Brooks College of Health Undergraduate Academic Policies
Concurrent or Transient Enrollment
Any current UNF student interested in taking a course at another institution must receive permission from the Advising Office. Sophomore level students can take up to 8 credits at another institution. Upper-level courses specific to the student's major must be approved by the program director. Students must speak with an advisor before they fill out the electronic transient form prior to the semester they wish to take the course.
Each new transfer student, except freshman, and native sophomore, junior, senior and post-baccalaureate UNF student must meet with the Brooks College of Health Academic Advising Office to review their degree evaluation once they enter the college. This meeting is mandatory and typically takes place prior to registration. Each admitted health student or UNF health student who reaches 30 credits will receive an email notification for a meeting. Health majors designated as honors students will receive academic advising from both a Brooks College of Health advisor and a Hicks Honors advisor until they reach 60 credit hours. An advising hold will be placed on the student's account to ensure they meet with Advising in a timely manner.
Defined Major for Limited Access Programs
Students who are designated a Brooks College of Health limited access major including Prelicensure Nursing or Exercise Science must meet the minimum GPA admission requirement once the student has 45 attempted credit hours.
Limited access major students who do not meet the minimum GPA admission requirement when they have 45 attempted credit hours must change their major to Pre-Health before proceeding with additional coursework. Students will closely work with Brooks College of Health academic advisors to improve their academic performance while at the same time exploring alternate major options.
Pre-Health majors may apply for a limited access program once they meet the admission requirements or change major to another program.
Additionally, students who do not meet minimum college overall GPA
requirements (3.00 for pre-Nursing; 2.75 for pre-Exercise Science) may not
change their major to pre-Nursing and pre-Exercise Science.
Returning from Academic Probation or Suspension
Students on academic probation that go inactive after non-enrollment for three consecutive semesters must receive permission from the program director to be re-admitted into the major. Suspended students who wish to be re-admitted must receive permission from the program director and chairperson. Certain majors within Brooks College of Health will not re-admit students who left the institution on probation or were suspended.
