Schedule a Visit
Admitted Student Visiting Days Registration: Summer 2022
During the summer months admitted students may schedule a tour with the Office of Admissions between May 16, 2022 and July 29, 2022 during normal business hours (M-F, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm) with the exception of the following dates:
- Memorial Day: May 30, 2022
- Student Examination Period: June 27, 2022 – July 1, 2022

If you are an admitted student you can e-mail the Office of Admissions directly to schedule your tour. In your request please provide your preferred date and time. If the date and time you request is unavailable, we will reach out to you to identify an alternate date and time before planning your visit. You may bring visitors with you, but we request that you limit visitors to no more than two individuals, as we may be scheduling more than one admitted student per tour.
Please understand that visit requests submitted during non-business hours, on weekends, or during holiday periods will be responded to when we return to the office and during normal business hours (M-F, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm). Once the specific date and time are scheduled by the Admissions Office, we will confirm the details with you by e-mail.
Until you are able to visit the College of Law in person, we wanted to provide you with some opportunities to view the law school virtually. We look forward to you joining us in person soon!

Non-Resident Reclassification Information
Most non-residents are eligible to reclassify to in-state status for tuition purposes after the first year. The requirements for establishing residency in the state of Florida are set by the Florida Legislature. View the reclassification requirements. Documents establishing residency must be obtained PRIOR to the first day of classes of the first semester in order to meet the minimum requirement of 12 months prior to the term seeking reclassification (i.e. first semester of the 2L year). The only exception to the 12 month timeframe is the date on the letter from the Florida Bar. See the Out of State Residency Reclassification Checklist below for additional details.
United States Military Veterans
Florida State University makes available programs and services to current and former members of the U.S. military. The FSU Student Veterans Center offers assistance with and certification of all educational benefits provided by the VA and DoD. Also, an on-campus orientation session exclusively for veterans and active duty personnel is conducted a few days before the start of the Fall semester. Information on these and other veteran-support programs is available at veterans.fsu.edu.
State and federal law extends out-of-state tuition waivers to students who are honorably discharged veterans of the United States Armed Forces, The United States Reserve Forces, the National Guard or eligible veteran dependents using VA educational benefits, regardless of these students’ state of residency, as long as they physically reside in Florida during their time in school. For additional information, view the Veteran out of State Waiver information below.
