FRESHMAN APPLICANTS


In addition to the application, the following credentials are required:

1. Official secondary school transcripts and appropriate test scores: SAT with writing or the ACT with writing. All official transcripts, test scores, and any other required credentials must be received directly from the issuing agencies, through electronic platforms or mailed to P.O. Box 659003, Miami, FL. 33265-9003. It is the applicant’s responsibility to initiate the request for credentials to the issuing agencies and to assure their receipt by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. All scores and transcripts submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions become the property of FIU.

2. Proof of graduation from an accredited secondary school must be submitted before enrolling.

3. High School diplomas accepted for undergraduate degree-seeking admission to FIU must be completed at a secondary institution accredited by a regional accrediting body or at an institution accredited by a national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education.

4. Eighteen academic units in college preparatory courses are required as follows:

English 4
Mathematics 4
Natural Science 3
Social Science 3
Foreign Languages1 2
Academic Electives2 2


1Two units in the same foreign language are required.
2Academic Electives are from the fields of mathematics, English, natural science, social science, and a foreign language. The academic grade point average will be computed only on the units listed above. Grades in honors courses, International Baccalaureate (IB), Dual Enrollment, and advanced placement (AP) courses will be given additional weight.
Freshman admission decisions are made based on the student’s strong academic preparation. Competition for placement in the freshman class includes a review of all academic credentials and a completed file. Students may be offered an alternate term of entry and/or be placed into an exploratory major should they not meet criteria for the term for which they originally applied. Students may also be invited to submit additional documentation to be reviewed through a holistic process for an admissions decision. Applicants are encouraged to complete the MyMajorMatch assessment to match their interest with FIU majors, find an appropriate major, and explore possible careers.
Students who apply to majors in Theatre and Music, must be admitted to the appropriate exploratory major prior to receiving the approval of the respective department through an audition. Students should contact the specific department for audition dates.
Students who are denied admissions to FIU may request an additional review of their admissions application if improved academic information such as a new transcript with a higher grade point average or new test reports with a higher score are received. Students seeking further review of a denial decision or who are seeking alternative admission can submit such requests to the Admissions Petition and Appeals Committee. The admissions committee will not overturn a denial decision made by an academic department or reverse transfer credit equivalency decisions made by academic advisors or faculty.


Admission Petition and Appeals Committee
The Admission Petition and Appeals Committee reviews requests for appeals from those undergraduate applicants who have been denied admission to the university; excluding (a) those who have been denied by a department with a limited access program, unless the student is petitioning under a new major, or (b) those who have been denied by the Department of Conduct and Conflict Resolution. The committee consists of faculty, staff and administrators who review cases and determine a student’s potential for success at FIU. Students requesting an appeal or additional review of their admissions status must submit the following:
• A written statement from the student which includes:
- The student’s goals, educational and/or professional objectives.
- An explanation of past academic performance.
- Information and/or circumstances that may have affected past academic performance.
- Any other information the student wishes to have considered.
• At least one signed letter of recommendation from individuals who know of and can attest to the student’s academic ability and/or potential such as teacher, counselor, mentor, tutor, academic or career advisor, former employer, etc. Such letter(s) should not be a “form” letter, but directly address any deficiencies in the student’s academic history.
• Any new standardized test scores and updated academic transcripts or grades if applicable.

All supporting documents must be sent or delivered to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the address and arrive at least 72 hours in advance of the next available admissions committee meeting. The dates for the committee’s meetings are posted on the Undergraduate Admissions website at http://admissions.fiu.edu.
Students will be informed of the committee’s decision within two business days of its meeting. Please note: appeal review requests can only come from the applicant.

Statements and all materials should be sent to:
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
C/O Admission Appeals
11200 S.W. 8th Street (MMC), PC 140
Miami, FL 33199 or AdmissionsCommittee@fiu.edu

Alternative Admission Review
The Admission Petition and Appeals Committee also considers requests for holistic review of admissions applicants from undergraduate applicants who seek alternative admission according to Florida Board of Governors Sections 6.002 (2)(b) and 6.004 (4)(a). The FIU Board of Trustees established Regulation FIU-402 related to student admissions which allows for other factors such as the applicant’s creativity, talent, and character to be considered in addition to academic ability. Students should follow the same directions stated above for Admission Appeals.

