UNF/Jacksonville Refugee Connection: Bridging the Needs of Our Community

At the University of North Florida, we will help you through this extraordinarily difficult time. We can ease a few of your burdens by offering you a place to study, live and work as you move forward with your life. While it may not seem like much after your world has been turned upside down by immigrating to a new country, we can provide:


  • A path to study with us full- or part-time

  • Help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

  • Providing access to special services on our campus to ease your transition to Jacksonville and our community

  • Help finding employment

  • Assistance navigating social services

  • Removing barriers to learning or your new life

We will make the transition as seamless as possible. Please go to to apply to UNF or call (904) 620-5555 to speak to one of our special team members today. Our staff is ready to answer your questions and ready to help you.



Students may qualify for a scholarship. Please fill out this form and someone will contact you soon. 

We are committed to helping refugee community members become students with as much ease, comfort and kindness as possible.
