Dual Admission Program

The Dual Admission Program is a pathway and an opportunity for your four-year degree. You are invited to complete your first two years of college by earning Associate in Arts degree (AA) at one of the participating colleges of your choice.  If you earn the Associate in Arts within a 3-year time frame, you will be provided automatic admission into FIU for completion of your last years of classes for a Bachelor’s degree from FIU. Further details can be found in the 2014 Dual Admission Brochure.

Our Dual Admission Program enhances Florida’s 2 +2 Pathway to Success Program.  With the 2+2 program, once you complete an Associate’s degree you are provided guaranteed admission into one of the 11 state universities, but not necessarily one of your choices.  With our program, not only do we provide guaranteed admission to FIU, but we also provide workshops and personalized advising to get you on a clear pathway to university completion.  Students who participate in the Dual Admission Program are more likely to make the transition to FIU than similar students who do not accept the invitation.
