Application information

Find out about requirements, fees, and deadlines


Applying for undergraduate admission to Florida Tech is simple. There is no fee, and applications are accepted on a rolling basis, year-round. Submitting the Common Application alone does not constitute a "complete application." For your application to be reviewed, you must also submit: 1) official high school and/or college transcripts 2) standardized test (SAT or ACT) results (optional for international students). An essay and a letter of recommendation are both optional.


Transfer applicants must provide official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and/or universities.

Additional Information

Florida Tech is proud to be able to make substantial contributions, through need-based grants and merit-based scholarships, to offset our students' costs. As a result, the majority of our students find that the net or "out-of-pocket" cost of their Florida Tech education is far less than the published tuition—in many cases, over 50% less.
