1. APPLY TO UNF
The first step you must take is to apply to the University of North Florida online. Deadlines to apply are posted here, and ALL applications materials must be submitted by the posted date. This includes: official transcripts, test scores, and application fees.
Specific admissions requirements are broken up into three categories: Freshman, Transfer, and Graduate. Please check these pages to ensure you have submitted all the required materials with your application.
Up to 15 credit hours of college level coursework may be transferred from your military training.
The Army, Marine Corps, and Navy are now using a Joint Services Transcript (JST). The Coast Guard is also in the process of switching to the JST.

How to: Official Transcripts Sent to Post-Secondary Institutions

Every Osprey has a unique "N Number." Your N Number is your key to everything UNF; you'll need it to login to Osprey email, on-campus computers, Blackboard, and (most importantly) the MyWings portal.
MyWings is where you will register for classes, receive refunds or pay debts, and view financial aid.
If you have been accepted to UNF but are unsure what your N Number is, contact UNF ITS.
Note: To receive priority class enrollment on your time ticket the University must be aware of your Veteran status. If unsure, please contact One-Stop at 904-620-5555 and press the option for Records and Registration.
The Military & Veterans Resource Center holds a military and veteran student orientation at the beginning of fall and spring semester. Even if it is not your first semester, we invite all military, veteran, and dependent students to attend this valuable information session. The VA Certifying Official and Transition Coach provide answers to your enrollment and benefits questions, and you may discover new resources available to you.
