It is required that students submit all final transcripts before the first day of classes at FAU in order to avoid any registration holds. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will make all final admission determinations based on your final high school and/or college transcripts. Submit final transcripts to: Florida Atlantic University, Office of Admissions, 777 Glades Road, P.O. Box 3091, Boca Raton, FL 33431-0991.
