Frequently asked questions about our first-year admissions decisions.
We strongly recommend you submit first semester grades if you have not already done so. If you no longer wish to be considered for admission, you can log in to your Application Status Check and complete the Deferral Reply Form which allows you to cancel your application.
A select number of students will be offered an opportunity to join us on the Tallahassee campus after completing one of these four pathways: FSU-Panama City Pathway, First Semester Abroad Pathway, First Year Abroad Pathway, and Spring Transfer Pathway. Detailed information about these pathways can be found at FSU Admissions | First-Year | Decisions. The Office of Admissions selects the students for the Seminole Pathways Program from summer and fall applicants and decisions are based upon academic profile and interests.
Students admitted as Spring Transfer must enroll in at least 15 semester hours of approved college credit at Tallahassee Community 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. More details on Spring Transfer requirements are available on the Spring Transfer FAQ.
Yes, if you successfully complete 15 credit hours of approved course credits and earn a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher with no grade below C, you will be able to start in January as a transfer student. All enrollment requirements and admission conditions must be met.
Due to the thoroughness of our application review process, it is unusual for us to reverse an admission decision. We will consider an appeal only if it reveals new academic or personal information that was not present in your initial admission application. Appeals will be reviewed after May 1st. Detailed information about our appeals process can be found here.
