A student who has never been admitted to and enrolled in a degree program at Florida Memorial University nor any other post-secondary institution of higher education is considered a First-Time Freshman student. This includes dual enrollment students who have not yet graduated from high school. Florida Memorial University utilizes a holistic approach to admission which includes academic history, extracurricular activities, volunteer service, and an optional admission essay.
A student’s high school preparation should include units in the following core areas:
High School Graduation: Graduated from an accredited high school or the equivalent GED is required.
Grade Point Average: A minimum high school cumulative grade point average of 2.4 is required. Students who have a high school cumulative grade point average which places them in the top twenty percent of their graduating class, and who complete the high school course distribution requirements as specified below, shall be given automatic admission to Florida Memorial University.
Applicants should submit SAT or ACT scores. Test scores are also used for advisement and placement purposes for first-time-in-college applicants.
