Admitted Student Information

Pete FIT Bound

Before you can officially enroll at Florida Tech, there are some steps you need to complete. 

Admitted students follow the steps below:

Activate your "TRACKS" account

By now, you should have received an email with instructions on how to activate your Florida Tech TRACKS account. TRACKS is your universal login and password for secure student systems at Florida Tech, including email and course registration. Your TRACKS activation email would have been sent to the address you provided on your application. You must activate TRACKS within two (2) weeks of receiving this email. If you have not received or have lost your TRACKS email, or if your link has expired, you must contact university tech support at (321) 674-7284 or email

Start "Panther Pass" & Pay Your Tuition Deposit

Pete on ComputerPanther Pass is a pre-orientation portal for admitted students, designed to take you step-by-step through all the tasks you need to complete before your arrival on campus. When you log in to Panther Pass, the first steps you will see are:

  • Verify your major and entry term
  • Update your personal information
  • Review and secure your merit-scholarship awards
  • Pay your non-refundable $300 tuition deposit
Paying your tuition deposit confirms your intent to enroll and secures your spot in the class.

As you complete steps in Panther Pass, you can save your place. It is not necessarily to complete all of Panther Pass in one sitting.

Demonstrate English Proficiency 

U.S. and international students whose first or home language is not English must provide evidence of English proficiency. Minimum required scores are outlined in the English Proficiency policy

English proficiency is not a requirement of admission, but it is required for issuance of immigration documentation and enrollment. Students who are admitted but do meet English Proficiency requirements will be invited to enroll in English training courses at the ELS Language Center on campus, Florida Tech Bridge Program on campus before beginning academic coursework, or may submit any Florida Tech approved test to demonstrate English language proficiency at any point prior to enrollment.

Submit I-20 Documents

Once you have paid your tuition deposit, it is time to complete the I-20 request process. Demonstrating English Language Proficiency is part of this process.

After Receiving Your I-20

Upon receipt of your I-20, make an appointment with the U.S. embassy or consulate responsible for issuing nonimmigrant visas for your home country. This is the first step toward obtaining your visa.
