Summer and Fall 2023 applicants:

Your first-year application for admission to Florida Atlantic University is an application for admission and  merit-based scholarships. Decisions are issued approximately 4-6 weeks from the time all application materials are submitted and the application is considered complete.

 

All applicants be advised:

The application deadline means ALL application materials must be received by the deadline. An application is complete once all official transcripts are received. Please keep in mind that when sending transcripts, electronic transcripts take 5-7 days to be received.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, therefore students are advised to apply early for full consideration for admission and for scholarships. Decisions are issued approximately 4 weeks from the time all application materials are submitted and the application is considered complete. Based on the competitiveness of the applicant pool, an applicant may be offered admission to a term other than the requested entry term on the application. Our admitted student profiles and entrance programs can be viewed here.


Please keep in mind that when requesting electronic transcripts from other institutions, it may take 5-7 business days for FAU to receive the requested items.
