Transfer Student Services


Transfer students make up about half of our undergraduate student population and bring with them a valuable set of diverse experiences that will enhance the FAU community. Transfer Student Services embraces those experiences by supporting transfer students through their pre-admission processes, pre-advising and transition academic advising needs, as well as facilitating student connection to on-campus resources.

At FAU there is an office dedicated to assisting transfer students through their transition. The Transfer Student Services Center team is here to help you through your FAU experience. Our TSS staff has transfer-specific application advising, pre-admission advising, as well as various transfer student involvement opportunities for you to utilize through your transition.
