Freshman Deadlines

All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the published deadlines. In addition, the University reserves the right to close freshman admission earlier if warranted by enrollment limitations and the number and quality of applications. There are two deadlines and corresponding notification dates for freshmen applying for either the summer or fall term. The University does not generally accept freshman applications for the spring term.

In addition to applying for admission to the University, some academic programs also have different deadlines and require supporting information and/or auditions. Visit the academic department website if majoring in dance, film (animation or production), music, or theatre.

Checking Your Application Status

Once you have applied, the Online Status Check (OSC) will allow you to check on the receipt of transcripts and test scores, as well as checking the current status of your application. To access the OSC, you should go to You will log in with your FSUID and password. (Please be aware that our office processes thousands of applications each semester, and it takes time for files to be updated, especially around deadlines.)

Many of our communications, including your admission decision, are sent electronically. Please make sure that we always have your most up-to-date email address. You will need to check your email account and the Online Status Check on a regular basis. To ensure receipt of our emails, include in your address book.
