Transfer Admissions

The Honors College accepts applications from students wishing to transfer from 2-year or 4-year institutions. Admission decisions will be based on an applicant's qualifications and will be made on a space-available basis. An interview may be required. As a liberal arts and sciences college, 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. Students are also able to design their own programs of study in consultation with faculty. For further information about available academic programs as well as graduation requirements, see the 'Academics' section of our website.

Priority is given for admission and scholarship awards to those applicants who apply early. See the section on How to Apply for application deadlines and for a detailed description of the process. It is important that applicants send all their transcripts (high school and college) and their standardized test scores (SAT/ACT) to Florida Atlantic University. All test scores and high school transcripts are optional for applicants with greater than 60 hours of college-level credit.

The Honors College is a residential living-learning community. All unmarried students under the age of 24 entering the Honors College in Fall 2014 are required to live on campus in our residence halls until earning 90 credits while at the Honors College. Transfer students who are not required to live on campus are still encouraged to do so. For more information about Residential Living see the website section on Housing, and for information about campus resources see the links available under Student Resources. 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 this website.
