Seminole Pathways Offer

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

Students start their FSU experience in the summer by completing an online course offered through FSU Panama City. In addition to successful completion of the online course, students will enroll for the fall and spring terms 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. After the spring 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 in summer or fall. Students will need to complete a Campus Location Change Form at the end of the spring semester. More information on this pathway is available on the FSU Panama City website.

Students start their FSU experience in the summer by completing an online course offered through FSU International Programs. In addition to successful completion of the online course, students 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 at the FSU Tallahassee campus in January. More information on this program is available on the International Programs website. (Note: Separate fees apply.)

In addition to successful completion of the online course, students will enroll for the fall, spring, and following summer terms at one of our study abroad centers in London, England; Florence, Italy; Valencia, Spain; or Panama City, Republic of Panama. Following their year abroad, they would be eligible to join us at the FSU Tallahassee campus in January. More information on this program is available on the International Programs website. (Note: Separate fees apply.)

Students who choose this pathway enroll in at least 15 semester hours of college credit at another institution, preferably a Florida state college, in the fall and must earn a minimum 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) college grade point average with no grade below C. If students take classes in the summer, their college GPA for that term must also be 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) with no grade below C. Our 15-hour fall requirement cannot be split between summer and fall, so if students take courses during the summer, they must still take 15 semester hours during the fall. College credit earned in high school through AP, IB, AICE, or dual-enrollment cannot reduce the 15-hour fall requirement. Their coursework must include ENC 1101 (English Composition) and either MAC 1105 (College Algebra, preferred math), MGF 1106 (Mathematics for Liberal Arts), or MGF 1107 (Topics in Practical Finite Mathematics) depending on math placement and their major's math requirement, unless they have already earned comparable or higher level course credit through an accelerated mechanism such as AP, IB, AICE, or dual-enrollment. Students should refer to the Academic Program Guide for their major's math requirement. Student should refer to Accelerated Credit for college credit awarded through acceleration. While students can transfer from any regionally accredited college, we highly recommend that they consider transferring to us from Tallahassee Community College for priority registration opportunities.

Spring Offer

The student applied for fall or summer term but was offered admission to the spring term, provided that they complete 15 semester hours of credit at another institution, preferably a Florida state college, in the fall. To be admitted, the student must acknowledge the term change by completing the Spring Offer Reply Form on their Application Status Check. Acknowledging the spring offer does not commit the student to attend Florida State. Our office will periodically follow-up with the student over the summer and fall as we prepare for their enrollment in the spring.

Defer

Students who apply for our first round of decisions and select a major of Film, Music, Dance, Studio Art, or Theatre may have their application deferred to our rolling round of decisions, pending the result of their audition and/or on-campus interview.

Deny

If a student is denied admission in our first round of decisions, their application will be reconsidered if the student updates their SSAR with mid-year senior grades and submits new SAT/ACT test scores. Denied students who wish to attend FSU are encouraged to re-apply in the future as a junior transfer student, preferably with an Associate in Arts degree earned from a Florida public college.
