The Catalog


The 2018-2019 edition of the Catalog includes essential information about Flagler College. The institution's history, purpose, distinctive characteristics, as well as student life and academic programs, are described. Additionally, prospective students will find information pertaining to admission, tuition and fees, and financial aid. On the basis of the information included, it should be possible for an interested student to gain insight into the character and nature of the institution; however, prospective students and their parents are encouraged to visit the campus in order to gain firsthand information about the College.

The provisions of this Catalog are for information purposes only and do not constitute an irrevocable contract between Flagler College and the student. While the College will endeavor to adhere to the announcements, rules, regulations, policies, and procedures, as set forth in the Catalog, it reserves the right to make changes in such areas as course offerings, degree requirements, regulations, procedures, and charges for tuition and fees, at any time, without prior notice. The College also reserves the right to cancel programs, majors, and courses due to insufficient enrollment.

Students are responsible to know and abide by all academic policies, regulations, and procedures, as set forth in the Catalog and the Student Handbook. Members of the faculty and staff are available to meet with students for counsel and guidance, but students are ultimately responsible for making course selections, meeting degree requirements, and satisfying other provisions for continuation and graduation.
