Here are some of the most commonly needed information - whether it's scheduling a campus tour, tuition payments or how to take a summer class.


Your student's success is our top priority. Beginning with new student Orientation and the first year experience all the way through to commencement.


Think About Logistics

How much do you have to spend on tuition, books, housing, etc.? How far away are you willing to let your student go to school? Can freshmen have a car on campus? Is on-campus housing required? These are all important questions to consider. The best place to start your quest for the answers is online. We invite you to explore our website to help you get a game plan for your student’s transition to college.

Get Paperwork Together

The first major step in securing your student’s financial aid package is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can fill out the form beginning the October prior to the academic year for which you are applying. In order to complete your FAFSA, it is important that you have your completed tax returns available. If it’s too soon to fill out the FAFSA and your tax returns yet, start collecting all the necessary documentation now. The earlier you submit your FAFSA the better chance your student will have his/her full financial needs met.

Let Your Student Lead

Now is the time to allow your child to take control of their college search process. It’s important for you to discuss the logistics of his/her decisions, but ultimately it is your student who will have to live with this choice for the next four years. Give your child responsibility for calling the UNF Admissions office to ask questions about his/her application, financial aid, and scholarship options. At UNF, our staff is available via phone or email so it’s easy to get in touch.
