Readmissions FAQs

Can I change my degree level?

Graduate students who wish to change degree levels (e.g., master's to doctoral or doctoral to master's) before earning the degree should not complete this form. 

Can I change my major in graduate school?

Graduate students who wish to change majors before completing the degree should complete a Change of Major form available at the Office of the Registrar. 

Can I enroll in more than one graduate program?

Graduate students wishing to dual enroll in more than one academic program at the same time should contact The Graduate School to complete a Dual Enrollment Request form. 

Non-Degree Seeking

 

Enrollment as a non-degree student is subject to approval by the Office of Admissions provided the student is in good academic standing at the last institution attended. Applicants who have been denied admission as a degree-seeking student or who missed the deadline for submitting a degree- seeking application will not be considered for enrollment as a non-degree student. 

Course registration is on a space-available basis and, in some cases, may require departmental approval. Coursework taken as a non-degree student carries no degree credit. Up to 12 semester hours earned as a graduate non-degree student may be applied toward a graduate degree only with the approval of the appropriate department chair and dean upon acceptance into a degree program (provided that a grade of "B" [3.0] or better has been achieved). Non-degree students must adhere to the same academic rules that applies to degree-seeking students (e.g., application deadlines, fees, drop/add, withdrawals, grading, retention policies, etc.). 

Students who subsequently decide to pursue a degree must submit the appropriate admission application. Enrollment as a non-degree student does not guarantee admission to the University as a degree-seeking student. All information used to make an admission decision must be received by the published deadline.

Transient Students

 

Transient status allows degree-seeking students enrolled at another institution to take courses which are not offered at their parent institution at Florida State University on a space-available basis. Students must be in good academic standing at their parent institution and (if previously enrolled) at Florida State. 

Transient applications may be submitted no earlier than one semester in advance of the term for which the applicant is seeking admission. Deadlines for each semester are as follows:
