Synthesis Reflection

What is the deadline for having my synthesis reflection approved by in order to have the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society appear on my transcript?

Each semester, the synthesis reflection must be submitted online for review by the posted dates on the homepage. This deadline only applies for the semester in which you are working to receive the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society recognition. More information about the synthesis reflection can be found here .

I have submitted all three Engagement Areas, but am still waiting on approval from my advisor. Why is my synthesis tab not available?

The synthesis tab will become available when:

  • All three Engagement Areas are approved or approved pending completion;
  • The administrator has verified your cumulative GPA is 2.75 or higher; and,
  • You have been cleared through the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities, with no Academic Honor Code violation.

What if my Overall Program Advisor leaves Florida State University prior to my completion of the program?

If your Overall Program Advisor leaves the university or can no longer participate as your advisor, you will be assigned a new Garnet and Gold Scholar Society Overall Program Advisor. If you would like to request a particular advisor, email the Program Administrator at garnetandgoldprogram@fsu.edu .
