University Classification

Students entering the University of North Florida as freshmen will not be classified within a department or division but will be assigned to an academic advisor in the First Year Advising Office. Students are encouraged to declare a major after they have completed 30 credit hours.

After completion of 60 credit hours, students must be admitted to an upper-level college and must establish an official program of study. When junior-level students are admitted to UNF, they enter a department within one of its academic units: the Brooks College of Health; the Coggin College of Business; the College of Arts and Sciences; the College of Computing, Engineering and Construction; or the College of Education and Human Services. Association with an academic unit effectively classifies the student, facilitates advisement and career planning and enables the development of an appropriate program of study. This program of study may be amended to accommodate additional courses as well as waivers and/or substitutions of courses. The programs listed in this catalog show the generally accepted courses necessary for completion of basic requirements for each degree program.

If your academic objectives change, please visit your advisor or program director regarding a possible change of major.

Upon recommendation of the faculty and the chair of a department, the dean may deny a student's continued registration in the department.
