Freshman Admissions

You've come this far because you want a hands-on education that leads to a strong degree in a major you truly care about. Perhaps you also have an affinity for sunshine, flip-flops and rocket launches. You're interested in Florida Tech—so now what? Before you immerse yourself in an exciting university experience, you’ve got to get in. Start here if you are currently in high school, homeschooled, or have graduated high school but have not yet enrolled in college.

Transfer Admissions

When you complete your bachelor’s degree at Florida Tech, employers notice. We are committed to making your transition as smooth as possible. First, we’ll determine how many of your previously earned credits will transfer. Then, we’ll help you with the financial details, from transfer scholarships to out-of-pocket costs. Apply as a transfer if you are currently or have been enrolled in an associate's or bachelor's degree program at another college or university.

Graduate Admissions

As a doctoral-granting, research-intensive national university with top-cited professors and state-of-the-art facilities, Florida Tech provides an ideal environment for advanced education. Assistantships and stipends are available to most master’s and doctoral students. Apply as a graduate student if you have earned a bachelor’s degree and are interested in earning a master's or doctoral degree on campus in Melbourne, Florida.

International Admissions

International education is part of who we are. With about one-third of our undergraduate students hailing from more than 100 different countries, Florida Tech is ranked #1 for international diversity by U.S. News & World Report. We take the ideal, #YouAreWelcomeHere, seriously. But more than that, we take it to heart. Find your international home away from home at Florida Tech. Start here if you are not a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and require a VISA to study in the United States.

Online & Off-campus

You don’t have to come to Melbourne, Florida to pursue the degree you need for the future you want. We offer select undergraduate and graduate programs at Education Center locations in Florida, Alabama, Virginia and Maryland, as well as online.

Dual Enrollment and Non-Degree Seeking

Are you a local high school student who would like to take college courses at Florida Tech while completing your high school education? Maybe you’re a college graduate in need of additional undergraduate coursework, or perhaps you attend college out of state but want to take a college course in Melbourne over the summer? Or maybe you're a local senior (65+) who just wants to learn something new. Whatever your situation, you are welcome to apply for admission as a dual enrollment or non-degree seeking (also known as non-matriculating) student at Florida Tech.
