Returning Student And Second Baccalaureate

Returning degree-seeking FAU student

If you are a former, degree-seeking FAU student, but not currently enrolled, your eligibility to return will depend on several factors. Degree-seeking students returning after an absence of more than a year may be subject to the following:

  1. If last enrollment was more than three consecutive semesters, the student must file a new admissions application with the appropriate documents and submit a new application fee of $30.

  2. The student must be in good standing (eligible to return) at FAU and at any institution attended since last period of enrollment at FAU. If the student was academically dismissed from FAU, that student would need to petition to be reinstated to FAU before the admissions application can be processed (this is handled by the college in which the student was academically dismissed.)

  3. If the student has attended another institution since the last period of enrollment at FAU, official transcripts must be forwarded directly to the FAU Office of Admissions by the registrar of the other institution(s).

  4. Previous attendance at FAU does not guarantee admission. Quality of any interim work and successful progress toward a degree are considered.

  5. A returning student that is denied by the office of undergraduate admissions has the right to appeal through the FCSA http://www.fau.edu/admissions/FCSA.php

Second Baccalaureate - Applicants Holding a Baccalaureate Degree

Students applying for a second baccalaureate degree must have received their first bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution and achieved a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher. A "major" is required for all students seeking a Second Bachelor's Degree when submitting the application online.
