Discussion of FAU's Admissions Standards:

FAU, Florida Atlantic University has selective admissions. Less than half of all applicants will get in, and successful applicants will need solid standardized test scores and grades. In the graph above, the blue and green dots represent accepted students. You can see that the majority of students who got in had high school averages of "B-" or higher, combined SAT scores of about 1000 or better (RW+M), and ACT composite scores of 20 or higher. Your chances of being admitted improve significantly with grades and test scores a little above these lower ranges.

Note that there are quite a few red dots (rejected students) and yellow dots (waitlisted students) hidden behind the green and blue in the middle of the graph. Some students with grades and test scores that seemed to be on target for FAU were not admitted. Note also that some students were accepted with test scores and grades a little bit below the norm. This is because FAU looks at the rigor of your high school courses, not just your grades. AP, IB, and Honors courses receive additional weight in the admissions process. Also, certain programs at FAU (Business, Nursing, Architecture, Engineering, Music, and others) have additional admissions requirements.
