Office of Admissions
Office of Financial Aid
Located on the fifth floor of University Center A is our Office of International Programs. Florida State has been sending students abroad for over 60 years, and our program consistently ranks among the top 15 in the nation. One in five FSU students will make time to study abroad as undergraduates, which is double the national average. Because FSU makes both general education and major-specific curriculum available overseas, opportunities to study in different countries are much higher at FSU than other universities. Additionally, this curriculum flexibility makes it easier for students to participate at any point during their undergraduate career. We also offer international internships, and we have four year-round study centers located in London, England; Valencia, Spain; Florence, Italy; and Panama City, Republic of Panama. Students also have the opportunity to study abroad over the summer in about 20 different countries around the world. The Office of International Programs accepts most forms of scholarships and financial aid in addition to offering around $200,000 worth of scholarships annually in an effort to keep costs more affordable.
Students applying to Florida State directly from high school are classified as first-year students. Our office follows a regular admission model, meaning all students must submit their application and application materials by a specific date. The admissions office then reviews all the applications submitted by the deadline and sends out admissions decisions on the same day. First-year admission is a holistic and selective process, and no single criterion guarantees admission. Rather, we consider a range of factors. These items include a student’s academic record, curriculum, senior schedule, essay, test scores, and resume.
Each year, we enroll approximately 3,000 transfer students. Most of our students come to us from the Florida College System, and most will have completed their Associate in Arts degree. However, we accept transfer students from all nationally accredited institutions at all levels. Students must complete 12 or more college credits after high school graduation to be considered a transfer student.
Transfer admission is a holistic and selective process, and no single criterion guarantees admission. Rather, we consider all the documentation you submit, and we carefully review your academic record to ensure you are prepared for the academic rigor you will encounter at Florida State University.
Florida State University is recognized as one of the best value colleges in the nation. The Princeton Review named FSU the No. 11 Best Value College for 2021 among public colleges and universities. The list profiles 200 schools that The Princeton Review selected out of more than 650 institutions. FSU's continued upward trajectory in these rankings reflects our commitment to high standards of academic excellence and our dedication to affordability, accessibility, and success for all of our students. Florida State consistently delivers an affordable, high quality education. We offer many resources to help students navigate the financial aid process, and all admitted students are automatically considered for one of our merit-based scholarships.
