President's Message

The value of a University of North Florida education has been growing every year in leaps and bounds, and 2013 was no exception. Our entering freshman class posted the highest test scores in University history with an average weighted grade point average of 3.94 and an SAT score of 1215 for both reading and math, placing UNF near the top of the State University System when it comes to its academic profile.


Fall 2013 marked our second full year of mandatory first-year housing for freshmen. Students who lived on campus had higher grade point averages and took and completed more credit hours.


That program feeds into our plan to continue building a robust Culture of Completion here at UNF, which includes a vibrant campus community, top-notch academic resources and unparalleled access to study-abroad and Transformational Learning Opportunities. We want our students to not only graduate on time, but to graduate with the tools necessary to be successful in today’s job market.


Students who receive their bachelor’s degree from UNF are more likely to get a job in Florida than graduates from any other state university. They are among the highest paid as they start out their careers and that continues into their mid-careers.


It is a great time to be an Osprey.
