Coronavirus Information:

We are following this situation moment-by-moment and using the best information possible (i.e. CDC, State University System of Florida, location-specific information, etc.) in deciding to extend / change admission processes and deadlines.

As such, we have made the following changes:
  • The Freshman International Application deadline has been extended to May 1.
  • The deposit deadline for international applicants has been extended to June 1.
  • FAU will accept transcripts e-mailed from a counselor directly, or uploaded to your common application. If your situation does not allow for the following, we will accept copies of your documents for the time being. That being said, decisions will be on provisional basis until official documents are received.
  • FAU now accepts the Duolingo English Test (DET) as proof for English Language Proficiency. For more information on the test, please visit the Duolingo web site

We will notify you as soon as possible about any changes. Until then, stay informed, safe, and, especially, healthy. The health and safety of our community is paramount and this extends to our many visitors, future students, and families.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 561-297-3040 or e-mail
