Admissions Deadlines

Application Deadlines

Your First Year application for admission to Florida Atlantic University is a combined application that includes merit-based scholarships.

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

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, therefore students are advised to apply early for full consideration for admission and for scholarships. 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.
