    Students should complete a rigorous curriculum at Hollywood Hills High and apply to more than one university to increase their chance for acceptance.

    To qualify to enter one of Florida’s public universities, a first-time-in-college Hollywood Hills High School graduate must meet the following minimum requirements:

    • High school graduation with a standard diploma
    • Admission test scores
    • 16 credits of college preparatory academic courses – see Bright Futures requirements (FAS and FMS)
    • 2 approved electives

    Florida State universities calculate the high school GPA using a 4.0 scale from grades earned at Hollywood Hills High academic core courses (additional weights may be assigned for grades in AP, dual enrollment, honors, and other advanced courses).

    Although the potential for academic success is primary, many other factors may be considered in reviewing a student’s application for admission.  These may include, but are not limited to, a combination of test scores and GPA that indicates potential for success, improvement in high school record, family educational background, socioeconomic status, graduation from a low-performing high school, graduation from an IB program, geographic location, military service, special talents or abilities, or other special circumstances.


    Florida universities also have minimum test scores and GPA requirements.  Want to know where you fit in?
