For unconditional admission, the applicant who will enter Florida College as the graduate of an accredited high school must meet the following minimal academic requirements:
For unconditional admission, the applicant who will enter Florida College must be at least 17 years old by the first day of class.
A student who meets the age and character requirements but has not fulfilled all of the academic requirements for unconditional admission may be admitted conditionally, if he or she meets the following requirements:
The student admitted conditionally may remove the condition before enrolling in Florida College by completing high school or college courses in the subject areas of the deficiencies. Otherwise, the student must begin during the first semester of enrollment to remove deficiencies by completing Florida College courses in those subject areas. One semester of college work completed successfully (with a grade of C or better) will substitute for one academic credit of high school study in the same subject area.
For those applying on the basis of a GED diploma:
Prospective students requesting to be admitted on the basis of the completion of their GED should complete steps one through three under the heading “Apply Now” above. In addition, they must submit an official copy of a GED score report indicating the applicant has passed all sections of the GED to receive a GED diploma. Because GED scores do not translate into GPA equivalencies, applicants are not eligible for academic scholarships in their first year.
When you took the ACT, CLT, and/or SAT, you had the opportunity to request that your scores be sent automatically to colleges and universities that you were interested in. If you included Florida College in this list, we will receive your scores automatically. If you did not request that we receive your scores at the time of your tests, you will need to request that an official copy of your scores be sent to us directly from the testing agency.
Florida College accepts college credit earned by examination, following the guidelines set by the Florida Articulation Coordinating Committee, for the Advanced Placement (AP) program, Cambridge AICE program, International Baccalaureate Program, and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Up to 45 semester hours credit may be earned by examination. No examination credit can be assigned if credit by course work is previously or subsequently awarded, or if a course in that discipline or any part thereof has been begun in college classroom work.
