Military Policy Agreement:

As a part of the University’s continuing commitment to provide educational opportunities for active-duty military personnel and their spouses, and retired military personnel, a formal policy facilitating the transfer of academic credit was adopted in October of 1987. This policy allows active duty military personnel stationed in Florida, their spouses, and retired military personnel who hold associate in arts degrees from regionally accredited institutions to transfer as juniors to UNF. To determine eligibility, applicants must provide documentation of an acceptable associate in arts degree and verification of their status to One Stop Student Services.

Prior to graduation, students must meet the provisions of 240-2333, Florida Statutes (1988) regarding the statewide foreign language requirement and the provisions of State Rule, 6A-10.030, College-Level Communication and Computation Skills, known as the Gordon Rule.
