Admissions & Appeals Committee
The FIU Admissions and Appeals Committee is a group of faculty, staff and administrators who take the time to review students’ applications on a case by case basis. Although GPA, test scores and academic performance are good measures of a student’s potential, we understand there are more subjective measures such as ambition, courage, perseverance and creativity that set you apart.
The committee will do a holistic review of all applications looking for the following qualities:
- Curriculum choice: Did you challenge yourself by taking more academic classes than electives? Or did you take advanced, honors, AP, IB, AICE or Dual Enrollment classes?
- Special talents, achievements or accomplishments: Is there any work you are especially proud of? Did you excel in art, sports, a leadership position or community service?
- Eloquence: Can you clearly and honestly explain what makes you a good candidate for FIU.