TRANSFER APPLICANTS

Degree seeking applicants with fewer than 30 transferrable semester hours must meet the same requirements as beginning freshmen applicants. Applicants with more than 30 transferrable semester hours must have a 2.0 GPA, be in good standing at their prior institution and have successfully completed at least one college-level English and one college level math class with a “C” or higher.
Applicants who receive an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a Florida State College or State University in Florida will be considered for admission without restriction except for published limited access programs within the University. We encourage all transfer applicants to apply for admissions at least one semester prior to the term they wish to enroll.
Students transferring from independent Florida and out-of-state colleges into the University’s upper division must have maintained a minimum 2.0 grade point average based upon a 4.0 scale (with the exception of some limited access programs) and be in good academic standing at the last institution.
Coursework transferred or accepted for credit toward an undergraduate degree must be completed at an institution accredited as degree-granting by a regional accrediting body or at an institution accredited as degree granting by a national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education that participates in the statewide course numbering system at the time the coursework was completed. Each academic department reserves the right to determine how transfer credits may be applied to satisfy the specific requirements for the major and/or degree. Students must contact their academic department to obtain any additional requirements needed for their program of study.
All applicants must meet the criteria published for limited access programs and should consult the specific college and major for requirements. Please note that exploratory majors are not open to transfer students.
Applicants who meet the above admissions requirements, but have not completed the University’s core curriculum requirements, or the prerequisites of their proposed major, may complete this college work at FIU, or at any other accredited institution. Students may also fulfill general education requirements through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
Official transcripts from all previous post secondary institutions must be forwarded to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Students are responsible for initiating this request directly from the academic institution.
Transfer applicants from the FL public institutions (community/state colleges) are encouraged to visit FLVC.org for additional information regarding the transfer process, including, but not limited to, program graduation requirements, transfer agreements, A.A. transfer evaluation (degree/advising audit), and common prerequisites (Common Prerequisite Manual).
All students seeking admission to the University regardless of whether the student holds an A.A., should have completed two years of credit in one foreign language at the high school level or 8-10 credits in one foreign language at the college level (American Sign Language is acceptable). If a student is admitted without this requirement, the credits must be completed at FIU prior to graduation from the University. If the student has already completed the requirement through an A.A. degree or high school diploma, an official transcript demonstrating completion must be sent to FIU at least one semester prior to graduation.
Students who can demonstrate continuous enrollment in a degree program at a Florida Public University or Florida State College since Fall Term 1989 (continuous enrollment is defined by the state to be the completion of at least one course per academic year) can be exempt from this requirement. Students holding an A.A. degree from a Florida Community College or SUS institution prior to Fall Term 1989 will also be exempt.
Students who are applying to majors in Theatre and Music, in addition to meeting university academic standards, must meet the approval of the respective department through an audition. Students should contact the department for audition dates.
Admission decisions will not be made before the application is completed and all supporting documents are on file in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Applications are kept on file for one year from the anticipated entrance date.
Admission to the University is a selective process and satisfying the general requirements does not guarantee acceptance.

LIMITED ACCESS PROGRAMS


A limited access program utilizes selective admission to limit program enrollment. Limited access status is justified where student demand exceeds available resources such as faculty, instructional facilities, equipment, or specific accrediting requirements. Criteria for selective admission include indicators of ability, performance, creativity, or talent to complete required work within the program. Florida state college transfer students with Associate in Arts degrees are given equal consideration with FIU students. Admission to such programs is governed by the Articulation Agreement and the Florida Board of Governors’ rules. Should a freshman applicant not meet the admissions criteria for the limited access program of interest, they may be placed into the corresponding exploratory major. Please note that exploratory majors are not open to transfer students.
The following FIU programs have been designated as limited access:
Accounting
Architecture
Business Administration
Communication
Dietetics and Nutrition
Health Services Administration
Music
Nursing
Social Work
Theatre



INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS


International student applicants must meet the admission requirements of the University as described in the previous sections and comply with the following:

Academic Records
Documents in a language other than English must be translated by an official translation agency. All credentials and documents submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions become the property of Florida International University. Originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution.
International University-level Transcripts require a course by course evaluation, with a calculated U.S. equivalent grade point average, through a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) Organization. Visit their website: http://www.naces.org/members.htm. Official evaluations, along with the international transcript(s) must be forwarded directly to FIU from the evaluation service. One exception to this policy exists: Chinese language transcripts from Tianjin University of Commerce will be evaluated by FIU staff for admission to the Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Management.
All credentials and documents submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions become the property of Florida International University. Originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution.

