UNF Admission Deadlines

 

All application materials must be received (not postmarked) by the close of business of the posted deadline. If a deadline falls on a Saturday or Sunday, applicants may submit materials through close of business on the immediately following Monday. Students who previously applied, but have not attended UNF within the three terms prior to their current desired term of attendance, must reapply by the posted application deadline.

IMPORTANT: All dates and deadlines are subject to change without notice, based on factors such as the number of applications received and spots available. We encourage you to apply early.

Freshman

All application materials must be received by the Office of Admissions by the posted deadline. Students can apply to UNF as early as July 1 the summer before their senior year of high school. Some academic programs accept applications for only certain terms and have program deadlines. Review those on the "Specific Programs" tab.

We recommend applying early for optimal financial aid, scholarships, and housing preferences.
