We have a unique opportunity to offer you a jumpstart on your college career by taking a few classes this fall through a special partnership with Miami Dade College on the FIU Biscayne Bay Campus (BBC). This is a new program called  Miami Dade College Fellows By the Bay. When you were admitted to FIU for the spring term we encouraged you to take two or three classes at Miami Dade College to help you stay on track and keep your mind active between high school and college. Through Miami Dade Fellows By the Bay, Miami Dade College is going to offer you those classes at FIU on the Biscayne Bay Campus.

As part of the Miami Dade College Fellows By the Bay program, you will select up to three courses from a list of courses being offered by Miami Dade College at FIU’s Biscayne Bay Campus. You will be a Miami Dade College student and receive all of the benefits of MDC, and special benefits from FIU in advance of being an FIU student in the spring semester.
