  • November SAT can count for October deadline but
    it cannot be the first SAT attempt.
  • Apply online (SAT or ACT w/writing and must
    complete application essay).
  • FSU does not want letters of recommendations
    from counselors and teachers.
  • Major factor for admissions Academic profile
    (academic GPA and quality of curriculum) in
    combination with test scores. FSU will recompute
    the GPA. They review grade trend and course
    selection in senior year. FSU is looking for
    good, reliable students!
  • In addition to GPA and test information, the
    admissions process will continue to assess
    applicants on the strength of the academic
    curriculum with greater consideration given to
    those taking advanced coursework. Other factors
    considered include class rank, first generation
    and socioeconomic status.

9
  • All applicants will be evaluated using a
    GPA/ACT/SAT matrix that incorporates the
    plus/minus assessment. If an applicant is
    deferred on the Dec. 19 notification, FSU will
    expect to see additional test scores and mid year
    grades. Minimum score requirements
  • SAT - 500 CR, 500 math, 500 writing,
  • ACT - 21 English, 22 Reading, 21 math, 21
    writing.
  • Satisfying the minimum required units does not
    guarantee admission. The typical student accepted
    to Florida State has 22 core academic units.
  • Students with acceptable GPA but below minimum
    SAT/ACT subscores will automatically be deferred
    or denied until new test scores have been
    received. Jan. SAT and Feb. ACT scores are last
    that will be accepted.
  • Students deferred on Dec. 19 notification FSU
    will expect to see mid-year grades and additional
    test scores for final decision.
  • Admissions offers will be rescinded if a
    students dual enrollment GPA is below a 2.0.

University of Florida
  • Fall - Middle 50 Summer Middle 50
  • 4.1 - 4.5 academic GPA 3.9 - 4.3 academic GPA
  • 1820 - 2120 SAT 1670 - 1990 SAT

  • Requires on-line application.
  • One Application Deadline November 1
    Transcript request deadline
  • One Decision Release Date February

  • (will receive test scores through Dec.)
  • IMPORTANT CHANGE Applicants are now required to
    enter in their academic profile onto the online
    application SAR report, this includes class names
    and grades earned. UF will not be collecting
    transcripts at time of application (only after
    admission has been awarded).
  • All applicants must submit the SAT or the ACT
    w/writing test. The university will accept the
    highest subscores from the SAT if you took it
    multiple times. The university cannot mix or
    combine ACT subscores.
  • Few students are admitted purely on academic
    merit. While the potential for academic success
    is a primary consideration, UF's comprehensive
    holistic application review considers the
    personal essay, academic awards, extracurricular
    activities, family background and home community.
    The admissions process is designed to consider
    all aspects of an applicants academic record and
    personal experiences, and is not intended to
    admit applicants solely on the basis of grade
    point averages and test scores.

11
  • The Office of Admissions employs a comprehensive
    review process that evaluates academic and
    nonacademic criteria. They search for students
    who will be UF's future community of leaders,
    learners and thinkers, and whose education will
    be enhanced by diverse experiences
  • Short-answer and essay questions, in particular,
    help admissions officers consider the applicant
    within the context of each applicant's own
    experiences with family, in high school, in his
    or her local communities and within the context
    of his or her cultural backgrounds. All factors
    that can distinguish an applicant's achievements
    and indicate the potential for success at the
    University of Florida are considered.
  • UF does not want counselor or teacher
    recommendations.
  • Innovation Academy- Provides students will a
    small-group experience focused on innovation,
    creativity, entrepreneurship, ethics and
    leadership. Students are enrolled in the
    spring-summer academic year and have the fall to
    explore off-campus experiential pursuits such as
    study abroad, internships, research or online
    courses. Majors included in the Colleges of
    Agricultural and Life Sciences, Business, Design,
    Construction and Planning, Engineering,
    Journalism and Communications, Liberal Arts and
    Sciences and Public Health and Health
    Professions.

Follow Through and Follow Up
  • Have SAT and ACT scores sent directly to colleges
    from CollegeBoard and ACT. All testing should
    include writing component.
  • The standard entry point is the fall semester.
    However, freshmen may choose to acclimate
    themselves to college and campus life in Summer,
    when there aren't as many students at the
    university. Summer admit may differ slightly
    from fall in terms of competition. You should
    apply to the semester that you want to begin.
    Most universities will offer you summer if you
    are a candidate for it.
  • Online Status Check- Students can monitor the
    status of transcripts and test scores, as well as
    the specific date on which the admission decision
    will be made. Applicants being deferred or
    offered summer admission will have that
    information available to them online. Check your
    email regularly. Colleges receive thousands of
    applications and supporting documents, therefore
    it will take some time for files to be updated.
    Please be patient and check back regularly before
    panicking and contacting the admissions office.
