Prepare to Transfer

Now that you are getting ready to graduate with your AA, there is no need to reapply or pay another application fee. Just follow these steps to officially transfer to FIU.

1. Speak with a Bridge Advisor

Before you do anything, meet with a Bridge Advisor to get support as you take the final steps in your transition. Only your Bridge Advisor can confirm you’ve met your requirements and are ready to transition.
