High School Counselors

Thank you for being an irreplaceable resource in your students’ college search. We want to see them succeed at Flagler, so your insights and feedback are - and always will be - extremely valuable to our efforts.

Below you will find some commonly asked questions and helpful links to assist you and your students through our application and enrollment process.

Commonly Asked Questions

How can my students apply?

Students are welcome to complete the freshman application or international application found on our website, but Flagler College is also a member of the Common Application. We do not have a preference, and ultimately encourage students to complete the application that will work best for them.

What is the academic profile of your average student?

Flagler College evaluates students on an individual and holistic basis. The following academic profile represents the mean of admitted students from last year. Although these numbers provide a good range to aim for, they do not represent minimum requirements or cut-off points for admission. *

Coastal Environmental Science majors and Finance majors must have a minimum of 21 in the Math section of the ACT or 500 in the Math section of the SAT in order to be considered for admission.

Please keep in mind this GPA is a weighted, core GPA as electives are not considered in our calculations.

You are welcome to complete a Secondary School Report or simply write a letter. The student is also encouraged to obtain a written recommendation from any high school teacher if you are unable to speak on the student’s behalf. The teacher may use the same submission methods listed above.

How do I submit their test scores?

We recommend all students submit their test scores electronically through the corresponding website, such as CollegeBoard or ACT. Our SAT code is 5235 and our ACT code is 0772. International students may also submit the IELTS or TOEFL. If students are unable to submit scores electronically due to financial constraints, we may be able to accept test scores using an alternate method. If you, as the counselor, can send us the full score report PDF via email, we can count that as official for the student’s application.

How do I submit their transcript?

Flagler accepts transcripts through CommonApp and SENDedu. Transcripts may also be faxed to 904.819.6466, emailed to Admissions@Flagler.edu as a PDF or JPG attachment, or mailed to the following address:

Flagler College

74 King Street

St. Augustine, FL 32084

Please keep in mind that for domestic applicants, the Office of Admissions only requires one transcript: the final, official high school transcript with a printed date of graduation. During the application process, all students are required to submit the SSAR (Self-reported Student Academic Record) in lieu of submitting a transcript.

Back To Top
Can I help my students complete the Self-reported Student Academic Record (SSAR)?

You certainly can. We recommend watching our video tutorial as well as reading over the SSAR Frequently Asked Questions to familiarize yourself with this part of the application. Please note: We cannot accept SSAR codes. Applicants can only attach their SSAR using a link provided in an email sent by the Office of Admissions. International students or students who have already graduated high school will not need to submit the SSAR.

Back To Top
How should my student decline their offer of admission if they have made other college plans?

We would greatly appreciate an email or a phone call from the student to let us know that they have made plans elsewhere. This will allow us to deactivate their Flagler record and continue working with families and students still considering Flagler College as an option for their education.

Back To Top
If my student would like to commit to Flagler, what is the deposit deadline?

Early Decision

Early Decision students must submit their enrollment deposit and electronic enrollment forms no later than January 15th.

Regular Decision 

Regular Decision students will need to submit their deposit payment and enrollment forms no later than May 1st.

Enrollment forms are emailed to students and their parents a few days after they receive their acceptance letter in the mail. If we receive forms, but no payment, the student is not considered Deposited (and vice versa).

How can my student earn advanced or transfer credit through programs like AP, IB, AICE, or dual-enrollment?

Students seeking advanced credit are responsible for submitting all official college transcripts, CLEP, IB, AICE, or AP score reports, and for confirming their level of advanced standing prior to registering for classes at Flagler.

Chart for how advanced and transfer credit for AP, IB, Cambridge, and Dual Enrollment is determined (pdf). 

Dual-Enrollment

Applicants who are still in high school, but are taking dual-enrollment courses, should still apply as a freshman student when considering the college application.

Transfer credits will generally be granted for courses in which a grade of “C” (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better was earned from regionally accredited institutions. Quality points earned for transfer credits are not used in computing a student’s grade point average at Flagler. Students who have successfully completed the requirements for an A.A. degree may transfer up to three courses in which a “D” grade was earned, provided the total number of transfer credits does not exceed 64 semester hours. The amount of transfer credit and advanced standing allowed by the College will be determined by the Registrar. In some instances, the department chair is consulted prior to awarding transfer credits. In accordance with the ICUF (Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida) Articulation Agreement, Flagler College, as a member of ICUF, provides some basic guarantees to transfer students who have earned an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree from any member institution of the State of Florida public university system. This guarantee includes the transfer of 60 credits to be applied toward the awarding of the baccalaureate degree and completion of the general education requirements at Flagler College.
