About The University of North Florida
The University of North Florida (UNF) is one of twelve public colleges and universities within the State University System in Florida. It is a comprehensive, metropolitan university, which offers degree programs at the baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral levels. Initially established as an upper division and master’s degree-granting institution, UNF began offering classes in 1972 to a 2,000-member student body. In 1984, freshmen and sophomores were admitted. In 1990 the university opened a doctoral program in educational leadership. In 2007, UNF added a doctorate in nursing practice and a doctorate in physical therapy. And in 2016, UNF offered a post-MSN doctor of nursing practice and a doctorate in clinical nutrition.
Fall of 2016, the student body had about 16,000 students enrolled in 55 undergraduate degree programs with 74 areas of concentration, 30 master’s degree programs with 52 areas of concentration, and five doctoral degree programs with three areas of concentration, all consistent with its mission. UNF employed 550 full-time instructional faculty in the fall of 2016, about 80 percent of whom had a Ph.D. or other appropriate terminal degree. UNF has also maintained ...a 1:19 faculty-to-student ratio, consistent with the institution’s mission to maintain an unreserved commitment to student success.
UNF remains one of the more selective comprehensive universities in America. The 2016 fall freshman class entered with an average SAT score of 1208 (excluding the writing test) and an ACT score of 26.4. The same class entered with a 4.17 grade point average. About 50 percent of the freshman applicants who applied were admitted in the fall 2016 class, reflecting the university’s commitment to a high-quality undergraduate education.
UNF maintains an unreserved commitment to student success with a diverse, supportive campus culture and the awareness that exposure to a blend of students, faculty, and staff offers a rich and rewarding educational experience. The fall 2016 student body consisted of about 57 percent women, 34 percent ethnic/racial minorities, and 88 percent undergraduates. These students, coupled with an increasing number of international students and a core of graduate students, enable UNF to provide a unique learning environment.
