What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
The sooner you apply, the better your chances are of being accepted.
Tour the campus!
Carly from Florida
Leave your house/dorm/apartment early enough to beat the morning class traffic. Parking is limited so if you do not have a premium parking pass, you will have to purchase a daily pass for $3.00 and park in the parking lots in the back. From there if you do not feel like walking you may take a UNF shuttle but be careful, they stop at every stop and you may be late for class. Prepare yourself and make sure you are up early to get a great start.
Lindsay from Orange Park, FL
Apply early! And consider applying for programs such as the Honors Program, which look great on resumes. Take time to figure out what and when you eat before you choose a meal plan. And trust me, the food doesn’t suck. Decide whether or not you want comfort or the basics before you apply for housing and make sure you read up on the perks each dorm has. You can also choose which roommates you want. I wish I’d known about all of the free services UNF had to offer before I went out and bought them for myself. If you’re planning on joining any sort of ensemble or team, make sure you email the coach or director beforehand to discuss auditions and tryouts – you may need time to prepare. And always check out the scholarships UNF offers!
Rebekah from Orlando, FL
I will be honest, UNF is not as hard to get into as UF or FSU...but it is a growing school that I think is only getting better. I would definitely apply early, and focus on SAT scores, plus community service. UNF will really reward those students who come in with great GPAs and test scores as well. They also take a lot of AP credits. When I got here I got full credit for my AP Macro-economics, AP Psych, and AP Literature.
Sloane from Valrico, FL
Make sure that you can enjoy down time, and when the time calls be a social butterfly. Like any college you have to make sure to keep an open mind, a open heart, and willing to go out and try new things.
Tyler from Riverview, FL
I would greatly advise that prospective students not only visit the school, but attend one campus event such as a musical performance, one of the various sporting events, or a play at Lazzara Theatre, so they can see how other students enjoy the college experience. I would also advise looking online at the schools multiple freshman and transfer student scholarships.
Tasha from Florida
Although the University of Florida is said to not be as active as other colleges, the University actually has many opportunities to socialize and spread your wings. There are many group activities and events you can be a part of if you are looking for them, don't be derailed by a singular idea of what active and fun is if you are looking for a great college experience its one part the college and another you exerting yourself and putting yourself out there to find what suits you and what you find enjoyable there are plenty of friendly club's and things to do if you look for them. My tip is not to rely on the college but on yourself to make sure you get the most out of college and your studies as a whole; be proactive.
A from Jacksonville, FL
Don't bank on being able to park on-campus as there are more students with Blue Parking passes than parking spaces. In fact, the permits were oversold this past semester. The best option is to park in lots 18 or 53 and taking the shuttles to class. Arrive early so you're not late to class.

Visit the campus! You can't tell if a school is right for you from the website or brochure. Make the effort to try the university out, and see if it may be a good fit for you! University of North Florida is a great place to visit, so schedule a tour!
Page from Longwood, FL
Take a tour! The campus is beautiful and the people are really nice. Also if a college knows you've toured it makes it just a little bit easier to get in because they know your seriously considering their school.