Proficiency in English
Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not successfully completed any college level English courses, must present a minimum score of 550 paper-based or 80 internet based (iBT) score on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A minimum of 6.5 on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) can also be submitted as proof of English proficiency.

Declaration and Certification of Finances
Upon receipt of the application for admission, the Declaration and Certification of Finances will be mailed to the applicant. It must be completed and returned to the Office of Admissions. A Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20A) will be issued once the applicant has been found admissible to the University, and the student has provided the bank/sponsor letter and the transfer release form (International students that are currently attending another U.S. institution must submit this form).
The University is required by immigration authorities to carefully check the financial resources of each applicant prior to issuing the Form I-20A. Therefore, it is important that applicants are aware of the cost of attending the University and have the necessary financial support for the period of enrollment. Applicants should refer to the Annual Estimate of Cost Chart in this catalog.
The total funds available for the student for the first or second academic year, or both, must equal the total estimate of institutional costs and living expenses. All items in the Declaration and Certification of Finances must be accurately answered to avoid unnecessary delay in processing. This document along with proof of sufficient funds must be received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions two months prior to the anticipated entry date. Refer to the Cost and Residency information page on the admissions website at http://admissions.fiu.edu for more information regarding cost of attendance. International students who are married should plan on an additional $6,000 in costs to cover the living expenses of a
spouse. Additionally, a couple with children should anticipate further yearly additional costs of no less than $4,000 for each child.

Medical Insurance
The State of Florida requires that all international students maintain health insurance coverage to help defray the costs in case of catastrophic medical emergency. The policy must provide specific levels of coverage which have been established to ensure that the policy is adequate to provide for costs at U.S. hospitals, usually much higher than costs in many other parts of the world. In addition, a policy must have a claims agent in the United States who may be contacted by medical providers and who facilitates prompt payment of claims. The University has approved a plan which meets the state requirements and which meets the needs of most students; however, a student on F status may select alternate coverage provided it meets the state requirements for minimal coverage. A copy of these requirements is available at International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSO) and at the University Health Services Department website at http://healthservices.fiu.edu/insurance/Pages/MadatoryInsurance.aspx. Students are advised not to purchase insurance policies prior to arrival without verifying that the policies meet FIU/State University System (SUS) requirements. Students in J status are required by the United States Information Agency to maintain health insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents for the full length of their program. Florida International University requires students on J status sponsored by FIU to purchase the University approved medical insurance plan for themselves and their dependents. Compliance with the insurance regulation is required prior to registration.

PRIORITY DEADLINES FOR INTERNATIONAL ADMISSIONS CONSIDERATION

Due to the additional processing time required for international students, application and supporting documents should be submitted as early as possible. We recommend the following time frames - February 1st if you are applying for the summer semester, April 1st if you are applying for the fall semester, and September 1st if you are applying for the spring semester. Deadlines to specific programs and to be considered for scholarships may vary so please visit http://admissions.fiu.edu for additional information and dates.
If the application and supporting documents are not received within the appropriate time, the application for admissions will cancelled. Applications are good for one year.

Tuition
An international student is considered a non-resident and is assessed non-resident fees. Immigration regulations require an international student to attend school each fall and spring semester. An undergraduate student is required to take a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester. Please refer to the section on Student Fees and Student Accounts for more information.

SCHOLARSHIPS
FIU recognizes both domestic and international students who are academically, artistically, and athletically talented and encourages them to apply. The University considers and awards several full and partial scholarships to domestics and international applicants. See Website for detailed scholarship information, http://admissions.fiu.edu/financial/scholarships.php.

GRADUATE ADMISSIONS

Florida International University encourages and accepts applications from qualified applicants without regard to sex, physical handicap, national origin, cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background or association.

