  • The University of North Florida Graduate School embraces holistic admission practices by considering multiple sources of information when making an admission decision, including a statement of interest, recommendation letters, academic transcripts and test scores. All admission materials are reviewed and no one item is determined to be the sole indicator of academic potential. Holistic admissions will allow for the extraordinary circumstances related to the COVID-19 outbreak to be taken into account for the spring 2020 term. The University of North Florida realizes many institutions implemented alternative grading options such as S/U or P/NP and these will be reflected on academic transcripts. Our admissions practices will not penalize an applicant for alternative grades posted in spring 2020 and will focus more on academic performance prior to and, if applicable, after this term. We will focus on an the academic rigor of an applicant’s curriculum and their ability to successfully convey that they are prepared for graduate education.
