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. In most graduate programs, Florida Tech admits on a rolling basis. However, it is strongly recommended that you review the Important Dates page to ensure admission consideration for the requested program and semester of entrance. As an international student, additional time is needed in order to obtain your student visa. It is recommended to apply at least 6 months prior to your entry term.
The university strictly conforms to U.S. immigration laws concerning international students. Upon acceptance, you must provide certified evidence that you have adequate funds to meet all your expenses during the first year of university. International students will be considered for scholarships based on performance at their current university.
