Admitted Student Visiting Days Registration: Spring 2022
The purpose of Admitted Student Visiting Days is to introduce you to the Florida State University College of Law community on a regular class day. We have created visit options for admitted students that include a meeting with the Office of Admissions, a tour of the College of Law, and a visit to a College of Law class on Mondays and Thursdays. If these options do not work for you, please get in touch with us and we will see if we can arrange another option for you.
Please request your visit as far in advance as possible and ideally no less than one week before planning to arrive at the College of Law. Please understand that visit requests submitted during non-business hours or during the weekend will be responded to during normal business hours (M-F, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.).
In order to limit potential exposure to COVID-19, all visitors will be expected to wear a face covering indoors, and each scheduled date and time option will be limited to four admitted students. If the date and time you select is unavailable, we will reach out to you to identify an alternate date and time before planning your visit. In addition, admitted students may bring no more than two visitors with them for their visit, and only the admitted student will be permitted to sit in on the College of Law class.
Once the specific date and time are scheduled by the Admissions Office, we will confirm the details with you by e-mail.
Admitted Student Preview Day: March 31 & April 1
Preview Day will be a full-day, large scale open house-style event for admitted students and their guests, held on April 1, 2022. Attendees will hear from the dean of the College of Law, learn what to expect in the 1L year from some of the 1L professors, attend a small group session with current students about "life as a law student," enjoy local cuisine during lunch with current students and faculty, participate in a mock class, and take a tour of the law school. A detailed schedule will be sent by email in the spring along with a link to register.
We will kick off our Preview Day the night before, on March 31, with a reception in Tallahassee from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. You will get the opportunity to mix and mingle with current law students, alumni, law professors, and administrators as well as your fellow admitted students while enjoying light hors d’oeuvres and beverages!
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.
