Deadlines & Selection Process
Flagler’s process of student selection is not solely determined by a matrix of GPA’s and test scores. Our goal in the admissions process is to identify those students who appear most likely to benefit from and contribute to the academic and student life programs of our College. To meet our goal, your extracurricular activities, your essay and your recommendations are an essential part of the selection process.
Early Decision Plan
In the selection process, the Admissions Committee gives preference to students who have selected Flagler as their first choice college. To identify these students, the College has developed an Early Decision Plan for freshmen and transfers who are applying for the fall semester. The Early Decision Plan is a voluntary option for applicants to declare that Flagler is their first choice college. Students who elect to apply under this option understand that their application will be acted upon before those who choose to apply under the Regular Decision Plan. The deadline to submit an application under the Early Decision Plan is the 1st of November and formal notification will be sent in writing on or before the 15th of December.
Early Decision Application Due
Notification of Admission Decision
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 the 15th of January. In addition to the advance deposit, boarding students are required to remit a $200 deposit as a room reservation fee. Boarding students may submit a single check for $400, rather than submitting two separate checks. Advance deposits are credited to the student’s tuition and fees and are non-refundable.
Regular Decision Plan
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 1st. Regular Decision applicants are notified after the Early Decision applicants and understand that Early Decision candidates are given preference as the fall class is selected. Formal notification of admission for Regular Decision candidates with completed applications will be sent out on or before March 31st.

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.
