Seminole Pathways Program

Students selected by the Office of Admissions to participate in the Program will be able to join us on the Tallahassee campus after completing one of the four pathways outlined below.

FSU Panama City Summer & Fall Pathway

Students who choose this pathway start their FSU experience in the summer and continue in the fall at our bay-front campus in Panama City, Florida. FSU Panama City offers a personalized education with a 20:1 student/faculty ratio and hands-on learning opportunities. Just 8 miles to the sandy white beaches of the Emerald Coast, FSU Panama City offers students opportunities to work in the Robbins Center's augmented reality lab, earn an Open Water Diver certification, and participate in FSU Panama City's various student organizations. After the fall term, students are welcome to continue their education through graduation in one of FSU Panama City's diverse and growing academic programs or transfer to the FSU Tallahassee campus. More information on this Pathway is available on the FSU Panama City website.

FSU International Programs First Semester Abroad Pathway

Students who choose this pathway start their FSU experience in the summer term by completing an online course offered through International Programs. In addition to successful completion of the online course, they will enroll for the fall term at one of our study abroad centers in London, England; Florence, Italy; Valencia, Spain; or Panama City, Republic of Panama. Following the fall term, they would be eligible to join us in Tallahassee in January. More information on the First Semester Abroad program is available on the International Programs website. (Note: separate fees apply.)

FSU International Programs First Year Abroad Pathway

Students who choose this pathway start their FSU experience in the summer term by completing an online course offered through International Programs. In addition to successful completion of the online course, they will enroll for the fall, spring, and the following summer terms at one of our study abroad centers in London, England; Florence, Italy; Valencia, Spain; or Panama City, Republic of Panama. Following your year abroad, you would be eligible to join us in Tallahassee for the Fall. More information on the First Year Abroad program is available on the International Programs website. (Note: separate fees apply.)

Out-of-state students who successfully complete the First Year Abroad Pathway will have the added benefit of receiving an out-of-state tuition waiver for the remainder of their bachelor's degree on the Tallahassee campus.

Transfer Pathway

Students who choose this pathway start their college career at an accredited college and transfer to Florida State University for the spring term (January). They must complete a minimum of 15 semester hours of approved college coursework in the Fall term and earn a minimum 3.0 grade point average. Their coursework must include ENC 1101 (English Composition) and either MAC 1105 (College Algebra), MGF 1106 (Mathematics for Liberal Arts), or MGF 1107 (Topics in Practical Finite Mathematics) depending on math placement and major, unless they have already earned course credit through an accelerated mechanism such as AP, IB, AICE, or dual-enrollment. While students can transfer from any accredited college, we highly recommend that they consider transferring to us from Tallahassee Community College.
