Enrollment Services Appeal 

The University of North Florida recognizes that life events beyond your control may impact your academic success. If you feel that there are extenuating circumstances that contributed to poor academic performance, negatively impacted your financial aid, or hindered your ability to meet a residency deadline, you may submit an appeal to the Enrollment Services Appeals Committee. The decisions of the Enrollment Services Appeals Committee are final; no additional appeal review levels are provided.


A student’s circumstances must be extenuating to be considered by the Enrollment Services Appeals Committee.

Students may submit an Enrollment Services Appeal for review of the following decisions:              

  • Denied In-State Residency
  • Denied In-State Residency Reclassification
  • Review of Residency Reclassification or Initial Residency Classification after the deadline
  • Denied Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal
  • Loss of Institutional Scholarship (UNF Presidential, Blue and Gold, Blue and Silver, etc.)
  • Loss of State Scholarship (Florida Bright Futures)


Students wishing to appeal a financial aid or residency decision must submit the following:

  • Enrollment Services Appeal
  • Signed statement explaining extenuating circumstances (uploaded with appeal)
  • Signed Academic Plan of Action (if appealing a financial aid decision) (uploaded with appeal)
  • Supporting documentation which corroborates your extenuating circumstances and Academic Plan of Action

Supporting documentation should be uploaded prior to submitting. Up to ten documents may be uploaded per appeal. The Enrollment Services Appeals Committee will not consider appeals submitted without documentation.


Submission of an Enrollment Services Appeal does not guarantee approval. For timely consideration and to ensure timely disbursement of funds, if the appeal is approved, appeals should be submitted as soon as possible.
