Undergraduate Admissions

Admissions Committee


The Admission Petition and Appeals Committee reviews requests for appeals from those undergraduate applicants who have been denied admission to the university. 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:

  • An Admission Petition and Appeal form

  • 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 teachers, counselors, mentors, tutors, academic or career advisors, former employers, etc. Such letter(s) should not be a “form” letter, but directly address any deficiencies in the student’s academic scores.
  • Any additional documents to help support the appeal*

Students will be informed of the committee’s decision via e-mail within 5 business days of its meeting. Please note: appeal review requests can only come from the applicant.
