What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
Being an Honors College, it might get tough, but the classes never promote rote memorization for success. Instead, students are expected to reach a deeper understanding on the course material, making the rigor completely worth it.

There wasn't any con in the info session about the way they do academics here.
MICHAEL from Clearwater, FL
Classes are all about your individual effort. The teachers here are as different as the students. They teach in interesting ways, but almost all of it pivots on your interest and desire to succeed. New College has no grades, it is a pass fail system. But, the narrative evaluation at the end really enlightens you as to your weak points and strong points. It lets you know how you, as a student, are viewed. It is challenging, but well worth it.
Caitlin from Deltona, FL
New College of Florida is the honors college of the state of Florida. The academics here are thereby extremely challenging. Although we don't use a grading system, delineating A, B, C etc., we do use a teacher evaluation system. Basically instead of getting a letter that tells you how you did in the class, you get a whole essay, saying what you did great, how you can improve etc. You will receive grades on tests and papers throughout the semester, just not a final grade for the class. Don't worry if you need a GPA for financial aid purposes, the school generates one for you based on your evaluations.
