Florida Tech Admissions Overview

Florida Tech is a moderately selective school: over a third of applicants are rejected each year. Students with grades and test scores above average have a decent chance of being admitted. The school requires test scores as part of the application, and students can send in either SAT or ACT scores. Along with test scores, prospective students must submit high school transcripts, letters of recommendation, and an essay. Check out the school's website for complete details, and contact the admissions office with any questions you may have about the application process!
