Undergraduate Admissions


We're excited that you are planning on returning to FIU to finish your educational path.


Readmission Applicants

Any formerly admitted degree-seeking student who has not enrolled in any course at the University for three (3) or more consecutive terms, excluding military withdrawals, will be required to apply for re-admission. The student must meet the University and program regulations in effect at the time of re-admission. To begin your online application, click here

In fall 1998, the University established the following two policies to assist returning students wanting to complete their degrees, Undergraduate Academic Amnesty and Undergraduate Academic Salvage. Details of these policies are listed below.

Academic Amnesty

Formerly fully admitted FIU undergraduate students who left the University with a GPA below 2.0 and have not enrolled in any university or college for at least six calendar years may apply for Academic Amnesty when submitting a readmission application.

Policy: Readmitted students with Academic Amnesty will begin with a 0.0 GPA. No grades previously earned will be included in the University GPA. However, credit from previous University courses, in which a grade "C" or better was earned may be applied towards a degree, subject to determination by the college of the student's major. All prior courses attempted and grade received will be on the student's transcript. Students applying for Academic Amnesty to a limited access program must meet the admission criteria of the program. Admitted students may not petition for any retroactive change on their academic record.

Academic Salvage

Formerly fully admitted FIU undergraduate students who have been academically dismissed from the University or have a GPA below 2.0, and have received an AA degree from another Florida public institution of higher learning may apply for Academic Salvage.

Policy: If readmitted to FIU under Academic Salvage, students will begin with a new FIU GPA of 0.0 and will be credited with a maximum of 60 semester credit hours. Students must follow the regular readmission application process and complete the Salvage form for consideration to be determined by the student's academic dean.
