    The Office of International Admissions continues to review applications on a rolling-admissions basis throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall terms.
    The last day for initial I-20’s (required for student’s who do not currently posses an F1 visa) to be created for Spring 2022 is December 1st.  If you have not received your I-20, or if you were admitted after this deadline, please consider updating your term of entry to Summer 2022 or Fall 2022.  This request can be submitted via the Application Update Form. Alternatively, you may be able to enroll in a fully-online version of your program, if offered, and change to the in-person version for next term. Graduate students will need to connect with their program directors for approval before these changes can be made.

    Pathways to FIU Admission

    Admission to FIU is selective. Every year we receive thousands of applications from students with varying academic profiles. We consider each student for admission to a best-fit term based on their entire academic profile. For this reason, FIU created several pathways to admission.

    Below is a description of each pathway. We also include a chart detailing the admissions criteria for each pathway toward the bottom of each section to help guide you towards your best-fit admission to FIU.