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION INTO GRADUATE PROGRAMS

Applicants to a graduate program of the University must meet the minimum standards set forth by the University and the program. Applicants must check the individual program requirements before submitting their applications.
A student seeking admission into a graduate program offered by the University must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution or, in the case of foreign students, from a well established institution of higher learning that is authorized to grant degrees by appropriate authorities in that country. The applicant must submit official transcripts, test scores and other supporting documents to Florida International University, Graduate Admissions Office, P.O. Box 659004, Miami, FL. 33265-9004. All credentials and documents submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office become the property of Florida International University. Originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution.
In the absence of specific program admission requirements, the applicant should have a minimum of a "B" average in the last 60 credits of upper level work, or a graduate degree from an accredited institution.
Degree programs individually determine admission requirements with respect to requiring nationally-normed examinations and the required scores. Programs that have not set their own requirements default to the University standard which is that Ph.D. programs require that scores must be at or above the 60th percentile (e.g., 1120 combined Verbal and Quantitative on the GRE or 570 composite on the GMAT) and that master’s degree programs and professional doctoral degree programs require that scores must be at or above the 40th percentile (e.g. 1000 combined Verbal and Quantitative on the GRE or 500 composite on the GMAT).
Admissions at the graduate level are competitive and meeting minimum program requirements does not guarantee admission.
An applicant who fails to meet these criteria may gain admission via an exception to the admissions standards.


APPLICATION PROCESS

Students interested in applying for admission into a graduate degree program or a graduate certificate must submit their applications online by visiting FIU’s website at http://gradschool.fiu.edu for applications and instructions. A $30.00 non-refundable fee (U.S. Dollars) will be charged for each online application.

INACTIVATION PROCESS

Applications are valid for term of application only. Applications, which have not been acted on by the Department or remain incomplete, will be cancelled. Once an application is cancelled, the student will need to submit a new application and application fee in order to reactivate their file for admissions consideration.

READMISSION

An admitted degree-seeking student who has not enrolled in any course at the University for two (2) or more consecutive terms, excluding the summer term and military withdrawals, will be required to apply for re-admission. The Students must meet the University and program regulations in effect at the time of application for readmission. Applications for readmission are processed the same as an application for admission with the exception of needing to provide documentation already. If the applicant has completed courses in another institution of higher education since the last attendance at FIU, transcripts from that institution need to be submitted in addition to the application.

Application Deadlines for Domestic Students
SEMESTER Application Deadline
Fall June 1st
Spring October 1st
Summer March 1st


If the application and supporting documents are not received by the appropriate deadline, the student will need to submit a new application and fee for the next semester.

Note: Individual programs may have deadlines earlier than the University deadlines. Applicants should check with the program to which they are seeking admission to determine the application deadline.

CONDITIONAL TWO TERM ADMISSION
A graduate program may recommend for conditional admission students whose undergraduate GPA in their upper-level coursework is below 3.00 or GRE score is below the program requirements. Students who have already taken 12 graduate credits at FIU are not eligible for two term conditional admission. Any graduate credit (fewer than 12) already taken will be counted towards satisfying the conditional admission.
Students admitted under a two term conditional admission are required to: achieve a GPA of 3.25 or higher for the first 12 graduate-level credits and complete these 12 credits within first two consecutive semesters.

TRANSFER OF GRADUATE CREDIT FROM OTHER INSTITUTIONS
Doctoral programs may accept a maximum of 6 semester hours of graduate credit earned from another institution beyond a bachelor’s degree. An exception is made for courses contained within an earned master’s or doctoral degree. For such courses, the maximum is fewer than half of the total credits required for the program.
Master’s degree programs may accept a maximum of 6 semester hours of graduate credit earned from another institution beyond a bachelor’s degree.
Acceptance of transfer credits for a course is dependent upon the following provisions:
a. the student received a grade of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale
b. the course was taken at an accredited institution
c. the course was relevant, as judged by the admissions committee of the department or program, to the graduate program in which the student is accepted
d. the course is listed on an official transcript received by the Graduate Admissions Office
e. the course will not be older than six years at the time of receipt of a master’s degree or nine years at the time of receipt of a doctoral degree (does not apply to credits earned as part of a completed graduate degree program)

Note: Students are advised to verify this information with the appropriate Graduate Program Director.

