The Undergraduate Experience

Announcing a new requirement for 2015 freshman applicants: the Self-reported Student Academic Record (SSAR)

Think of SSAR as an abbreviated form of your high school transcript that you create. The creation of your SSAR is relatively easy, but before you start, you should have a copy of your high school transcript to make sure you accurately reflect your classes and grades. Accuracy is important because your decision will be validated, using the official transcripts sent to us after you have graduated from high school. For more information on the new SSAR requirement, please click here. To create your SSAR click here.


Our transfers come from all types of institutions, both two year and four year, and at all levels. Transfer students are drawn by our world-class faculty, strong academic programs, exciting extracurricular activities, and our supportive environment. Explore our website, visit campus when you can, and apply soon to become a part of our Seminole family!


With a Carnegie classification of very high research activity, few schools can match the depth and quality of our graduate programs. Our world-class faculty and graduate students are involved in wide-ranging scholarship that is recognized nationally and internationally for its contributions to science, business, government, culture, and society. Explore The Graduate School website, visit campus when you can, and apply soon to become a part of our Seminole family!


Our students come from all over the world! We embrace diversity and celebrate all of the cultures represented in our community. We have a spectacular building, nicknamed "The Globe," in the center of campus to raise multicultural awareness and to provide even better service to our international students. Our goal is to promote and to prepare all of our students to be global citizens.



Our College of Medicine offers a comprehensive curriculum that prepares students for any specialty or medical setting with special attention to family care, geriatrics, and the needs of underserved populations. Our College of Law enjoys an ever-increasing national reputation and provides students with a strong legal education in a collegial and supportive environment.



If you are a returning student who has missed more than two terms of enrollment, you must apply for readmission. If you are enrolled elsewhere and you wish to take a few courses here, you must complete a transient application. If you are interested in personal enrichment and not a degree, you should apply as a non-degree student.
