Florida State makes it easy for students to apply by giving them several options.
We require all first year applicants to submit at least one ACT and/or SAT test score by the application deadline. Florida State does not require the optional ACT writing score or the optional SAT essay.
Florida State University's first year application fee is $30. Both the Common App and the Coalition application carry an additional $5 processing fee. If a student qualifies for a CollegeBoard, ACT, or NACAC fee waiver, the entire amount, including the processing fee, is waived.
Please allow up to two business days to receive an email confirmation from Florida State University. That message will contain instructions about how to access the Application Status Check.
FSU requires the Profile, Family, Education (excluding Grades and Current / Most Recent Year Courses), Writing, Institution-Specific Questions, and Recommenders & FERPA sections of the Common App.
FSU requires the Personal, Contact, Demographic, Citizenship, and High School and College Information sections of the Coalition application. Additionally, while FSU does not require students to submit an essay, The Coalition does require students to provide an essay, as other Coalition schools may require one. If you do not wish to submit an essay to FSU, please enter "N/A" into the Coalition Essay prompt.
Letters of recommendation are not required and will not be used in the decision-making process.
