Graduate University Policies
Center for Global Health and Medical Diplomacy
UNF students who want to change their major to a Brooks College of Health program must change the major within the Advising Office. The advisor will help the student change their major and review program requirements.
Any current UNF student interested in taking a course at another institution must receive permission from the Advising Office. Upper-level courses specific to the student's major must be approved by the program director. Students should fill out the electronic transient form prior to the semester they wish to take the course.

Each new upper-level transfer student and native UNF student must meet with the Brooks College of Health Academic Advising Office to review their degree evaluation. This meeting is mandatory and typically takes place prior to registration. Each admitted student or UNF student who reaches 60 credits will receive notification for a meeting. A Dean's Hold will be placed on the student's account to ensure they meet with Advising in a timely manner.
All students must submit an application for graduation to the Office of One Stop Student Services or on-line through myWings by the deadline established in the university calendar. Students should not enroll at another institution during their last semester at UNF. Graduation will most likely be delayed to the subsequent semester for students who do attempt concurrent enrollment in their last semester. Students may not graduate with "I" grades, even if the course(s) is not required for graduation. Official transcripts for graduating seniors taking courses at other institutions in their last semester must be received in the Office of One Stop Student Services by the required deadline.
The Brooks College of Health has several undergraduate programs that require specific requirements and procedures to gain admissions into the program. Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Health with a concentration in Exercise Science, and Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training are limited access programs. For additional information, please see program specific admission requirements.

Undergraduate students who fails to earn a term GPA or cumulative GPA of 2.0 after attempting 12 or more credits hours will be placed on academic probation. Academic Probation is based on the student's UNF GPA. The student will stay on probation until their UNF cumulative and term GPA are above a 2.0. If a student is on probation and has a cumulative and term GPA below a 2.0, the student is eligible for suspension. Students who are suspended will be dropped from any courses they are currently registered.

Students on probation that go inactive after three semesters must receive permission from the program director to be re-admitted into the major. Suspended students who wish to be re-admitted must receive permission from the program director and chairperson. Certain majors within Brooks College of Health will not re-admit students who left the institution on probation or were suspended.
Effective Fall 2013, there is a course withdrawal limit for all degree-seeking and non-degree seeking undergraduate students. The limit is six (6) UNF course withdrawals.
Unused withdrawals are forfeited and may not be carried forward. After the withdrawal limit is reached, students will be blocked from further course withdrawals by the myWings registration system.
Any course withdrawals that took place prior to Fall 2013 do not count toward the limit. The withdrawal limitation only applies to courses taken in Fall 2013 or later. Courses with a grade of "WM" (Medical Withdrawal), "WS" (Military Service Withdrawal), or "WR" (Withdrawal with Refund) are excluded from the limitation policy. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor prior to completing a course withdrawal if there are questions about how this will affect the academic record or future coursework options.
Please note that graduate students do not have a withdrawal limit.
