First-year student admission

Get moving with this step-by-step guide

Ready to start your journey?

If you’re going to attend college for the first time and are planning to study in our traditional day program on campus in Boca Raton, we call you a first-year student.

You’re also a first-year student if you’re:

  • Currently in high school and have no college credits
  • Currently in high school and have dual enrollment credits
  • Graduated from high school and have no college credits
  • Graduated from high school and have fewer than 12 college credits

Find requirements for international students and those wishing to transfer credits from another institution.

Undergraduate admission requirements
