for New Students


Welcome to Florida Southern!

We’re glad you’re joining the Florida Southern family, and we’re eager to introduce you to our beautiful campus and one-of-a-kind community.

Below you’ll find more information on the next steps you’ll need to take and ensure a smooth transition to FSC this spring. We can’t wait to see you on campus!

Spring Checklist

  • PAY YOUR ENROLLMENT DEPOSIT. Your enrollment deposit saves your place at Florida Southern, makes you eligible for scholarships and financial aid, and secures your residence hall room. The enrollment deposit is $500 if you plan to live on campus and $300 if you’ll commute. You may pay online or by phone at 1.800.274.4131. Pay your enrollment deposit 

  • FILE YOUR FAFSA (US Citizens). This form must be completed in order for students to be considered for need-based aid. Florida Southern College’s FAFSA code is 001488. Submit your FAFSA 

  • COMPLETE HOUSING APPLICATION & ENROLLMENT FORMS. Both commuters and residential students must complete the New Student Enrollment Forms 

  • SUBMIT DOCUMENTATION OF ALL PRIOR COLLEGE COURSE CREDIT. If you are currently enrolled in college—or if you’ve taken AP, CLEP, or IB courses—Florida Southern needs an original transcript from the school(s) where credit was earned.
