International Deadlines

Applications, including all supporting materials and test scores, must be received by the dates below for consideration.

In addition to academic transcript and proof of English proficiency, Florida Atlantic University requires the SAT/ACT exam for admission for the 2021 admissions cycle. We know that gaining access to a testing center both in the US and abroad is a challenge. We make admissions decisions on a rolling basis, so whenever an applicant is able to complete their file, we will review.

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.

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.
