UNF college information...AND SAT/ACT TEST PREP

 

UNF is preparing to return to normal, pre-COVID campus operations starting in the Fall 2021 term. 

Pre-COVID campus operations planning includes: 

  • Majority face-to-face courses 
  • Small in-person class sizes and personalized attention 
  • Return to an active, community-involved campus experience 
  • More opportunities to enjoy our fun, vibrant and beautiful campus.  

    Compared to schools with much larger populations, UNF's campus size provides the opportunity to return to a more normal daily life while still minimizing potential health risks. With that said, the campus community will continue to follow CDC guidelines and may still require health screening, mask-wearing and quarantining when necessary.  

ACT On-Campus at UNF  

UNF is excited to begin offering the ACT On-Campus test (formerly ACT Residual). The ACT On-Campus test is a convenient, on-campus testing option available to students who have been unable to test on an ACT National Testing date. Check out our ACT On-Campus website for more information and to register!  


Spring events 

Registration is open for our on-campus and virtual spring events and tours! Please tell interested students to register online.
