UNF Information Session for Parents of Students with Disabilities


Greetings from the University of North Florida!


My name is Dr. Tara Rowe and I serve as the director of the THRIVE program located in the Disability Resource Center here at UNF. I’d like to take a moment to share with you an exciting event we will be hosting on Tuesday February 25th for potential parents, caregivers, and educators of students with disabilities transitioning from high school to college with a standard diploma.


As the enrollment of students with disabilities in higher education continues to rise, universities across the country have been continually working to provide accommodations supporting degree-seeking individuals. At the University of North Florida, students with disabilities are offered accommodations and programs to ensure their success on their degree pathway, as well as preparing them for professional life beyond college.


We are inviting potential parents, caregivers, and educators of students with disabilities to come to UNF to learn about admissions, accommodations, financial aid, and much more.  Speakers will be able to answer any questions guests may have about how their child can be supported throughout their academic career at UNF.


If you know any parents or guardians of students with disabilities at your school you believe would benefit from such an information session, please share the Eventbrite link provided below, which will allow them to RSVP to attend the information session. Please note that each individual seeking to attend must register for themselves; this means that if two parents of one child are attending, each parent must register independently of one another. This will allow us to get an accurate count of how many to be expecting.


Thank you for sharing, we look forward to seeing you all on February 25th