ACADEMIC RECORDS
Official transcripts must be sent directly from each previous institution to the Graduate Admissions Office. Documents in a language other than English must be translated by an official translation agency. Notarized translations are not acceptable.

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
Foreign graduate applicants are accepted subject to space and fiscal limitations. In addition to the general University admissions requirements, foreign applicants must be academically eligible for further graduate study in their own country and must demonstrate proficiency in the English language by presenting a minimum score of 80 on the iBT TOEFL (equivalent to 550 on the paper-based version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language) or 6.5 overall on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). However, some departments may require higher scores. Applicants who hold an undergraduate or graduate degree from an institution within the United States or other English speaking countries are not required to submit TOEFL scores. The applicant must check the individual departmental requirements. For TOEFL information, visit the following URL: http://www.toefl.org/.
International student applicants must meet all the admission requirements of the University as described in the previous sections and also comply with the following:

Due to the additional processing time needed, International Students should submit their applications and supporting documents much earlier than students who are U.S. Citizens or Residents. It is recommended that all international students comply with the following application deadlines:

SEMESTER APPLICATION DEADLINE
Fall April 1st
Spring September 1st
Summer February 1st

Note: Individual programs may have deadlines earlier than the University deadlines. Applicants should check with the program to which they are seeking admission to determine he application deadline.

Tuition for International Students
An international student is considered a non-resident and is assessed non-resident fees.

Declaration and Certification of Finances
The Declaration and Certification of Finances It must be completed and returned to the Graduate Admissions Office. A Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20A) will be issued once the applicant has been found admissible to the University.
The University is required by immigration authorities to check carefully the financial resources of each applicant prior to issuing the Form I-20A. Therefore, it is important that applicants are aware of the cost of attending the University and have the necessary support funds for the period of enrollment. Applicants should refer to the Annual Estimate of Cost Chart.
The total funds available for the student for the first or second academic year, or both, must equal the total estimate of institutional costs and living expenses. All items in the Declaration and Certification of Finances must be accurately answered to avoid unnecessary delay in processing. This document must be received by the Graduate Admissions Office two months prior to the anticipated entry date.
A married student should plan on an additional $6,000 in costs to cover the living expenses of a spouse.
A couple with children should anticipate further yearly additional costs of no less than $4,000 for each child.

MEDICAL INSURANCE
The State of Florida requires that all international students maintain health insurance coverage to help defray the costs in case of catastrophic medical emergency. The policy must provide specific levels of coverage which have been established to ensure that the policy is adequate to provide for costs at U.S. hospitals, usually much higher than costs in many other parts of the world. In addition, a policy must have a claims agent in the United States who may be contacted by medical providers and who facilitates prompt payment of claims. The University has approved a plan which meets the state requirements and which meets the needs of most students; however, a student may select alternate coverage provided it meets the state requirements for minimal coverage. A copy of these requirements is available from University Health Services. Students are advised not to purchase insurance policies prior to arrival without verifying that the policies meet FIU/SUS requirements. Compliance with the insurance regulation is required prior to registration.


Priority Deadlines for International Admissions Consideration
Due to the additional processing time required for international students, application and supporting documents should be submitted as early as possible. We recommend the following time frames - February 1st if you are applying for the summer semester, April 1st if you are applying for the fall semester, and September 1st if you are applying for the spring semester. Deadlines to specific programs and to be considered for scholarships may vary so please visit http://admissions.fiu.edu for additional information and dates.
If the application and supporting documents are not received within the appropriate time, the application for admissions will cancelled. Applications are good for one year.

Tuition
An international student is considered a non-resident and is assessed non-resident fees. Immigration regulations require an international student to attend school each fall and spring semester. An undergraduate student is required to take a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester. Please refer to the section on Student Fees and Student Accounts for more information.

SCHOLARSHIPS
FIU recognizes both domestic and international students who are academically, artistically, and athletically talented and encourages them to apply. The University considers and awards several full and partial scholarships to domestics and international applicants. See website for detailed scholarship information, http://admissions.fiu.edu/financial/scholarships.php.

