You should apply as a transfer if you have (or will be) enrolled in any college course work after the date of your high school graduation.
Each year, approximately 10-15 percent of New College’s enrollment is comprised of students who transferred here from other colleges and universities around the country.
They appreciate the fact that New College’s 10:1 student-to-faculty allows for an intimate academic environment, encouraging intellectual freedom and a greater opportunity to be personally involved in designing their own education. Of course, our waterfront location and year-round warm temperatures are not bad enticements either.

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:
*Use of Social Security Numbers: The New College Office of Admissions and Financial Aid collects and uses Social Security numbers (SSNs) as necessary for the performance of the College’s duties and responsibilities, taking appropriate measures to secure SSNs from unauthorized access.

All students who meet this deadline will receive a decision by April 1, 2017, however, some students will receive their decision sooner. We will continue to accept applications on a rolling basis (and students will receive their decisions on a rolling basis) until July 1, 2017.

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.
