International Students - Admissions
Exchange student admission requirements
These admission requirements are intended for exchange students to UNF. Exchange students are defined as international students nominated by UNF's partner universities to participate in a one-semester or one-year non-degree course of study here at UNF. If you are not from one of UNF's partner institutions and have not been nominated through your university, you are not eligible to become an exchange student at UNF. If you are interested in becoming an exchange student at UNF, please contact the international office at your university for assistance.
Once you have been formally nominated and accepted by your university and UNF as an exchange student, follow the steps below to apply.
Complete and submit to the UNF International Center the required application materials listed below. Please do not apply online through the UNF portal.
- UNF Exchange Student Application Form

After the required documents have been received from the partner university on behalf of the student, the International Center will process the application to provide the student with a UNF student I.D. number, called an N# (example: N01234567).
Note that all documents may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, but that official copies of university transcripts are mandatory. Official copies must come directly from a university staff member. Transcripts received from the student will not be considered official.
