Students who have been admitted into an undergraduate program in the College, but who have not enrolled in any course at the University for two or more consecutive semesters (excluding summer) must complete an application for readmission. Those eligible for readmission are subject to the University and the Colleges degree program regulations in effect at the time of readmission.

Transfer students with fewer than sixty credit hours or international students transferring from a non-U.S. institution must meet the same requirements and follow the same procedures as freshmen entering Florida International University. See the FIU Undergraduate Catalog for more information.

Transient Students

Fully enrolled, degree-seeking students who attend another accredited college or university may apply to take courses at the college for one semester at a time. You must show proof of your status, which for most students requires obtaining a transient student form from the registrar’s office of your parent institution and submitting it to our university’s Office of the Registrar. You must repeat this process for each semester in which you wish to take courses as a transient student. You must also meet any requirements for enrollment in the specific courses you wish to take.
