Requirements For Admission
All applications are evaluated based on the same admission standards, which means the academic requirements of international students seeking first year, transfer or graduate admission to Florida Tech are the same as those of domestic (U.S.) students, except international first year and transfer students are not required to provide SAT or ACT results. International applicants are test optional when applying for admission. Florida Tech's primary goal is to admit applicants who demonstrate a high likelihood to succeed in one of the university's rigorous degree programs.
