How to Apply
FIRST YEAR STUDENTS
1. COMPLETE THE COMMON APP
Add Wilkes Honors College of FAU under the "My Colleges" tab.
Wilkes Honors College does not use 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: When considering both the main campus in Boca Raton and the Wilkes Honors College in Jupiter, students should submit only one application. If you have already applied through FAU's application, email email@example.com to request consideration for the Wilkes Honors College (include your name and Z#).
2. CREATE YOUR SSAR
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. For more information about SSAR click here.
3. SELF-REPORT YOUR TEST SCORES (SAT/ACT/CLT)
Self-report your test scores through the application status portal at appstatus.fau.edu.
Complete FAU's application and check the box that indicates that you would like to be considered for the Wilkes Honors College in Jupiter. To strengthen your Wilkes Honors College application, we encourage you to submit a résumé and/or academic research paper. E-Mail these supplemental materials to the Wilkes Honors College at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Students who have earned college credits while in high school apply as first-year students through the Common App (e.g. dual enrollment, AP credits, IB or AICE, etc.).
Students are encouraged to apply early for scholarship consideration.
