What Students Are Saying

DON'T. PROCRASTINATE. In an environment as engaging as that of FIU, it's only too easy to lose oneself. Keep your head in the game, and remember that you're there for the degrees and opportunities. It was a mistake I myself made, an excitable freshman positively dying to experience college life. Remember that you have a full four years (or more, if you like) to enjoy all that FIU has to give. Trying to cram it all into one semester will only serve to lower your GPA and get you kicked out for good.

College experience is entirely subjective. Everything they say in high school that professors are mean and that it is super hard are all lies. As long as you stay focused and on task, you will thrive at FIU. Start college with a blank mind set, build your own schemas, and do not let people’s comments interfere with your unique experience as a college student. I will not lie and say that college is 100% “fun for all,” but make the best out of your college experience.

Apply early! Pick the earliest orientation especially if you start in fall.

If you're considering FIU you must like big universities - FIU currently has about 44,000 students. That also means you'll meet people from every where around the world, with different customs and ideas and being open minded will help you socialize much better. Many students commute to campus and parking is typically an issue, so prepare to spend some time finding a convenient spot, or park a bit far and take a good walk through campus to get to your class. I live close to campus so I got a scooter, there's always easy parking for it and you'll enjoy the warm Miami breeze. ;)

you should always get involved, especially considering the wide variety of extracurriculars that fiu has to offer. you should always make friends in your classes; not only can this help you expand your circle of friends but it can also lead you to greater connections that will benefit you later on at fiu and even after. also, definitely take advantage of their free tutoring--it is paid for as a part of your college tuition, so if you need help or want to do better in a certain class, take advantage of such an opportunity.

the biggest tip would be making sure that you get all of your financial aid done early because you don't want to have to wait and stress about it like i did and have to pay more money out of pocket rather than the money that you got for financial aid.
Vlera from Washington, DC
Honestly if your GPA is good and your SAT/ACT is on par with it, you are guaranteed in, the school is still looking to expand and so isn't getting picky yet about its students, no telling if that trend will continue into these next couple of years.
Michael from Miami, FL
Study and get involved, theres no way you wont enjoy your college experience.Yet always remember, you are first a student studying at FIU; everything else comes afterwards.
Elizabeth from miami, FL
still confused? choose regular classes and explore your surroundings. in f.i.u, they make it alright not to know what you want to be in life and direct you to a path that suits you.

TIPS : Make sure you not only maintain your G.P.A but also score well on the SAT/ACT. FIU WILL decline you if your G.P.A is good but your scores are lacking.
