- Undergraduate application fees cannot be used for a graduate application, and vise versa.
There are two reasons why you don't see your program of choice listed.
- You are in the account creation stage of the application process. Unfortunately not all of our programs are listed at this stage. You may choose one that closely matches your intended program or choose Exploratory.
- The program you intend to pursue is not offered for your term of choice, or the deadline has already passed. Please visit our Graduate Application Deadlines website for offered terms and deadlines.
If you don't believe either option applies, please contact us via phone or email.
- After you submit your application, it takes 24-72 hours for an application to load into the UNF system.
- Once it has loaded, you will receive an email that will include your UNF student ID number (N#) and instructions on how to access your UNF myWings account.
- From your myWings account you will be able to access your application checklist to submit supplemental material and view your status.
- Documents that cannot be uploaded should be sent directly to the Graduate School Office.
- When all of the required documents have been received and your application checklist is complete, we will create a "referral" that is sent to the graduate program director.
- The graduate program director will then review your application and input a decision on the referral. He/she will forward the referral back to us for official input of the admission decision. Please note, it takes at least one business day after we receive the referral back to input the decision.
- Your decision will be posted to your myWings account under Application Status, and email communication will be sent to you.
We recommend you submit your application checklist documents as soon as possible. Once your checklist is complete, we can create the "referral" and forward it to the graduate program director for a decision. Each program has it's own unique decision time-frame. As a result, it is recommended that the applicant contact the graduate program directory directly.
Not all programs accept graduate post-baccalaureate non-degree applicants. Call or email us, and contact the graduate program director of the program you would like to enroll in. If they agree that you can enroll as non-degree:

- Only 12 credit hours of graduate course work taken in a graduate post-baccalaureate non-degree status may be applied to a degree-seeking graduate program. After taking 12 credit hours, a registration hold will be placed on the account and the Graduate Post-Baccalaureate Memorandum of Understanding Form will be required to lift the hold.
- Students in the graduate post-baccalaureate non-degree seeking status are not eligible for financial aid.
Your application term can be updated as long as your original application hasn't been cancelled, you are not wishing to move your term forward more than a year, the program accepts applications for the new term you are requesting, and the deadline hasn't passed for the term you are requesting.
To update your application term, email us.
In the email include:
- Your full name and UNF student N#.
- A brief statement letting us know you would like to move your [insert term] [insert program] application to [insert term].
We will evaluate your file to confirm the update can be made and you will be notified in response to your email. If we are unable to manually update your application term, a new online application will be required. Please note the online application opens approximately one year prior to the start of the term you wish to apply for.
In order to change majors, a new online application is required. Once the new application has been submitted, email us to cancel the original [insert term] [insert major] application.
To update concentrations, email us requesting to update the [insert term] [insert major] application to the [insert concentration] concentration.
Students that have matriculated and are wishing to change their major will need to complete the Change of Major Form. In order to be processed the entire form must be filled out.

The Transfer Institution requirement is automatically loaded when institutional information is manually input on the admission application. It serves as a placeholder that lets us know you attended an institution but we don't have a name for it yet.
Seeing this requirement may also indicate that we found transfer work on one of your other transcripts.
To update your record, please email us a list of all attended institutions. We require official transcripts from all attended institutions. Please verify you provide all those attended at the time of application to avoid delay in processing.
This requirement means that we do not have proof that your bachelor's degree has been earned. In many instances, the requirement will not delay the referral of the application. When all of the required documents (including an incomplete official transcript) are on file, an applicant’s file is normally forwarded to the graduate program director for a decision.
The “Proof of Bachelor's Degree” requirement will be added to the admissions checklist for all applicants that are still completing their degree at the time of application. It serves as a placeholder that lets you know we still require proof of your bachelor's degree. If admitted, you will need to send a final and official transcript to the UNF Graduate School once the degree has been earned.
If the final and official transcript showing proof of bachelor's degree is not received after the first term of attendance, a hold preventing future registration will be placed on your student account.
If the institution was reported by you on your admission application, we will require a statement from the institution indicating they don't have record of you attending. It can be emailed to us and should include your full name and UNF student N#.
In the event you did not report the institution on your admission application, please email us your full name, UNF student N#, and the institution information. We will review your account.
Yes, applicants must submit official transcripts from every post-secondary institution attended to the UNF Graduate School by the posted deadline.
Please note, the UNF Graduate School does not have the ability to request transcripts on the applicants behalf.
- This is regardless of the number of credits earned, or
- if transfer credit appears on another transcript (including institutions attended through Dual Enrollment).
- If currently enrolled in courses, an incomplete official transcript must be submitted before the posted deadline. Once the coursework is complete, a final and official transcript will need to be submitted prior to the end of the first term of attendance to avoid registration holds.
- Applicants who also have to apply through systems such as ATCAS or PTCAS, must still submit official transcripts to UNF.
- Applicants who have earned college credits through the military must also provide a SMART or AARTS transcript.
- When requesting college transcripts, please verify with your institution(s) whether or not they are able to submit electronic transcripts in the proper EDI format. Institutions can submit transcripts via e-mail to email@example.com from an approved vendor such as, ScriptSafe, Credentials, or Parchment.
Former or current University of North Florida students do not need to request UNF transcripts from the UNF Registrar's Office.

To determine academic eligibility for admissions, academic credentials must be
- translated to English;
- evaluated course-by-course; and
- include the overall academic GPA.
Your graduate program director can request supplemental requirements be waived (i.e. reference letters, letter of intent, resume, writing sample, certificates, repertoire list, test scores).
Transcripts and TOEFL requirements cannot be waived under any circumstance as they are considered university requirements.
- Transcripts, test scores, and TOEFL material must be submitted as official copies directly to the UNF Graduate School.
