I sent in my Leadership Development Program or Leadership Course a few days ago. Why have I not heard back yet?
Please allow a minimum of two weeks for the approval of a Leadership Development Program and/or a Leadership Course. Please send questions about this to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Can I use the same experience for more than one leadership learning activity (i.e. development, education, engagement)?

I'm a transfer student. Does my previous Leadership experience count towards GGSS?
Leadership Engagement activities that occur post-high school graduation and during the student's tenure to obtain their current undergraduate degree (and meet all other listed criteria) will be approved. This includes leadership roles outside of FSU and/or at other institutions.
I'm a student veteran. Does my role within the military fulfill criteria for the Leadership Engagement area of GGSS?
If an FSU student is still actively involved in the military while completing his or her undergraduate degree, that student may count their military experience towards the leadership sub-area of Leadership Engagement.
