How to Apply

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 our part of the selection process works:

  • 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.

Our Decision Plans

Early Decision Plan

Is Flagler College your first choice? The Admissions Committee gives preference to students who have selected Flagler as their top 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.

These applications will be reviewed before Regular Decision applications.

Dates you need to know for the Early Decision application:

Deadlines and Notifications
November 1st  Early Decision Application Due 
December 15th  Notification of Admission Decision 
January 15th  Enrollment Deposit Due for ED Applicants 

This agreement is binding, which means 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 January 15.

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

Regular Decision Plan

For students who are unsure of their first choice college or university, the Flagler offers a Regular Decision Plan with a deadline of March 1. If you apply under the Regular Decision Plan, you understand that Early Decision applicants are given preference as the fall class is selected

Admission for Spring Semester
