Admissions Requirements

As stated in Florida Board of Governors Regulation 6.002 a First Time In College (FTIC) student may be admitted if he/she has a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or higher on a 4.00 scale as calculated by the university, and presents official SAT Reasoning Test and/or ACT Plus Writing scores.

The SAT or ACT is required of all State University System FTIC applicants.

Transfer applicants must have a cumulative minimum GPA of 2.0 as well as a minimum GPA of 2.0 and be in good standing as a degree-seeking student at the last institution attended to be considered for admission to Florida Poly. All college transfer applicants with fewer than 60 credit hours of acceptable credit must minimally meet freshman high school unit entrance requirements, the high school academic GPA, and minimum test score requirements.

Admission to the University is limited by space availability. The degree of competition for space depends on the number and qualifications of those who apply for admission. To increase the chance of admission, students should present credentials that are stronger than the minimum requirements for consideration. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the number that the University is able to enroll, a waiting list will be established.

As a Florida State University, the minimum state university requirements and test placement information is available in Regulation 6.002.  For more information about the State University Regulations are available at
