How to Apply

The Common App

FIRST YEAR STUDENTS

1. COMPLETE THE COMMON APP

Add Wilkes Honors College of FAU, under the "My Colleges" tab.

Wilkes Honors College does not require you to complete the “Courses and Grades” section on the Common App. Instead, you will submit your courses and grades through the SSAR. (Self-reported Student Academic Record) (see step 2)

Note: If you have already applied using FAU’s application, you do not need to submit a Common App. Instead, please send an email to hcadmissions@fau.edu to let us know you would also like to be considered for admission to the Wilkes Honors College. Similarly, if you are applying through the Common App and want to also apply to the main campus in Boca Raton, you will be able to indicate this on the Common App’s school-specific questionnaire. You do not need to submit a second application.

2. CREATE YOUR SSAR

(Self-reported Student Academic Record)

You will receive an application acknowledgement email from FAU (2-3 business days) including instructions to check your application status.

For SSAR, go to appstatus.fau.edu and click on the SSAR option. After entering SSAR credentials submit it to link it to your Wilkes Honors College of FAU application.
