Admission to graduate study is granted to qualified applicants, who are seeking degrees and to qualified post-baccalaureate students who may wish to upgrade specialty certifications or enhance their knowledge.
Admission to graduate study is a two-part process. The Graduate Office of Admissions determines the applicant’s eligibility for admission to the University and the academic program determines the applicant’s admissibility to the degree program. Final admission to the University is subject to approval by the Graduate Office of Admissions.
All official application materials, with the exception of test scores and transcripts, should be submitted online. All supporting documents (such as transcripts, test scores) should be mailed to:
The Graduate Admissions Office
515 Orr Drive
Suite 469 Tucker Hall
Florida A&M University
Tallahassee, FL 32307.
These documents must be received by the stated application deadline.
Applicants, who are interested in being considered for university fellowships or assistantships should apply by the priority deadline, and make sure that their applications are complete, including all transcripts and other program application requirements.
No more than 10 percent of the graduate students admitted for an academic year may be admitted as exceptions to the criteria above.
Timely application submission is important. Students are urged to apply in the fall of their senior year, since this allows for the evaluation and award processes to begin by January of each academic year. Late application submission diminishes the applicant’s opportunities for admission and financial awards.
