Filling Out The Course Preference Form
Are You a Transfer Student?
Declaring Your Major
The course preference form is your opportunity to officially declare your major at FloridaSouthernCollege. This will be the major that our advisors will build your first semester schedule for based on the requirements for your major. If your major differs from the one you listed on your application for admission, your major will be updated unless it requires departmental permission or approval.
Have you already earned some college credit in high school such as AP, IB, AICE, or Dual Enrollment? Congrats! This is when you can share that information on the course preference form so that we know what you have earned. It is important to list all of your credit so you are not placed in classes you already earned credit for. Don’t forget we will still need your official test scores and/or transcripts to grant you credit. Dual enrollment credits can only be awarded by submitting the official transcripts from the college that awarded the credit.
Regardless of major, a Florida Southern College education is grounded in a general education curriculum that helps students acquire the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary for success. Courses in each category of the General Education Curriculum provide students the opportunity for meaningful achievement of key learning outcomes in three broad areas: (i) knowledge of the cultural and natural world, (ii) intellectual and practical skills, and (iii) personal and social responsibility.

The 2023-2024 catalog will be available later this summer, however, the current catalog can be a great resource.
The course preference form is designed for a student to declare their main, top choice major. If a student is interested in adding a second major or minor, they will have the opportunity to do so during their academic advising appointments with their assigned advisor at Orientation.
