University of North Florida
UNF is a relatively young university - established in 1972 - and it is growing rapidly in size and stature. The University has expanded from a handful of buildings at the end of a dirt road to a thriving campus with five colleges in a bustling section of Jacksonville. Yet UNF retains its small-campus feel, helped by its location amid beautiful lakes and nature trails situated on 1,381 acres. The campus also is midway between downtown Jacksonville and the Atlantic Ocean, which adds to the appeal of its location. The University of North Florida is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, masters, and doctorate degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of the University of North Florida. Individual contact to the Commission on Colleges about the University of North Florida accreditation status should occur only if there is evidence that appears to support significant noncompliance with a requirement or standard. UNF is now showing up in nearly every national college ranking, putting the University at the top of some very impressive lists. UNF even received the prestigious Carnegie Classification for Community Engagement. And while the national recognition is an important benchmark of their quality and value, it is the small class sizes and individualized attention that have become hallmarks of a UNF education. The University of North Florida is also known for providing students with Transformational Learning Opportunities, or TLOs as they are known on campus. Each of their 16,500 students has a chance to take part in a life-changing experience – conducting research with faculty, taking part in community-based learning or studying abroad, which UNF students do at twice the national average.
