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.

 

Apply to the Learning for a Lifetime Program

Admission

To be considered an LFL student, you must be:

  • A Florida resident
  • Sixty years of age or older
  • Admitted and classified as a senior citizen in the Office of Admissions prior to registering for classes

 

All students must complete the Learning for a Lifetime application and a Residency Declaration every semester they wish to participate in the LFL program. All students must also submit a UNF Immunization Health Form when first joining the program. 

 

Students can apply to the Learning for a Lifetime program online or by downloading the paper application and returning/mailing it back to the UNF LFL office. 

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 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.

Registration

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

 

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

LFL students may register for classes online in their myWings portal, at any computer kiosks on campus, 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.

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
  • Annual ID card fee
  • Parking permit (purchase online)
  • 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.
