Graduate School Admissions
Information for Prospective Graduate Students
A student applying for graduate school admissions must have a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent from a recognized regional accredited institution of higher education. To be considered for admission, the student’s academic and professional record should indicate that there is a high probability that the applicant will be able to successfully pursue graduate work.
Admission to a doctoral program is competitive and granted to a limited number of applicants.
The successful applicants will have a bachelor’s or master’s degree from an regional accredited or government recognized institution in a program that provides suitable preparation for doctoral level studies in the applicant’s field. Academic records of the applicant must indicate probable success.
Applicants should complete the application form and submit it with either a $50 (master’s) or $60 (doctoral) application fee, and if applying on-line, submit the signature certification form. Transcripts from all colleges or universities attended, and a GRE or GMAT score, if applicable, (see Summary of requirements in the on-line catalog) for your program should be sent directly to the Graduate Admissions Office.
International Graduate Students
Applicants who require a student visa to enter the USA, will need to submit the I-20 Request Form or the IAP-66 Form (click on Additional Online Forms) to Florida Institute of Technology, Graduate Admissions Office, 150 W. University Blvd., Melbourne, Florida 32901. Please note that the form can be submitted at the time of application, however an I-20 form cannot be issued until admission is approved and all necessary financial documents, the required bank statement(s) and/or sponsorship letter, have been received. These documents should be dated within six months of planned attendance.
Recommended Filing Dates
In most graduate programs, Florida Tech admits on a rolling basis. However, it is strongly recommended that the following dates be followed to ensure admission consideration for the requested semester of entrance. Any application received after the recommended filing date will be considered, however, may be at a disadvantage for graduate school admissions and for scholarship consideration. It is important to know that if a decision is not reached for the term requested by the evaluation deadline the application will automatically be considered for the next upcoming term.
