What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Housing fills up fast! Apply early and reserve your spot in the dorms.
Makala from Polk City, FL
BE prepared to be inspired.
Brittany from Auburndale, FL
If you're not serious about science, don't bother.
Future Student
Be ready to study tech. Make sure that you really enjoy it, because there aren't any majors that are unrelated to STEM for you to switch into should you change your mind. Also remember that FL Poly isn't accredited yet, so the FAFSA is a no-go, but they say that you can send a copy to them and they'll see what they can do. Bright Futures will be you're friend if you are a Florida resident, because they can and will accept that.
Veronica from Land o Lakes, FL
Students coming into Florida Poly should have a good background in math and science preferably Precalculus and or Calculus, Physics, and Chemistry. Students coming in should have a mindset to not procrastinate. They should also come ready and willing to learn.
Nigel from Lakeland, FL
Set your study habits ahead of time. Classes aren't hard, per se, but it is a rigorous program and can be a little overwhelming if you don't have good time management and study skills. There are a lot of help opportunities on campus though and professors are always willing to help out so don't let that freak you out.
Guest from Poly City
I would suggest that students who live far away from the campus, look for housing near or on campus. It would be very difficult traveling to Florida Poly everyday for class if you did not live close.
Gabriela from Rockledge, FL
Some scholarships and financial prospects are not applicable due to the lack of accreditation.
Tyler
Be prepared
Tyler from Minneola, FL
Be prepared for a bit of geeky-ness. There's a higher concentration here and it shows.
Isabel from Cooper City, FL
