Step 4: Submit Official Test Scores (Optional)

Flagler College strives to select students who display strong personal values, excellent citizenship, self-advocacy, and a commitment to the pursuit of knowledge above standardized testing. In light of this, please note the submission of test scores is optional (unless you are homeschooled). If you feel as though you meet our expectations as a driven student with personal integrity but know your scores do not adequately reflect your abilities, you may opt out of this section of the application.

If, on the other hand, you think your standardized test results accurately reflect your potential, test scores from the SAT and ACT can be submitted using the following school codes:

SAT – 5235 ACT - 0772

We also accept the CLT exam. CLT scores can be sent without a code directly from your account.

Step 5 : Complete the Essay

The essay question differs between the Flagler application and The Common Application.

You will be able to view the Common Application essay prompts as soon as you start their process.

Flagler’s essay prompt: Flagler College strives to admit students who will excel and reach their full potential during their college experience. Please provide an essay of at least 250 words that describes a single event or a single theme that defines your character and/or your aspirations.
