F ind more funding resources through the University Graduate School and the FIU Office of Scholarships. Deadlines for funding may vary.
Submit the FAFSA
3. Complete your Application
The online application takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and requires a $30 application fee. During the online application process you will be asked to provide personal information and information about your educational history. You will also be asked to upload your supplemental admissions documents (statement of intent, resume, etc.) and provide the contact information for your recommenders.
Some programs require additional applications (either departmental or supplemental) before you can submit the university's graduate application. Please check the Admissions Requirements page to view see if a graduate program has an additional application or additional requirements (interview, portfolio, etc.) for admission.
4. Submit Transcript(s)
This includes university/college official transcript from all institutions previously attended in a sealed institution envelope. If you graduated from FIU, you do not need to request transcripts unless you attended another institution afterwards. Students who have received an education from non-English speaking countries must have their transcripts translated when sent to FIU. Find out more:
5. Submit Residency Documentation
Residency status is used primarily to determine whether students pay in-state or out-of-state tuition. Whether you are a Florida resident, U.S. resident or international student, you are required to submit proof of residency. Failing to provide residency documentation will delay your enrollment.
6. Check Application Status
When you finish your application, you will be assigned a Panther ID within 3-5 work days. This will give you access to your MyFIU account where you can check your application status.
Be sure to check your email junk/spam folders and/or indicate FIU is a trusted source to ensure you receive all important email messages.
