To our partners in the guidance community:
We know this is a particularly busy time for guidance offices and we appreciate your time and energy. This page includes important FSU updates and announcements that we hope will help you in your work with prospective college students at your school.
The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education (DHE) has recently added new minimum course requirements for high school students:
- Beginning in fall 2016, all students must complete at least four years of college-preparatory mathematics. At least one of these mathematics courses must be completed during the final year of high school.
- Beginning in fall 2017, all students must complete at least three years of college-preparatory science courses which include a lab.

The largest major at Framingham State continues to be business administration (16% of all students), followed by consumer sciences (13%), and the coordinate majors in Early Childhood and Elementary Education (12%). The University offers 17 additional majors in the professional and liberal arts and science areas. Some of our newest majors include Environmental Science and Criminology.
In September 2011, the University opened a new 410-bed residence hall that features suite-style living and semi-private baths, representing a housing option very popular among today’s college students.
Framingham State has initiated a required first-year student seminar program that helps first-year students make a successful transition to college life inside and outside of the classroom.
