Transfer Admissions


Each year, we enroll approximately 3,000 transfer students. The majority 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 regionally accredited institutions at all levels. We encourage you to apply at least six months prior to the term you wish to enter, and we hope you will contact us with any of our questions that are left unanswered after browsing our website.

The Process

  • Review transfer admission requirements.
  • Apply online.
  • Submit official high school and all college/university transcripts (sent directly from each institution). College coursework from a non-U.S. institution must be evaluated by a Foreign Credential Evaluation Agency.
  • Submit official ACT (#0734) and/or SAT (#5219) results for every test taken. (Applicants taking the ACT must also submit the ACT Writing Test.) It is recommended that junior and senior transfer applicants also submit test scores.
  • Submit all AICE, AP, IB, or CLEP results if you have earned college credit through one of these accelerated mechanisms.
  • Submit the residency form.
  • Determine if the major/program of interest has a different application deadline and/or additional admission criteria, i.e., prerequisites, audition, portfolio, etc.

Deadlines

The University deadlines* are listed below; however, some academic programs have earlier deadlines than those established by the University, or may admit only for a specific term. Prospective applicants should refer to the Academic Program Guide for program application deadlines.

Spring Summer Fall
November 1 March 1 July 1

All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the published deadlines. In addition, the University reserves the right to close transfer admission earlier if warranted by enrollment limitations and the number and quality of applications.

*If the University deadline falls on a weekend, applicants have until the following Monday to submit their applications and all supporting documents.

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 the current status of your application. To access the OSC, you should go to https://admissions.fsu.edu/StatusCheck/. 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 admissions@fsu.edu in your address book.

Academics

There are many factors to consider when choosing a college, but none is more important than academics. If you haven't decided upon a major, be sure to explore the variety of majors we offer. And if you have decided upon a major, check out the types of courses we teach, and the opportunities for study abroad and undergraduate research and recognition.
