Here are answers to questions about application requirements and deadlines for first-year students.
1. Submit the Common Application (including the section under the “My Colleges” tab). Please note: New College does not require you to complete the “Courses & Grades” section on the Common App. You will be entering your Courses/Grades information via the SSAR instead (see #4).
2. One Letter of Recommendation
3. $30 Nonrefundable Fee or Fee Waiver Request
Choose from the following:
4. Complete your Self-reported Student Academic Record, or SSAR (after you complete the Common App, you will receive an email with a customized link to your Applicant Status page and the SSAR website). Please note: applicants who have completed a high school curriculum not patterned after the U.S. system, or those earning a GED should not complete the SSAR.
5. Standardized Test Results (SAT or ACT)*
*We are unable to accept faxed standardized test scores as official.
Disability Accommodation in Admission
In the case of applicants with disabilities, the College will grant reasonable substitution or modification of any admission requirement pursuant to Florida Board of Governors Regulation 6.018 where the Dean of Enrollment Services determines, based on evidence submitted by the applicant and through consultation with the College’s Disabilities Services Coordinator, that the failure of the applicant to meet the requirement is due to his or her disability, and does not constitute a fundamental alteration in the nature of the College’s academic program.
New College will consider this information within the following guidelines:
The 2020 application is open!
Early Decision (binding) for Fall 2020:
Application deadline: November 1, 2019
Student notification: December 15, 2019
Student reply/deposit: No later than January 15, 2020
Priority Application (non-binding) for Fall 2020:
Priority Application deadline: March 1, 2020
Final application deadline: July 1, 2020
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.
