Established in 1961, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) serves over 30,000 students a year in its twelve campuses located in the areas of southern Florida. Many local high school students who prefer to stay close to home choose to attend FAU; however the university also attracts a large number of foreign students as well. With its growing popularity in recent years, FAU has formally raised admissions standards, making it more competitive to gain entrance into the school.
When applying to any college you can expect some of the same elements across the board. In order for your admissions packet to stand out from all the others, you would have had to work hard during high school, taken the appropriate classes, participated in extracurricular activities and leadership roles, and have proven yourself on the ACT exam. Because a lot rides on obtaining a standout score on this exam, working with a dedicated ACT private tutor could provide you with just enough edge to make your score leave the right impression to get FAU admissions.
The FAU Admissions Application
In particular for FAU, the admissions package includes:
- The application: Here is where you provide basic information about you and your family which includes your GPA, extracurricular activities, and awards and recognitions. The paper application can be found at www.fau.edu/admissions/apply.php. FAU also offers online admissions applications, if you are not partial to the paper version.
- The fee: FAU requires a $30 non-refundable fee with your admissions application.
- An official transcript: This sealed record should be sent directly to Florida Atlantic University from the high school(s) you attended. You can send it yourself if the envelope has not been opened.
- Interviews, letters from references, essays: FAU does not require an interview, references, or essays for admissions; however a writing sample and a resume are required as part of the supplemental application for consideration into specific programs.
- Official ACT or SAT score: When you take these tests, you can request that a score report be sent to FAU. As a rule of thumb, give yourself plenty of time for your scores to be processed and sent.
As you have probably noted, a lot of dedication during your high school years is necessary in order to gain admissions to FAU, and this work will be showcased well in your application and grades on your official transcript. However, if you get a mediocre score on your ACT exam, even if you have been a stellar student, it will not get you into FAU. For this reason, working with an ACT private tutor could be the final element to your college dream.
