Spring Admission

FAU admits a limited number of students for full-time enrollment in the spring term. There are options available for students who would like to get a jump start on college courses or get acclimated to the college environment before enrolling in the spring semester.

Can I stay engaged in my learning the summer and fall terms?

Florida residents can take classes at one of the 28 public community and state colleges of Florida and out-of-state students can enroll in their local state/community college in the summer and/or fall. Please keep in mind the following requirements:

  • Student cannot attempt more than 11 college credits between the summer and fall semesters.
  • Student must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or better.
  • Student must submit official transcripts for ALL institutions attended to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
  • Failure to meet these requirements will cause the students admissions file to be reevaluated and could jeopardize their admissions status.

Global Owls Program

The Global Owls Program is an incredible opportunity to earn college credit while studying abroad in the fall semester. This program offers a fully transferable, globally focused semester to help achieve a more rewarding first year of college.

This invite-only overseas program, through Verto Education, is designed to prepare students for a successful start as an admitted student at Florida Atlantic. The curriculum helps students gain life experience and academic success as they explore the globe with other FAU-bound students. And it will set students up to be on track to graduate from FAU on time.
