how to apply

The Wilkes Honors College accepts applications from students wishing to transfer from other colleges or universities. Students admitted to the Honors College typically have a cumulative college GPA of 3.5 or higher. The Honors College offers a variety of academic programs ranging from traditional disciplines like biology, economics, philosophy, and mathematics to interdisciplinary areas such as Latin American Studies and Law and Society. For further information about available academic programs as well as graduation requirements, please see the Academics section of our website. Transfer applicants are welcome to contact faculty members for more detailed information about our academic programs. Email addresses are available in the Faculty section of our website.

For application deadlines and a detailed description of the process, please go to the Transfer Students section on How to Apply. It is important that applicants send all official transcripts to Florida Atlantic University. Students with less than 30 post-high school credits also need to submit standardized test scores (SAT/ACT/CLT) and high school transcripts.

The Wilkes Honors College is a residential community and all incoming freshmen at the Honors College are required to live on campus for the first two years of their enrollment. Transfer students entering the Wilkes Honors College with a fully completed associate of arts degree, which they pursued after high school, need not live on campus.
