1 Many graduate programs have earlier deadlines than the University-wide published dates. Contact the individual program or department for the applicable admission deadline. Programs that use the University-wide dates may have earlier deadlines for financial-award consideration.

2 Includes the Tallahassee Community College/Florida State University Cooperative Program and the Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University/Florida State University Interinstitutional Registration Program.

*All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the published deadline. If the University deadline falls on a weekend, applicants have until the following Monday to submit applications and all supporting documents. Additionally, the University reserves the right to close admission earlier if warranted by enrollment limitations. Deadlines for applications and supporting documents at the FSU Panama City Campus are typically one month prior to the start of each term. Further information on the Panama City campus is available at http://www.pc.fsu.edu.
