Degree Progression and Change of Major Policy


The University of North Florida encourages timely completion of degrees for undergraduate students. Students who enter UNF as a First Time in College (FTIC) student are expected to complete an undergraduate degree of 120 semester hours of credit within eight semesters if enrolled full-time. If the degree requires more than 120 semester hours, an additional semester may be required. Also, overseas study, certain internships, or co-op experiences may extend the time needed for degree completion. Students who transfer hours earned in high school through Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), dual enrollment, or other mechanisms, and those entering with prior college credits or an Associate of Arts degree should complete their degrees in a shorter time.   

The University of North Florida is committed to helping students achieve their educational goals and graduate in a timely manner. As a part of this commitment, students are required to declare an academic course of study or a major at an appropriate time. Moreover, there may be restrictions on courses that do not contribute to degree completion, and students must follow guidelines regarding their ability to change major.
