Admissions policy, effective Fall 2009

Those entering the College of Education and Human Services (COEHS) must meet University admissions requirements as well as specific COEHS admissions criteria. Students who have not satisfactorily completed 60 semester hours of college credit but meet University admissions standards are admitted as Lower Division students (freshmen or sophomores).


Students who have completed 60 semester hours or more of college credit and meet COEHS admissions criteria are admitted directly into the COEHS as Upper Division students (juniors or seniors). Listed below are the criteria for admission into the College of Education and Human Services at the upper division:

  1. Satisfactory completion of 60 semester hours of credit from UNF or other regionally accredited institution(s). An Associate in Arts Degree (AA) from one of Florida's 28 Community Colleges or 10 SUS schools satisfies General Education and Gordon Rule requirements.
  2. A cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.5 in all college level course work taken at UNF and all previously attended institutions.
  3. Passing scores (no exceptions) on all four parts of the General Knowledge Exam as one component of the Florida Teacher Certification Exams.
  4. Three COEHS prerequisite courses, which are: EDF 3.0 1005 Introduction to the Teaching Profession (formerly Intro to Education), EDF 2085 Introduction to Diversity for Educators (formerly Teaching Diverse Populations) and EME 2040 Introduction to Technology for Educators (formerly Introduction to Educational Technologies).

Students not meeting the minimum admissions requirements for the College of Education and Human Services may apply for admission under the College's Exceptions Policy.
