Learning for a Lifetime at UNF

The Learning for a Lifetime (LFL) program was designed to promote the increasing desire for knowledge among experienced citizens of the First Coast community. The LFL program allows Florida senior citizen residents to audit college-level courses with tuition waived. There is no application fee, no course limit, and no grades are given in the LFL program.

Selecting Courses

UNF Course Schedule

 

Courses may be taken on a space available basis only. LFL students may not use their 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 LFL’s course selection. Restrictions are listed in the catalog and course schedule 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 contact the department offering the course prior to registration. You may provide written approval from the academic department or professor to the appropriate academic advising office and an override will be assigned, allowing you to register for the course on the designated registration day.

Registration

There is a specific LFL registration day. You must register for courses on the designated LFL registration day for tuition fees to be waived. 


**NEW** The University requires two-factor authentication for most applications. The purpose of two-factor authentication is to protect your UNF account and personal information. It adds a quick and easy step to the login process. After entering your UNF ID and password, it requires you to validate your identity by responding to a prompt using a second factor such as a mobile device. Please visit the Duo web page for instructions on how to set up your extra layer of security.

 

IMPORTANT: If you register for classes before the assigned registration day, you will be responsible for all tuition and fees.

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. Please be sure to know your UNF ID and password if you come to campus to register.

Fees

Most 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.

 

As an LFL student, you are responsible for the following fees:

  • Classes you register for prior to LFL registration day
  • Late fees incurred by registering during the Late Registration period as noted on the Academic Calendar
  • Lab/studio fees associated with certain courses
  • Parking permit (purchase online)
  • Distance Learning Fee associated with online courses
