COLLEGE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
State colleges have an "open door" admissions process. To be eligible for admission to a state college, a student must earn a standard high school diploma or its equivalent (General Educational Development – GED – or adult high school diploma) or demonstrate success in college coursework.
Florida offers an additional opportunity for admissions to a state university for students who do not meet the minimum requirements.
- The Talented Twenty (T20) Program is a state university admissions category that guarantees you admission into a state university (not necessarily the university of your choice) if you:
- Graduate with a standard diploma from a Florida public high school
- Rank in the top 20% of your graduating class
- Complete all 18 college prep credits required for state university admission
- Take the ACT or SAT (no minimum score)
- Be eligible for college-level coursework in all areas (i.e., Meet Board of Governors college level competency per Board Regulation 6.008
- Students with intellectual disabilities who have exited high school are eligible to apply to attend a Florida Postsecondary Comprehensive Transition Program (FPCTP). Students apply directly to the institution with a FPCTP. Find approved programs.
