Applicants who are not U.S. citizens or are not permanent residents of the U.S. are considered for admissions on the same basis as citizens or permanent residents. However, because of the different processing requirements and time/distance issues (especially for mail), applications and other materials for admission should be submitted as early as possible. Be aware that most U.S. students apply for university entrance typically a year in advance of their anticipated starting dates. Deadlines for submission of international student application materials are as follows: The following requirements must be met by an international applicant in order to begin studies in either undergraduate or graduate programs as a degree-seeking F-1 or J-1 student at the University of North Florida :
Please send all materials or direct admissions inquiries to: The Graduate School University of North Florida 1 UNF Drive Jacksonville , FL 32224 E-mail: email@example.com
The Application for Admission: International Students must be accompanied by a US $30.00 non-refundable fee (check or money order in U.S. dollars only) payable to the University of North Florida (UNF). Do not send cash. Applications will not be processed without this fee.
2. Completed Application for Admissions: International Students.
Be sure to first read all of the information on requirements, however. Even though On-Line Application is possible, certain items will have to be mailed in separately. Two additional points: (A) be sure to include a valid mailing address where a student will be able to receive mail at all times up to the date that he/she departs for Florida. (B) It is strongly recommended that a student have an e-mail address, and check it regularly, as it is the main method of communication with a student prior to arrival.
3. Official Academic Credentials.
Original transcripts from all institutions must be submitted from the foreign institutions directly to the Graduate School at UNF. To determine academic eligibility for admissions, academic credentials must be (a) translated into English and (b) evaluated course-by-course by an evaluation service. Applicants have the responsibility to contact the evaluation agency directly and to provide UNF with an original evaluation of all academic credentials.
4. English Language Proficiency.
All applicants, except those from countries where English is the only official language, are required to furnish satisfactory evidence that the applicant's competency in English is adequate.
5. Official Test Scores: GRE (Graduate Record Exam)
Scores must be submitted for the Mathematics & Statistics graduate program. The Department of Mathematics & Statistics requires a GRE minimum of 1000 total (verbal and quantitative) with a minimum of 600 in the quantitative section.
Please send all materials or direct immigration inquiries to: International Center University of North Florida 1 UNF Drive Jacksonville , FL 32224-2659 Telephone: 904-620-2657 Fax: 904-620-3925 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
U.S. Federal regulations require that international students show reliable documentation that readily available funds are guaranteed at least for the first year of study and that adequate funding will be available from the same or equally dependable sources for subsequent years. The following documents are required before UNF can issue the Form I-20 needed to obtain the F-1 student visa:
1. Affidavit of Financial Support and Bank Certification. The Affidavit is a legal document that is signed by the sponsor (the person who will be providing the funds) stating the amount of funds that she/he will provide for the educational expenses of the student applicant and then certified by a bank official that the sponsor does have that amount of funds in his/her account. This form represents an obligation on the part of the sponsor to provide the required amount of funds as indicated on the form. Please review the Estimated Costs of Attendance for International Students to determine the amount of funds needed to be written on the Affidavit.
Please send all materials or direct health inquiries to: Medical Compliance Office University of North Florida 1 UNF Drive Jacksonville , FL 32224-2659 Telephone: (904) 620-2175 Fax: (904) 620-2901 E-mail: email@example.com (immunizations) or firstname.lastname@example.org (insurance requirement)
The State of Florida requires the following of all international students:
1. Immunization Documentation Form. All students at the University of North Florida are required to demonstrate that they either have been vaccinated or have immunity against measles and rubella. If students wish to resolve this requirement before they arrive they will need to have their physician complete and then sign and stamp the Immunization Documentation Form. If students wish they can obtain the needed immunizations once they arrive in Florida . However, in no case will they be able to register for or attend classes until they have met this requirement.
2. Health Insurance. The State of Florida requires proof of medical insurance that meets a minimum standard as a prerequisite to registration. Health insurance coverage can be purchased through the UNF Student Health Services upon arrival. If a student would want to request UNF to accept a different insurance policy, the insurance company must fax a completed, signed, and stamped UNF Student Health Services International Student Health Insurance Evaluation Form indicating that the alternate insurance policy meets all minimal requirements as outlined. Students may not register for classes until the health insurance requirement is met.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a graduate degree of Master of Science in Mathematical Sciences. Students can take either the Mathematics or the Statistics track.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a limited number of graduate assistantships. Graduate students who wish to apply for assistantships should apply to the department by completing an application form and should have three reference letters from their respective professors sent directly to the Graduate Director of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Complete applications should be received by March 15 for Fall assistantships. Late applications will be considered for any positions that were not filled by earlier applicants. Graduate Assistantships are awarded on a competitive basis, and they are awarded only after a student has been accepted in to the program.
