    Admissions Essay – Not Required

    Although there is no essay required for admissions, I highly recommend writing one for the Merit-Based Scholarship.

    Merit-Based Scholarship Essay Prompts:

    1. What is most appealing to you about UNF?
    2. What details of your life (your history, experiences, etc.) set you apart from other candidates?
    3. How has your work and/or volunteer shaped you?

    Admissions Essay – Not Required

    USF does not require this information with your initial application. However, in the event that you are deferred for any reason (including semester grades or new test scores), we encourage you to submit this additional documentation. You should send no more than two letters of recommendation, and the recommendations that mean the most are written by teachers who can best vouch for your potential for academic success in college.
