College of Education and Human Services Undergraduate Academic Policies

Undergraduate Admission into Teacher Education Programs

Students seeking admission into a state approved teacher education program within the College of Education and Human Services must have completed a minimum of 60 semester hours from UNF or other regionally accredited educational institution(s). An Associate of Arts degree (AA) from one of Florida's State Colleges or SUS schools satisfies General Education and Gordon Rule requirements. In addition a minimum grade of "C" in all lower and upper level classes is required for the major including all General Education and prerequisite course work. Students must have a minimum grade point average (GPA) of a 2.5 or higher in all course work taken at UNF as well as from all previously attended institutions. Students must present passing scores on all four parts of the General Knowledge Test (GK) in order to be considered for admission into the College of Education and Human Services Teacher Education programs. GK scores must be submitted before a decision can be made.


An admitted undergraduate education major who fails to earn a cumulative or term average of 2.5 after completing a cumulative total of 15 or more credits will be placed on academic probation and referred to an academic advisor. Academic probation is a warning. If both the term and cumulative GPA fall below 2.5 during the next term of enrollment, the student will be eligible for suspension. If suspended, the student will be dropped from any courses for which they are currently registered and denied the opportunity to re-enroll. The student should contact the Office of Academic Support and Information Services located in Building 57 Suite 1300, (904) 620-3934.
