Our Decision Day is always filled with so much emotion. On one hand, we are very excited to welcome our Class of 2024. On the other hand, we are sad that we were not able to offer all students the opportunity to start at FSU in their first year of college. We had to make some very difficult choices but, in the end, we feel confident in our decisions. Because we practice holistic review, there generally is not only one reason for why we were not able to offer admission and that may be difficult to reconcile for some. However, if the student is set on graduating from FSU, we encourage the student to consider our transfer options found at https://admissions.fsu.edu/transfer/.
More than 60,800 students applied to Florida State University - an increase of 8.3 percent over last year's record number of total applications received. Starting Thursday evening, students are able to log in to their FSU Application Status Check page and learn their admission status. As is our tradition, the Office of Admissions will stay open until 9 pm to answer any questions from students and their family members as they learn their admission decision.
FSU was able to offer admission to students representing 66 counties in Florida and from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Twenty-one percent of our admitted students will be the first in their family to attend college. The quality of our applicant pool remained very strong, and we saw another increase in our accepted student profile. Approximately 6,000 first-year students are expected to be a part of our Class of 2024, and we could not be more excited to welcome them all to campus.
All of us at Florida State are truly humbled by the number of students who have expressed an interest in FSU and we are grateful for your support - THANK YOU!
