"We are committed to helping you succeed, and make the most of your college experience."
- Dr. Karen Laughlin
Dean of Undergraduate Studies
There are as many reasons to attend Florida State as there are students enrolled. Hear what a few of them have to say about their experience.
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 your questions that are left unanswered after browsing our website.
For some, the hardest part of going to college is figuring out how to pay for it. We are committed to providing you with the best financial aid package possible to enable you to enroll. The key to all need-based aid is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA. We encourage you to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1.
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, the quality of our professors teaching the courses, and the opportunities for undergraduate research and recognition.
No one benefits from a life of all work and no play. We encourage our students to be active, both inside the classroom and out. You will find over 600 student organizations to join, an extensive array of intramurals to keep you active, and countless service opportunities to do your part in making the world a better place.
Applying for admission and getting accepted is only the first step in your journey to joining our Seminole Community. Now you have to apply for housing, decide on a meal plan, and sign up for Orientation. Learn all your next steps at this site. Go 'Noles!
