Academic Deadlines

Summer Residency Requirement

Students are required to complete nine hours of courses during the summer semester. They do not have to be taken at the same time or at Florida State/FAMU. However, summer courses must be taken at a public university in Florida.* Courses taken at a community college will NOT fulfill the summer residency requirement. Students admitted to the university with 60 hours or more are exempt from this requirement. Additionally, students who were admitted into the university PRIOR to July 1st, 2011 with at least 9 hours of accelerated credit ( AP, IB, dual enrollment) are exempt from this requirement. Requests for waivers of the summer residency requirement (for reasons of financial hardship/employment) must be approved by the Dean's Office.

*The following list are the Florida public universities that will "count" when meeting your summer residency requirement:

  • Florida State University
  • University of Florida
  • University of South Florida
  • University of West Florida
  • University of North Florida
  • Gulf Coast University
  • Florida A&M University
  • University of Central Florida
  • Florida Atlantic University
  • Florida International University
