Step 2: Fill out your application

There are two ways to fill out a UNF application:

  1. After you create an Osprey Account, look for the Apply Now link on the top right corner of your screen. This link will take you to the institutional UNF online application. A great benefit of applying through your Osprey Account is that you can edit your application anytime.

For more information about SSAR, please visit our FAQ page.

*Note that SSAR is not available to submit until August 1, but the UNF application is currently open. 

Step 4: Check the status of your admission decision via the myWings portal

Check your email for important messages and instructions. Once you have submitted your application, you’ll be assigned an UNF ID number which will give you access to myWings, UNF’s student portal. Please note, this is a separate account from your Osprey Account. You will want to check the portal often to see the status of your application. All future UNF communication will be sent via myWings. You should receive access within three days.

If you want to change your major 

You do not need to fill out a new application to change your major. We recommend you wait until you are admitted then change your major through your academic advisor. If you are a transfer student changing between limited/selective access and non-limited/selective access majors, please email your request to the Office of Admissions.

After submitting your application, you will be able to track the status of the application and your academic credentials in myWings.
