Meet Your Admissions Counselor


The Admissions Recruitment team is dedicated in supporting you, our students, with navigating the admissions process. All students are assigned an Undergraduate Admissions Counselor by where you live (State and/or county) and by Educational pursuits. When you need help feel free to speak to your counselor or contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at admissions@uwf.edu or (850) 474-2230.

In the coming months, the Admissions Recruitment team will be visiting high schools, attending college fairs, and offering instant admission decisions throughout Florida and the United States to give YOU the opportunity to speak with a recruiter, in person, and ask questions about UWF and the college admissions process. See where we are scheduled to be visiting.
