Class of 2020

Did you know....

A high school dropout makes on average $19,000 a year, a high school graduate makes $28,000 a year, a college graduate makes $51,000 a year. Over the course of a career, a college grad will make nearly $1 million more than a highschool graduate.


That's a lot of money!

University Applications

All universities have a Priority Admissions Deadline for receipt of completed freshman applications. The Directors of Admissions in the Florida State University System emphasize the importance of meeting all deadlines in the freshman application process. Applicants should check the status of each application often and pay close attention to the details of the admissions process specific to each institution. It is the responsibility of the applicant to meet all deadlines. Online applications can take up to 48 hours to officially be received by the Admissions Offices, so don't wait to the last minute of a deadline to submit the application.
