Thank you for helping us set another record for applications received by our November 1st priority deadline. We are up 103% in applications received compared to last year! We are very grateful for the ever-growing interest in Florida State, but the large increases in applications over the last few years have made yield prediction very challenging. After thoughtful consideration, we felt it was necessary to make a few changes to our current admissions processes to help us meet our enrollment goal of 6,200 first-year students.
Important Changes effective Summer and Fall 2022:
How does this impact your students? We plan on sending an email to all our summer and fall applicants and their family members explaining the changes in our admissions processes. All applicants will be provided with an opportunity to change the term on their application. If an applicant does not want to make a change, no further action is needed. Information on our admitted student profile for the fall and summer terms can be found on the Decision FAQ. Please note that since we will be enrolling a smaller class this year, the summer and fall profiles may be higher than in previous years. Our summer term begins June 20th and ends July 29th. Students that start in the summer automatically continue into the fall term beginning August 22nd. Those students that wish to make a term change to summer will be able to do so by logging in to their Application Status Check and completing an Application Change Form. The deadline to complete the Application Change Form will be December 8th.
I know changing existing admissions processes at this point in the admissions cycle is less than ideal. I hope this advance notice will give you and your students time to process these changes and to make any necessary updates to existing applications. Just like last year, we will be hosting a counselor event on the morning of February 17th where we will review the admissions decisions being released later that day. In the meantime, should you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 850.644.1389.
With much appreciation,
