Getting Admitted into UNF

The Application Procedure  We strongly encourage you to contact the graduate program director of the degree program in which you are interested. 

  1. All graduate applicants must complete and submit an online application at the Graduate School. Applicants in need of the application in an alternate format can contact the Graduate School for assistance at (904) 620-1360.
  2. Complete the online application and the non-refundable application fee of $30 by the deadline posted for the semester you would like to begin your graduate studies.
  3. Arrange to have an official transcript sent to the Graduate School from each and every college or university you have attended, including community colleges and professional schools. Transcripts must be less than one year old from the date of printing. When requesting college transcripts, please verify with your institution(s) whether or not they are able to submit electronic transcripts in the proper EDI format. Institutions that are currently not EDI capable must submit transcripts in official, paper copy format. Transcripts should be sent to the following address:

    The Graduate School 
    University of North Florida 
    1 UNF Drive 
    Jacksonville, FL 32224

  4. In accordance with the requirements of the specific graduate program to which you are applying, take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), or the Millers Analogy Test (MAT) and arrange to have your official score report sent to the Graduate School at UNF. Please visit for more information regarding the GRE. Students may visit for additional information regarding the GMAT. UNF’s institutional code is 5490 for the GRE and MAT. UNF's institutional code is CF3QB-51 for the GMAT.

  5. Send all supporting documents to the Graduate School. Supporting documents include recommendation letters, personal statements, resumes, writing samples, English proficiency tests, etc.
  6. Students at Florida public universities are required to provide proof of immunization against rubeola (measles) and rubella (German measles) prior to the initial registration. This policy applies to students who attend classes taught at the main campus. Questions concerning this policy should be directed to the Student Health Services Office in the Student Life Center, Building 39A/Room 2100, (904) 620-2175.

  7. The University reserves the right to review the case of any student who has been implicated in a criminal offense prior to admission to determine eligibility for admission and participation in extracurricular activities. At the time of application, students must disclose the final disposition of any past or pending judicial proceedings and submit any pertinent documentation.

    Once the Graduate School has received your transcripts and test scores, your application will be referred to the graduate director of the program to which you are applying. The department will then review your application, make an admission decision, and notify us. The Graduate School no longer mails admission decision letters. Instead, the Graduate School will send official admissions decisions via e-mail within 24-48 hours. Applicants can also view these communications in myWings under My UNF Communications.
