Admission Requirements

College of Business Limited-Access Programs

All undergraduate programs in the College of Business at Florida State University are designated as limited-access programs. Admission to these limited-access programs is based on the availability of faculty and space by discipline. For each admission cycle (academic year), a minimum grade point average (GPA) is established by the College of Business that limits enrollment to a number of students consistent with the available faculty and space. Students must complete all admissions requirements by the end of their 5th term of enrollment. Students transferring to Florida State University from any other institution are expected to have all admissions requirements completed at the time of transfer.

  • Must be admitted to Florida State University.
  • Must have completed at least 52 semester credit hours.