RESIDENCY INFORMATION
Final determination of residency for tuition purposes is not a requirement for admission to the University; however the Residency Declaration on the admission application and submission of the required supporting documentation are required in order to complete the admissions record for each student admitted to FIU. Students not completing these requirements will not be permitted to register for classes until they accurately declare their residency in Florida or agree to the terms under non-Florida residency. Please refer to the Residency Information contained under University Undergraduate Rules and Regulations.

Upon receipt of the application for admission, the Declaration and Certification of Finances will be mailed to the applicant. It must be completed and returned to the Office of Admissions. A Certificate of Eligibility (Form I-20A) will be issued once the applicant has been found admissible to the University, and the student has provided the bank/sponsor letter and the transfer release form (International students that are currently attending another U.S. institution must submit this form).
The University is required by immigration authorities to carefully check the financial resources of each applicant prior to issuing the Form I-20A. Therefore, it is important that applicants are aware of the cost of attending the University and have the necessary financial support for the period of enrollment. Applicants should refer to the Annual Estimate Cost Chart in this catalog
The total funds available for the student for the first or second academic year, or both, must equal the total estimate of institutional costs and living expenses. All items in the Declaration and Certification of Finances must be accurately answered to avoid unnecessary delay in processing. This document along with proof of sufficient funds must be received by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions two months prior to the anticipated entry date.
Refer to the Cost and Residency information page on the admissions website at http://admissions.fiu.edu for more information regarding cost of attendance. International students who are married should plan on an additional $6,000 in costs to cover the living expenses of a spouse. Additionally, a couple with children should anticipate further yearly additional costs of no less than $4,000 for each child.


Medical Insurance

The State of Florida requires that all international students maintain health insurance coverage to help defray the costs in case of catastrophic medical emergency. The policy must provide specific levels of coverage which have been established to ensure that the policy is adequate to provide for costs at U.S. hospitals, usually much higher than costs in many other parts of the world. In addition, a policy must have a claims agent in the United States who may be contacted by medical providers and who facilitates prompt payments of claims. The University has approved a plan which meets the state requirements and which meets the needs of most students; however, a student on F status may select alternate coverage provided it meets the state requirements for minimal coverage. A copy of these requirements is available at the International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSO) and at the University Health Services Department website at http://healthservices.fiu.edu/insurance/Pages/MandatoryInsurance.aspx. Students are advised not to purchase insurance policies prior to arrival without verifying that the policies meet FIU/State University System (SUS) requirements. Students in J status are required by the United States Information Agency to maintain health insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents for the full length of their program. Florida International University requires students on J status sponsored by FIU to purchase the University approved medical insurance plan for themselves and their dependents. Compliance with the insurance regulation is required prior to registration.


Priority Deadlines for International Admissions Consideration

Due to the additional processing time required for international students, application and supporting documents should be submitted as early as possible. We recommend the following time frames " February 1st if you are applying for the summer semester, April 1st if you are applying for the fall semester, and September 1st if you are applying for the spring semester. Deadlines to specific programs and to be considered for scholarships may vary so please visit http://admissions.fiu.edu for additional information and dates.
If the application and supporting documents are not received within the appropriate time, the application for admissions will be cancelled. Applications are good for one year.


