Admissions Application Procedures

Application for Admission

  • Please submit your online application with the nonrefundable application fee of $35.00.
  • Applications for admission will not be processed more than one year in advance of the date for which entrance is sought.
  • You will need to have a U.S. Social Security Number. This is your official student identification number. Contact your nearest U.S. Social Security Office to apply for a number, if necessary, before submitting the online application. (All international students who are eligible to have a Social Security Number will need to have one.) The State University System of Florida operated a system of records prior to January 1, 1975, pursuant to regulations of the Florida Board of Education that required the use of social security numbers. Therefore, each university may continue to require the disclosure of social security numbers by applicants and students under the Federal Privacy Act of 1974. This information was, and currently is, received from you for the purpose of identification and verification of student records, including registration, financial aid, and academic records, and of verification of identity in connection with the provision of university services.

Official Transcript

The following transcripts must be sent to the Office of Admissions at Florida A&M University. All transcripts and test scores become the sole property of the university.

  • If you are a beginning freshman or transfer applicant with less than 60 semester hours of transferable academic credit, ask your high school to forward your official secondary school record.
  • If you have attempted any college course work, either as dual enrollment in high school or following high school, ask each school to forward an official transcript of your academic record. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the institution or forwarded electronically.
  • Home-schooled applicants should visit our web site for specific Identification document requirements.
  • Students who complete high school by GED must provide an official copy of test scores and a partial high school transcript.
  • Transfer students who completed 2 years of the same foreign language in high school must submit official high school transcripts.

Admission Test Scores

It is your responsibility to make the necessary arrangements to take the appropriate tests. Contact your school counseling office.

  • ACT or SAT scores are required if you are seeking admission as a freshman or transfer student with less than 60 semester hours of transferable academic credit. Have the official test scores forwarded directly to the university by the testing agency. ACT scores must include the English/Writing component.
  • Transfer students seeking admission to State Approved Teacher Education programs should contact the College of Education to determine if there are further criteria or test scores required for admission.
  • Applicants whose native language is not English may be required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and have their scores submitted by the Educational Testing Service.

Additional Information: Admission Consideration Based on Disability

If you wish to request special admission consideration based on a disability, the SUS will consider this information within the following guidelines:

  1. documentation regarding the disability will need to be provided on a voluntary basis;
  2. all information will be kept confidential;
  3. refusal to provide information will not subject the applicant to adverse treatment, and
  4. information will only be used in connection with the university's voluntary efforts to overcome the effects of conditions that may have resulted in limited participation of persons with disabilities.
