Standard Admission Requirements

There are two sets of requirements: University admission requirements and the specific requirements of each UNF graduate program.

University Admission Requirements

  1. A baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. college or university or its equivalent from a foreign institution with a grade point average of 3.0 (B) or higher in all work attempted as an upper-division student, typically the last 60 credit hours OR an earned graduate degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution or its equivalent from a foreign institution.

UNF Program Specific Admission Requirements

Students may also be required to meet specific or more stringent requirements of the program to which they are seeking admission. Such requirements may include, but are not limited to:

  • Standardized test scores
  • Supplemental documents (i.e. letters of recommendation, resume, personal statement)
  • Licensing

Please visit the the Graduate School website for a list of offered programs and their specific requirements. Students should be aware that admission into any graduate program is granted on a competitive basis. Students meeting minimum requirements may be denied admission based on such factors as program capacity or academic discretion. Likewise, students may be considered for admission as an exception if stated admissions criteria are not met.

Decision Notification

Admission decision letters are provided to all applicants who have submitted a completed application with all required additional material regardless of the nature of the admission decision. Admission decision letters are sent via e-mail 24 hours after the decision is posted. Please note that the timeframe in which a decision is made is dependent on the reviewing process of the program director or the departmental committee (if applicable).
