Senior citizens must be a Florida resident and sixty years of age or older. They must be admitted and classified as a senior citizen in the Office of Admissions prior to registering for classes. Students must complete the Learning for a Lifetime Application and a UNF Immunization Health Form. Both forms may be downloaded in PDF or requested from One-Stop Student Services. There is no application fee, no course limit, and no grades are given. Learn more about the Learning for a Lifetime Program.
See the Course Schedule online. Courses may be taken on a space available basis only. Senior citizens may not use a fee waiver for MAT 1033, dissertation, thesis, practicum, independent study, applied music, supervised research, supervised teaching, and internship courses.
Restrictions on courses may limit a senior citizen's course selection under the Learning for a Lifetime program. Restrictions will appear on the course at the time of registration and will prevent you from adding the restricted course to your schedule. If you are interested in taking a course with a restriction, you must complete the online Registration Override form as prompted in your myWings portal. If approved, an override will be assigned by an academic advisor or department representative, which will then allow you to register for the course.
There is a specific senior citizen registration day. Please see the above table for dates. Senior citizens may register in the myWings portal or in One-Stop Student Services in Ann and David Hicks Hall, Building 53, Suite 1700. You may print your schedule confirmation online or request one in person at One-Stop Student Services. A picture ID will be required when registering or printing your schedule on campus.
You may register online via the myWings portal or at any of the conveniently located computer kiosks on campus.
Fees are automatically waived (unless you have registered for courses for which you will receive credit). Your fee assessment will show a balance due until the fee waiver has been applied. The fee system generally updates during the week following Add/Drop. Fee waivers are not available to senior citizens taking any courses for credit. You will be responsible for the following fees:
- Classes you register for prior to senior citizen registration day
- Late fees incurred by registering during the first week of classes and the Late Registration period as noted on the Academic Calendar.
- Lab/studio fees associated with certain courses
- Annual ID card fee
- Parking Permits
- Distance Learning Fee associated with online courses
A student ID card is necessary to use the library, computer center, fitness center, swimming pool, and other facilities at UNF. You may get your ID card from the Osprey 1Card Office in the Lassiter Hall, Building 8, Room 1100. The Osprey 1Card costs $10 and you will need to bring a copy of your schedule with you at the time of purchase. An annual ID card fee is charged to all UNF students to maintain the benefits of the Osprey 1Card. You are responsible to pay this fee to maintain service and avoid late fees or registration holds for future terms.
Parking permits may be purchased online from Parking and Transportation Services.
