Students who attend a non-US institution must provide a foreign credential evaluation from a service who is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). A course-by-course credential evaluation, with grade point average included, is required for all non-U.S. coursework. All transcripts must be certified as official and in the native language when provided to the credential evaluation service.

Follow this checklist to apply and if you need help, just contact an FIU admissions counselor.

1. Verify Transfer Credits

Whether you have a few credits or you have your associates degree, you need to verify your transfer credits. The process determines which of your earned credit hours are transferable to FIU. FIU may not accept all credits and certain credits may not count for the same classes (for example an English course at one college may not count as an English credit at FIU). You can verify your credits by:

Military Transfer Students - Learn more about transferring military credits and find out how to receive your educational benefits from the office of Veterans and Military Affairs.

2. Apply for Financial Aid

Filing for FAFSA before the deadline will make it easier to calculate and deliver your financial aid awards. You should file for FAFSA even if you aren't sure you'll qualify. Search for scholarships you could qualify for early as deadlines to apply may vary.

3. Start your Application

The online application takes about 20-30 minutes to complete and will require a $30 application fee. When you begin the online application, be prepared to pay the fee.

4. Submit Transcript(s)

This includes transcripts from any college or university you’ve attended. Students who do not have an associate’s degree or have 60 or fewer transferable credits will also need to submit their SAT/ACT scores and high school transcript. You must submit your transcripts before the application deadline. Applications without a transcript will be rejected as incomplete.

5. Submit Exam Scores

You must submit exam scores separately, even if they are already on your transcript. This applies to advanced placement (AP), CLEP, or any other exam credit scores. AP scores must be a 3 or higher. Scores submitted after the application deadline will not be considered on your application. See accepted exam credits.

6. 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.

Residency Forms and Information

Residency Status

Your proof of residency is used for tuition and financial aid purposes only. Undocumented or DACA students may qualify for in-state tuition in certain circumstances and some private scholarships.

7. Check Application Status

When you finish your application, you will be assigned a Panther ID and within 1-3 week days you will have access to your MyFIU account where you can check your application status.
