Admitted Students Preview Day 2024

Preview Day will be a full-day, large-scale, open house-style event for up to 200 admitted students and their guests, held on April 5, 2024. 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.

We will kick off our Preview Day the night before, on April 4, with a reception in Tallahassee beginning at 5:30 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!



Campus Videos

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.
