Deadlines & Selection Process

Selection Process

College selection is a two-way street. You want to select the best college for your needs, and we want to select the students who help us meet our mission of education, career preparation, and support of informed, responsible citizenship.

Here’s how we’ll work through our part of the selection process:

  • We’ll look at your high school transcripts and test scores.
  • We’ll look at your extracurricular activities to understand more about you.
  • We’ll ask you to express yourself in an essay.
  • We’ll ask you to share recommendations from others.
  • Early Decision Plan

    The Admissions Committee gives preference to students who have selected Flagler as their first choice college. To identify these students, the College has developed a voluntary Early Decision Plan for freshmen and transfers who are applying for the fall semester.

    • If you choose to apply under this option, you’re declaring to us that Flagler College is your first choice!
    • Your application will be acted upon before those who choose to apply under the Regular Decision Plan.

    Enrollment Deposit Due for ED Applicants

    Students admitted under the Early Decision Plan are required to withdraw applications submitted to other colleges and to confirm their decision to attend Flagler by remitting an advance deposit of $200 and completed enrollment forms by January 15. Advance deposits are credited to the student’s tuition and fees and are non-refundable.

    In addition to the advance deposit, boarding students are required to remit a $200 deposit as a room reservation fee. This fee is also due on May 1.

    Boarding students may submit a single check for $400 to cover both the advance deposit and the room reservation fee, rather than submitting two separate checks.

    For students unable to make the commitment required under the Early Decision Plan, the College offers a Regular Decision Plan with a deadline of March 1. If you apply under the Regular Decision Plan:

    • You’ll be notified on or before March 31, but after Early Decision applicants.
    • You understand that Early Decision applicants are given preference as the fall class is selected.

Admission to Spring Semester

For students applying for the spring semester, the Office of Admissions begins notifying applicants on a rolling basis after the fall class has closed and continues admitting students until the class is filled.

Space for the January semester can be quite limited, and students desiring on-campus housing are advised to complete their applications early.
