Flagler College is a four year, independent, non-sectarian institution offering programs leading to the baccalaureate degree.  The College is coeducational and residential with an enrollment of approximately 2,600 students.  Flagler has chosen to remain a small college to ensure that its students are afforded the opportunity to receive a more personal and individual education.

The principal focus of Flagler’s academic program is undergraduate education in selected liberal and pre-professional studies.  The College strives to provide its students with a quality education that is well-rounded, career-oriented, and enduring.  To this end, the College offers a sound combination of the liberal arts, specialized areas of study, and learning experiences outside of the classroom.  Our most popular programs include Business Administration, Education, Communication, Psychology, Graphic Design and Sport Management.

Founded in 1968, the College was established as a memorial to Henry M. Flagler, industrialist, oil magnate, land developer, and railroad pioneer.  Flagler was a co-founder of Standard Oil and the single most pivotal figure in Florida’s development. The centerpiece of our campus is the former Hotel Ponce de Leon, a grand resort built in 1888 by Mr. Flagler.

Location: The Flagler campus is located four miles from the Atlantic Ocean, in historic downtown St. Augustine, with shops, restaurants, and the waterfront only a short walk away.  St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city and a favorite tourist destination with a population of 15,000, lies just east of I-95 on the northeast coast, 35 miles south of Jacksonville and 55 miles north of Daytona Beach.

Interested students may submit an application any time after the completion of the junior year in high school; however, it is recommended that students wait until the fall of their senior year. Early Decision applicants must submit an application by the 1st of November (with a notification date of December 15th) and Regular Decision applicants have until the 1st of March (with a notification beginning January 15th until the class is filled).

The most surprising aspect of the Flagler experience is that it is offered at a cost that is almost half that of comparable private colleges and on par with most large public universities.  That’s why Flagler College is consistently recognized by a variety of respected publications and journals as being one of the best college values in the nation.  Tuition, fees, room and board total $24,960 for the 2013-2014 academic year.  More than 85% of Flagler students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships, grants, loans, and part-time employment.
