UNF Description

“A budding state university on the fast-track to prestige” is what USA Today has called University of North Florida, located in Jacksonville.

A school that regards itself as being “somewhere in the middle,” neither too big nor too small, University of North Florida is a bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degree-granting institution.

University of North Florida is divided into four distinct colleges, which include the Brooks College of Health and the colleges of Business, Arts and Sciences; Computing, Engineering and Construction; and the College of Education and Human Services.

Part of what makes University of North Florida an impressive destination is its progressive offerings and facilities. Through the Transformational Learning Option, students undertake research, engage in field studies and even travel abroad instead of just staying in the classroom.

Numerous academic institutes such as the Florida Center for Public Policy and Leadership and the Intercultural Center for Peace add to the experience of high-quality academic scholarship.

Additional branches of study at UNF include distance learning and continuing education options.

Student services encompass comprehensive career services, a counseling center, an interfaith center, disability resources and a women’s center. There are many on-campus housing options available as well.

Financial aid is available to eligible students through numerous sources, which may be discussed with a financial aid counselor.

The school is very welcoming and has a friendly atmosphere. The advisers are extremely knowledgable and eager to help you even if your like me and you ask a million and one questions. The school is situated in beautiful Jacksonville with amazing wildlife and water all around. i love the fact that i can go to the beach right down the road for some downtime. The best tip i would give to someone would be to apply early and always email. I email the nursing department quite frequently and they are always really quick to get get back to me.

I love this school, and I think it is very under-rated! Just because we dont have a football team, people think it is a dinky school. But I love the campus, the city, the classes, etc... almost no complaints!! The sporting events are fun, I love playing intramurals, and the honors program is really awesome!!
