off degree evaluation as the 10 year window closes and the courses expire.
