Selecting Courses

UNF Course Catalog

Courses may be taken only on a space-available basis. 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 an LFL's course selection. Restrictions are listed in the catalog and on the course schedule; our system prevents students from adding restricted courses to their schedule. If you are interested in taking a course with a restriction, you must contact the department offering the course prior to registration. If you provide written approval from the academic department, or from a professor in the appropriate academic advising office, an override will be assigned, allowing you to register for a restricted course on the designated registration day.


There is a specific registration day for admitted LFL students. For tuition fees to be waived, you must register for courses on the designated LFL registration day. LFL students can self-register in myWings or come into One-Stop Student Services (Hicks Hall- Building 53, 1st Floor) for assistance. Be sure to first check the One-Stop Student Services webpage for walk-in and appointment information. Once registered, follow the instructions below to change the grade mode designation to "audit". Please note that some classes are not permitted to be taken in audit grade mode.

**ESSENTIAL STEP**: The University requires two-factor authentication for most applications. The purpose of two-factor authentication is to protect your UNF account and your personal information. It adds a quick and easy step to the login process. After entering your UNF ID and password, two-factor authentication requires you to validate your identity by responding to a prompt using a second verification method such as a mobile device. Please visit the Duo webpage 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.

*Deadlines are subject to change
