Advising Testimonials


They seemed to always be available to answer any questions I had and guided me to make the best choices for myself when it came to a change in major, while ultimately encouraging me to make the choices that I felt were best for myself.
I was never confused about what I needed to do to get my degree. Since my sophomore year, my advisor has helped me figure out what major I belonged in and truly changed my college years for the better. I am confident I am graduating with the degree I am meant to have.

  • Why do I need a Degree Evaluation and an Osprey Map?

    The Degree Evaluation is an electronic document that allows students to track their academic progress. The document is updated every semester as students complete degree requirements to reflect the most up-to-date academic progress. The Osprey Map is a detailed guide for the best path for a student to take courses and serves as a course sequencing guide for students.

  • How do transient students register for Coggin College of Business courses?

    Transient students seeking to enroll in Coggin College of Business courses must get permission prior to registration. All prerequisites for Coggin College of Business courses are strictly enforced. Students can access the UNF catalog on the web to determine if courses they wish to register for have prerequisites.

    Transient students may contact Coggin College of Business Academic Advising to find out if they qualify to take Coggin College of Business courses. Transient students will be required to furnish proof that prerequisites for Coggin College of Business courses have been satisfied. A transient student admissions application is not sufficient proof that prerequisites have been met.

  • How do I get permission to take Business Policy (MAN 4720, MAN 6724, MAN 6726)?
    Visit the Business Policy Page for complete instructions.
  • How do I get permission for a directed independent study?

    Students may pick up the appropriate form from the departmental offices or Academic Advising. Forms are to be completed by the student and the faculty member directing the independent study. It is the student's responsibility to arrange with the professor the course title and course specifications required. These specifications must include how the study is to be evaluated for a grade. After the appropriate signatures are obtained (student, faculty member, department chairperson, and Director of Academic Advising), the form should be submitted to Academic Advising (Bldg 10/Rm 1351). If all the appropriate requirements are met including student eligibility, electronic permission is given by the Director of Academic Advising. Students are notified of the approval or denial by email.

    Students may be approved for a maximum of six DIS hours.

  • Do you offer online classes?
    The Coggin College of Business offers some online and hybrid (online and in-class) course; typically the majority of our offerings are traditional (in-class) courses.
  • Can I take classes at another institution once I enroll in the Coggin College of Business at UNF?

    III. Miscellaneous Policies 

    In general, concurrent/transient enrollment in business courses at other institutions is not permitted for Coggin students.  Business courses include lower-level business prerequisites and upper-level business courses required for the degree.

    UNF native BBA or BA degree-seeking students can request permission for concurrent/transient enrollment only when extenuating, documentable circumstances are present. The concurrent/transient approval is required prior to taking the course(s) at another institution. Students must first complete a "Waiver of College Policy" form for permission.   If permission is granted, students must complete the Transient Student Admission Application at FloridaShines  Students should meet with an academic advisor, and then follow instructions to complete the transient process. UNF native students are students who first matriculate at UNF after high school graduation. 

    Transfer students, dependent on their transfer status in accordance with the Florida Board of Governors, would either require permission for concurrent/transient enrollment through Coggin Advising and a “Waiver of College Policy”, or the  Transient Student Admission Application at FloridaShines. Students should meet with an academic advisor to determine eligibility and then follow instructions to complete the transient process. Approval through a waiver or FloridaShines application is required prior to taking the course at another institution. 

  • How do I return to UNF if I have been suspended from the Coggin College of Business?

    First Time Suspension: Students who are returning after their first suspension have not broken continuous enrollment and should meet with an academic advisor to discuss his/her plans to continue classes successfully. This meeting should take place at least eight weeks before the semester for which they wish to return. This advising meeting is necessary to process the necessary paperwork for readmission.

    Students who have Broken Continuous Enrollment: Students in this category must reapply at the Admissions Office at least 12 weeks before the beginning of the term for which they are seeking re-enrollment. Readmission is not automatic. Once the college makes a decision on the student's request, students are notified of the decision by mail. Students who are readmitted are sent specific instructions on their readmission conditions and given specific procedures to follow so that registration can take place in a timely manner. The reapplication deadline is strictly enforced by the college.
