    The application deadline for Spring 2018 is November 15, 2017. However, if you cannot meet the deadline, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to discuss an extension.

  3. What if I am close to graduating? 

    To earn a baccalaureate degree from FAU , students must earn the last 30 upper-division credits in residence at FAU. In programs requiring more than 120 credits, at least 25% of the total number of credits required for the degree must be earned in residence at FAU. If you have less than 30 upper division credits left to finish your degree requirements, we can offer you admissions as non-degree seeking student for Spring 2018, and you can then transfer back the credits to your home institution.

    If awarded the out of state tuition waiver, you will be able to attend FAU and pay in-state tuition and fees.
