At Florida State University we want to give students the information, skills and habits of mind that will enable them to fulfill their promise as individuals and as members of the community. The Division of Undergraduate Studies works to help students develop sound academic preparation for their major field of study and to encourage all undergraduate students to achieve their full potential.
It is the mission of the Division of Undergraduate Studies to assure that each undergraduate student at the Florida State University receives a strong educational foundation on which to build a successful academic program of studies. With this as our mission, the Division
