What requirements (outside of the Engagement Area criteria and Synthesis) must be satisfied in order for a student to be recognized as a Garnet and Gold Scholar?
Your student conduct record, cumulative GPA, and University graduation application will be checked your final semester at FSU. Effective for Summer 2021 graduates and beyond, you must have a GPA of 3.2 for ALL college coursework attempted. If you have a student conduct record, you must complete all outcomes from the Department of Student Conduct and Community Standards and be in good standing with the University to receive clearance for the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society. To become an inducted member, you must also officially apply for graduation.
Do I have a chance to clear any student conduct violations?
If you have a student conduct record with the Department of Student Conduct and Community Standards, you must complete all outcomes and be in good standing with the University to be inducted into GGSS. If you are on disciplinary probation, you are still eligible for induction if you have completed all outcomes.
What happens if I miss a deadline?
All deadlines must be strictly followed in order to successfully complete the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society. Any missed deadline may be appealed for an extension by completing the appeal form. Students are only allowed one appeal request during their participation in the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society.
