#FSU23 Congratulations to our accepted first-year students!

Close to 57,000 first-year students have submitted applications to Florida State University – an increase of 11.9 percent over last year’s record number of total applications received. Early Thursday evening, students could log in to their FSU Application Status Check page and learn their admission status. As is tradition, the Office of Admissions stay open until 9 pm to answer any questions from students and their family members as they learn their admission decisions.

FSU was able to offer admission to 19,230 students representing every county in Florida and from 49 different states. The University saw a 41 percent increase in applications from out of state and the admit rate for non-Florida residents is 19.5 percent. Twenty-three percent of our admitted students will be the first in their family to attend college. The Class of 2023 is expected to be approximately 6,200 first-year in college students.

Applications for early notification increased by 18.9% from last year.

The quality of the University's applicant pool remained very strong and saw a slight increase in the overall accepted student profile which includes fall, summer and CARE admits. The mid-range for accepted students was 4.0-4.5 academic core GPA; 27-32 ACT score, and 1250-1380 SAT score.

This year's admitted freshmen have diverse academic interests, with their most popular majors being Biological Sciences, Business, Engineering, and Psychology. Ten percent of the admitted students selected Exploratory (undecided) in lieu of a specific academic major.

All admitted students have until May 1 to confirm their enrollment.

Anticipation among applicants had been building for weeks leading up to decision day. Once decisions were released, newly admitted students were treated to a new "Welcome Home" video (below), and celebrated online posting photos and videos using #NowANole.
