FIU Connect4Success, formerly known as the Dual Admission Program (DAP), ensures that students enrolled at partner colleges transition to the university with greater ease and academic readiness. Students in the program benefit from the strengths of two public Florida institutions that stand together to provide a high-quality undergraduate education.
As Connect4Success students, you are guaranteed admission to FIU upon completion of your AA degree (within 3 years) at any Florida state college*
Your AA degree will automatically satisfy the lower-division general education requirements (i.e. the University Core Curriculum) and a maximum of 60 lower division credits will count toward your Bachelor’s degree at FIU.
However, please be advised that you may still be required to fulfill lower-division prerequisites based on your major of choice.
*Students are guaranteed admission to the university, but not necessarily to the major of their choice. (See number 4 under ‘What You Need to Know!’ for more information.)Your Critical Reminders:
Bridge advisors are advisors from FIU who assist Connect4Success students in their successful transition to FIU. They help identify appropriate FIU majors, common prerequisites, GPA requirements, and more to ensure that students are fully transfer ready after completing their AA degree! You can visit a Bridge Advisor at Miami Dade College (MDC) or Broward College (BC). Their contact information is below:
Targeted workshops are offered throughout the year. Check your partner college email regularly to stay informed of dates and times. Workshops fill up fast so RSVP as soon as you get your invitation!
0-30 credits: Meet & Greet and Individual Advising
30-45 credits: Group Advising Session
45-60 credits: Final Transition Workshop
We recommend that you begin the transition process one-two semesters prior to your desired start date. If you haven’t done so already, please visit the Connect4Success website, and click on “Returning” for more information.
Students applying to limited access programs should pay special attention to application deadlines and GPA requirements, which differ from the general admission parameters. In addition, many programs require that a separate application and/or a complete set of transcripts be submitted to the specific college/school. The following FIU programs are designated as competitive admissions
All transfer students are required to complete an online Virtual Orientation. You will have access to view the orientation through your FIU student portal (my.fiu.edu) once you pay your $200 enrollment deposit. You will receive valuable information regarding university policies, financial aid, transfer equivalencies, student life and resources, and academic programs. You can stop and restart where you left off, and can always log back in to use the Real-Time Reminders and revisit your Topics of Interest.
Once you have completed the Virtual Orientation, you will be able to sign up for an on-campus Advising & Registration Day. Advising & Registration Day is your first opportunity to meet with your academic advisor and register for classes. For more information, please visit the Orientation website, and/or contact Orientation and Parent Programs:
Modesto Maidique Campus
Biscayne Bay Campus
New transfer students should also consider participating in the annual Transfer Panther Camp. You will have the opportunity to build relationships with other incoming transfer students, learn about FIU culture, develop leadership skills, and more! For more information, go to PantherCamp.
