Graduate School Admissions Processing Deadlines and Documents

All international students must submit their application and all required admission material by the posted deadline for their Graduate Program.


For international students pursuing an F-1/J-1 visa: According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1/J-1 students cannot pursue online degree programs, part-time, or certificate programs. Therefore, the University of North Florida is not allowed to issue F-1/J-1 student immigration documents for online, part-time, or certificate programs. Immigration documents can only be issued for students who are fully admitted to a full-time, on-campus, in-person, degree-seeking program. Please contact the International Center at for more information.

If you have a scholarship that requires you to be enrolled in face-to-face (in-person) classes each semester, contact the Graduate Program Director for more information regarding availability of face-to-face (in-person) classes.
