UNDERGRADUATE READMISSION

READMISSION OF RETURNING UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS (those students transferring with previous FAMU credits)
Matriculated students remain eligible to register for classes for a period of one calendar year from the term of their last enrollment. An undergraduate student who is registered for the fall semester and does not return in the subsequent spring semester remains eligible to register for three terms (Summer, Fall, Spring). If he or she does not register for one of the three terms, an application for readmission (no processing fee required) must be submitted to the Admissions Office to regain eligibility to register. Students residing outside of the State of Florida for more than twelve continuous months may be required to provide documentation of their residency status. 

Students who attend another institution of higher education during the period of absence must submit transcripts from all accredited institutions for credit evaluation and determination of continued admissibility.

Purpose of Social Security Number Disclosure
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.  Pursuant to State of Florida Statutes, Chapter 119, Public Records regulations under section 119.071(5) Other Personal Information (a)1a,2a; (II); 3, 4, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University continue to require the disclosure of the 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. 
Contact your nearest U.S. Social Security Office to apply for a number, if necessary, before submitting your application for admission. (All international students who are eligible to have a Social Security Number need to submit a copy of the social security card).
