Applying For Transfer Admission
Applying for undergraduate admission to Florida Tech is simple. There is no fee and applications are accepted on a rolling basis, year-round. If you are a prospective freshman or transfer student who wishes to enroll in full-time study in a Melbourne campus program, you may choose one of the following application methods:
Each application has its own sign-up process and login requirements. If you intend to apply to more than one university that is a Common Application member, we highly recommend using the Common Application.
The application process varies slightly for international students. Please follow the applicable instructions so that we may review your application in a timely manner.
No Deadline - Apply Anytime
There is no deadline to apply for undergraduate admission to Florida Tech. Our rolling admission policy means that we accept and review applications for multiple entry terms all throughout the year. Students who wish to enroll as freshman may submit an application as early as the end of your junior year of high school, as long as your final grades have been posted and you have taken the SAT or ACT.
Things To Remember
For each of the applications, you will need easy access to your:
- Permanent address, mailing address and phone
- Degree/major program name/code
- High school (freshman) or previous college (transfer) information
Submitting an application form does not alone constitute a "complete application." In order for your application to be reviewed, you must also submit:
- Official high school and/or college transcripts
- Standardized test (SAT or ACT) results (optional for international students)
- An essay
- Letter of recommendation
After you submit a complete application form, you will receive occasional email reminders about any outstanding application materials via email. An admission counselor may call you to offer assistance as well.
I've Applied, Now What?
We strive to deliver transfer admission decisions within two weeks (ten business days) after an application has been submitted in full. But we cannot review an application until it is complete.
After you hit "submit" on your application form, your next steps including completing your application, getting a head start on the financial aid process, and exploring the opportunities available to you as a future Florida Tech student.
Submit Transcripts To Complete Your Application
Have official copies of all of your college transcripts sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admission at Florida Institute of Technology, 150 W. University Blvd., Melbourne, FL 32901. If you have an unofficial copy, you may scan and upload it during the application process or fax it to 321-674-8004. While official transcripts are required prior to enrollment and transfer credit evaluation, we can use unofficial transcripts for initial evaluation purposes. Remember, if you have earned fewer than 24 credit hours at the time of application, you must also submit your high school transcript(s) and standardized test (SAT or ACT) scores.
File The Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
You've been an undergraduate student for some time, so hopefully you already understand the importance and value of filing the FAFSA. If you've never completed the FAFSA before, now's the time! The FAFSA is your gateway to eligibility for a variety of need-based financial aid opportunities. Use Florida Tech code 001469 when filing.
Visit Florida Tech
One thing that hasn't change since you first enrolled in college is the importance of the campus visit. Sure, you're older and wiser now, unmoved by the same things that got your attention in high school. But don't you want to make sure that the people and places surrounding you for the remainder of your undergraduate education make you feel welcome and inspired? The best way to do so is to visit. You can do a Daily Visit or spend some serious time on campus during an upcoming Discovery Day or Exploration Day.
