College Admissions Representatives on Campus
Students are encouraged to thoroughly research colleges of interest. One way to do that is to meet with an admissions representative from your school of interest. If you are a junior or senior and would like to attend one or more of the sessions listed above, you will need to sign up in the IB Office (in the Administration Building across from the Principal's Office) at least one day in advance. Students may not sign up the day of the scheduled visit. When your name is added to the roster for a particular college, you will receive a pass to use on the day of the visit. If you have any questions about this process, see your school counselor
CARE is designed to provide an alternative admission process for first-generation students (defined as their parents not holding a bachelor’s degree or higher). Since 1968, FSU has maintained a commitment to providing access to higher education for educationally and economically disadvantaged is evident through our Center’s services. For students who qualify, we have alternative admissions criteria. Students need only a 2.8 minimum GPA, 19 ACT score, or 1330 SAT score. They must also qualify for the Federal Pell Grant to meet our economic qualifications.
How We Help…
With their application, a student will be evaluated by the CARE Admissions Committee for enrollment. If CARE accepts the student into our Center, the University automatically accepts them into FSU. This means that students who may have been denied admission would have their decision changed in order to participate in CARE. Because FSU firmly believes in the opportunity for higher education, students are admitted to FSU WITHOUT CONDITIONS . This means that they will be an FSU student from the moment they begin classes at FSU (other schools use their summer to evaluate whether to let the student remain in the fall term).
Students begin in the Summer term at FSU through the Summer Bridge Program, a 7-week, intensive transition experience. Students take 7-credit hours, participate in a variety of engagement and enrichment activities, and participate in academic support activities. Students also have receptions with FSU administrators, including the President and Provost, weekly lunches with Deans and department directors, community service events, and professional development workshops. All of the students’ housing, meals, tuition, fees, activities, and health insurance (if required) are covered. Basically, they get their first term at FSU COMPLETELY FREE .
Continued Support Beyond the Summer…
Once the summer is over, they continue their participation for the entire duration of their enrollment at FSU. CARE provides our students with their own academic advisor, financial aid counselor, success/life coaches, free tutoring, free computer access, free printing, as well as a host of other support mechanisms. For students who are classified as foster care, homeless, or wards of the State, we offer the Unconquered Scholars Program, which is designed to provide an additional level of support to help them succeed.

University of Florida Gator For A Day Program:
The UF Office of Admissions would like to introduce their Gator for a Day shadowing program for high school juniors and seniors. This program has been established to give prospective students an in depth look into our campus and student life. Through this program, students will be able to experience the life of a Gator by spending an entire day with a current student ambassador. As you know, the most important aspect of the college search for students is finding a school that best fits their wants and needs. The Gator for a Day program helps students with this process by allowing them to learn more about our university on a more personal level. Accompanying parents or guardians can also experience the Gator Nation by taking a walking tour, visiting our museums, performance centers and more.
