Questions? Contact UNF's International Center.
Non-US citizens must have a valid visa to study at UNF as an exchange student. To obtain a visa, you must have a DS-2019 issued by UNF. Consult the US Embassy in your home country for information on the visa application process. Once students have submitted their application, financial affidavit, and passport copy, they can expect processing to begin on their DS-2019 soon. Therefore it is important for students to submit these three items as early as possible. Once the DS-2019 is complete, it will be mailed along with your welcome packet to your home institution.
When to Arrive in Jacksonville
Students should expect to arrive a few days before classes start at UNF and before the two REQUIRED international student orientations (see above). Please take these factors into consideration when making flight arrangements. Once you have arranged your flight, you must send your flight information and itinerary to our office.
If it is unclear when you should arrive or you have any questions about your arrival plans, please e-mail Caitlin Jaeger.

Information on the airport pick up days will be mailed to you with your DS-2019 and welcome packet. Students living on campus should notify our office of their arrival plans as early as possible so we can assist in making arrangements for checking-in with the Housing Department. .