Tuition

An international student is considered a non-resident and is assessed non-resident fees. Immigration regulations require and international student to attend school each fall and spring semester. An undergraduate student is required to take a minimum of twelve credit hours per semester. Please refer to the section on Student Fees and Student Accounts for more information.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Degree seeking applicants with fewer than 30 transferable semester hours must meet the same requirements as beginning freshmen applicants. Applicants with more than 30 transferable semester hours must have a 2.0 GPA, be in good standing at their prior institution and have successfully completed at least one college-level English and one college level math class with a “C” or higher. Applicants who receive an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a Florida State College or State University in Florida will be considered for admission without restriction except for published limited access programs within the University. We encourage all transfer applicants to apply for admission at least one semester prior to the term they wish to enroll. Students transferring from independent Florida and out-of-state colleges into the University’s upper division must have maintained a minimum 2.0 grade point average using a 4.0 scale (with the exception of some limited access programs) and be in good academic standing at the last institution. Coursework transferred or accepted for credit toward an undergraduate degree must be completed at an institution accredited as degree-granting by a regional accrediting body or at an institution accredited as degree granting by a national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education that participates in the statewide course numbering system at the time the coursework was completed. Each academic department reserves the right to determine how transfer credits may be applied to satisfy the specific requirements for the major and/or degree. Students must contact their academic department to obtain any additional requirements needed for their program of study. All applicants must meet the criteria published for limited access programs and should consult the specific college and major for requirements. Please note that exploratory majors are not open to transfer students. Applicants who meet the above admissions requirements, but have not completed the University’s core curriculum requirements, or the prerequisites of their proposed major, may complete this college work at FIU, or at any other accredited institution. Students may also fulfill general education requirements through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Official transcripts from all previous post secondary institutions must be forwarded to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Students are responsible for initiating this request directly from the academic institution. All credentials and documents submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions become the property of Florida International University. Originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution. Transfer applicants from the FL public institutions (community/state colleges) are encouraged to visit FLVC.org for additional information regarding the transfer process, including, but not limited to, program graduation requirements, transfer agreements, A.A. transfer evaluation (degree/advising audit), and common prerequisites (Common Prerequisite Manual). All students seeking admission to the University regardless of whether the student holds an A.A., should have completed two years of credit in one foreign language at the high school level or 8-10 credits in one foreign language at the college level (American Sign Language is acceptable). If a student is admitted without this requirement, the credits must be completed at FIU prior to graduation from the University. If the student has already completed the requirement through an A.A. degree or high school diploma, an official transcript demonstrating completion must be sent to FIU at least one semester prior to graduation. Students who can demonstrate continuous enrollment in a degree program at a Florida Public University or Florida State College since Fall Term 1989 (continuous enrollment is defined by the state to be the completion of at least one course per academic year) can be exempt from this requirement. Students holding an A.A. degree from a Florida Community College or SUS institution prior to Fall Term 1989 will also be exempt. Students, who are applying to majors in Theatre and Music, in addition to meeting university academic standards, must meet the approval of the respective department through an audition. Students should contact the department for audition dates. Admission decisions will not be made before the application is completed and all supporting documents are on file in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Applications are kept on file for one year from the anticipated entrance date. Admission to the University is a selective process and satisfying the general requirements does not guarantee acceptance.

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

DUAL DEGREE PROGRAMS
The Dual-degree Program offers undergraduate bachelor’s students a from an FIU international partner universities the opportunity to complete two degree programs in almost the same amount of time as completing one. The program allows for student exchange providing participants with the opportunity of studying on two different campuses in two different countries.
Upon completion of both programs graduation requirements, both institutions award equivalent degrees. Undergraduate and post-graduate students receive two degrees; one from their home institution and one from FIU.
HOW IT WORKS
Students visit the program coordinator at their home institution managing the FIU partnership to discuss the students qualifications and develop a plan of study. The plan of study will outline the required coursework at both institutions and the required timeframe to complete both institutional requirements. Prior to completing FIU coursework, the student must apply and be accepted into the program.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Applicants to a graduate program of the University must meet the minimum standards set forth by the University and the program. Applicants must check the individual program requirements before submitting their applications.
A student seeking admission into a graduate program offered by the University must have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution or, in the case of foreign students, from a well established institution of higher learning that is authorized to grant degrees by appropriate authorities in that country. The applicant must submit official transcripts, test scores and other supporting documents to Florida International University, Graduate Admissions Office, P.O. Box 659004, Miami, FL. 33265- 9004. All credentials and documents submitted to the Graduate Admissions Office become the property of Florida International University. Originals will not be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another institution.
In the absence of specific program admission requirements, the applicant should have a minimum of a "B" average in upper level work, or a graduate degree from an accredited institution.
Degree programs individually determine admission requirements with respect to requiring nationally-normed examinations and the required scores. Admissions at the graduate level are competitive and meeting minimum program requirements does not guarantee admission.
An applicant who fails to meet these criteria may gain admission via an exception to the admissions standards which must be initiated by the specific academic department.

