The 2020 application is open!

If you know New College is your top choice, you may want to apply for Early Decision. Early Decision is the application process in which students make a commitment to a first-choice institution where, if admitted, they definitely will enroll.
If you chose ‘Early Decision’ as your preferred admission plan and are accepted to New College under the Early Decision plan, you must withdraw applications you have submitted to other colleges and universities and make no additional applications to any other university in any country. Please note: If you are an Early Decision candidate and seeking financial aid, you do not need to withdraw other applications until you have received notification about financial aid from our office.
*All required materials must be received by New College Admissions in order to receive a decision. Please plan ahead to make sure we get all of your materials on time!
For more information, please review New College’s transfer credit policy.
The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid can arrange an unofficial projection of transfer credit. For official award of transfer credit to an enrolling student, New College of Florida needs a final official transcript from each previously attended institution. (Grade reports and unofficial transcripts are not acceptable for this purpose.)
A final official transcript from each previously attended institution should be sent directly to the New College of Florida Office of Admissions and Financial Aid.
