Application is available beginning September 15th
Early Applicant Application Deadline: November 15, 2016
Regular Applicant Application Deadline: February 1, 2017
Applying during the Early Applicant Round to FAU High School provides the opportunity to receive an admissions decision by December, but Early Applicant acceptances are reserved for highly competitive applicants based on criteria aligned to highest performing students historically admitted to the program.
Thus, the Early Applicant round is more selective, with highly competitive applicants with respect to grades, courses completed, Accuplacer scores, and recommendations, receiving acceptance decisions.
Mathematics Courses - Early Applicants are typically on course to have completed at least Algebra 1 Honors and Geometry 1 Honors by the end of grade 8.
Accuplacer - Students that have not yet completed Algebra 1 Honors at time of application for the Early Applicant Round, are not typically as competitive with respect to Accuplacer Elementary Algebra Scores. It may be recommendable for such applicants to take the Accuplacer later within the Early Applicant timeline, or plan to test and apply in the Regular Applicant Round.
Early Applicants who are not selected in the Early Applicant Round, are automatically included for admissions consideration in the Regular Applicant Round, and will receive an admissions decision by March.
Early Round Decisions- December: Notification of Admissions Decisions - Applications completed by November 15, 2016 will receive priority consideration for early round decisions. Admission decisions will be posted to your online account in early-mid December with email notifications to follow.
Regular Round Decisions- March: Notification of Admissions Decisions - Applications completed by February 1, 2017 will receive priority consideration. Admission decisions will be posted to your online account on by March 1, 2017 with email notifications to follow.
We will continue to process applications after the final February 1st deadline, however priority will be given to early and regular round applicants. The Admission Committee may offer qualified late candidates a place on the Waiting List.