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Prospective students seeking a graduate degree in the College must satisfy all university admission requirements as well as the specific program requirements. General requirements for the MS degree includes a BS in engineering or equivalent area, a GPA score of 3.0/4.0 or higher in upper level undergraduate work, and official GRE scores (if applicable). Each department evaluates candidates for admission to its programs. Prospective students should refer to the appropriate section of the catalog for specific admission requirements and for contact information of the Graduate Programs Directors.
Prospective students seeking a graduate degree in the College must satisfy all university admission requirements as well as the specific program requirements. General requirements for the Ph.D. degree includes an MS in engineering or equivalent area, a GPA score of 3.0/4.0 or higher in upper level undergraduate work, a GPA of at least 3.3/4.0 in the master’s program (if applicable depending on program requirement), as well as official GRE scores. Each department evaluates candidates for admission to its programs. Prospective students should refer to the appropriate section of the catalog for specific admission requirements and for contact information of the Graduate Programs Directors.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

Foreign graduate applicants are accepted subject to space and fiscal limitations. In addition to the general University admissions requirements, foreign applicants must be academically eligible for graduate level study in their own country. Applicants from non-English speaking countries must demonstrate proficiency in the English language by presenting a minimum score of 80 on the iBT TOEFL (equivalent to 550 on the paper-based version of the Test of English as a Foreign Language), or 6.5 overall on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or 53 on the Pearson Test of English (PTE) Academic. However, some departments may require higher scores. Applicants who hold an undergraduate or graduate degree from an institution within the United States or other English speaking countries are not required to submit English proficiency exam scores. The applicant must check the individual departmental requirements.
International student applicants must meet all the admission requirements of the University as described in the previous sections and also comply with the following:

Due to the additional processing time needed, International Students should submit their applications and supporting documents much earlier than students who are U.S. Citizens or Residents. It is recommended that all international students comply with the following application deadlines:

SEMESTER APPLICATION DEADLINE
Fall February 15th
Spring August 1st
Summer December 1st

Note: Individual programs may have deadlines earlier than the University deadlines. Applicants should check with the program to which they are seeking admission to determine the application deadline.

Residency Requirements

A student who is classified as a nonresident for tuition purposes may become eligible for reclassification as a resident for tuition purposes by presenting a minimum of three (3) documents identified in sections 1009.21(3)(c)1. or 1009.21(3)(c)2., that convincingly demonstrate the establishment of permanent legal residence in Florida other than for the sole purpose of pursuing a postsecondary education. Documentation must demonstrate that the student or, if the student is a dependent, their parent has maintained legal residence in Florida for at least twelve (12) consecutive months immediately prior to the first day of classes for the term for which residency reclassification is sought except as otherwise provided in section 1009.21(6).

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Doctoral programs may accept up to 20% of the required total coursework, subject to approval of the Program Director, of graduate credit earned from another institution beyond a bachelor’s degree. An exception is made for courses contained within an earned master’s or doctoral degree. For such courses, the maximum is one fewer than half of the total credits required for the program.
Master’s degree programs may accept up to 20% of the required total coursework, subject to approval of the Program Director, of graduate credit earned from another institution beyond a bachelor’s degree.
Education Specialist students are treated in the same manner as Master’s Degree students. Acceptance of transfer credits for a course is dependent upon the following provisions:
a. the student received a grade of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale
b. the course was taken at an accredited institution
c. the course was relevant, as judged by the admissions committee of the department or program, to the graduate program in which the student is accepted
d. the course is listed on an official transcript received by the Graduate Admissions Office e. the course will not be older than six years at the time of receipt of a master’s degree or nine years at the time of receipt of a doctoral degree (does not apply to credits earned as part of a completed graduate degree program)
Note: Students are advised to verify this information with the appropriate Graduate Program Director.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Materials Sciences and Engineering is a dynamic field involved in the synthesis, structure, properties and performance of materials. Advanced materials are the foundation of manufactured products and many of the technological advances of this century were enabled by the development of new materials. Materials Science and Engineering is a graduate program only, with undergraduate electives offered in the Mechanical Engineering curriculum to prepare the student for graduate education in materials science and engineering. The academic program offers specialization in metallurgy, ceramics, electronic materials and polymers and Biomaterials. There is an increasing demand for graduates of materials science and engineering, with high technology industries leading the need for graduates. In fact, many companies needing materials scientist and engineers did not exist 20 years ago. Because everything is made of materials and new materials, such as NanoMaterials, are rapidly being developed, materials science and engineering is a growth field in engineering.
