Hi all, 

I just submitted my application. How long after submitting did they contact you all about your next steps? Also, is anyone still completing prerequisites? I am missing sociology.

They contact you pretty quickly. The interview took a while to schedule and it took 3 weeks to find out if we were accepted or not. 

I am also missing sociology and have decided just to CLEP it. It's $87 at FAU testing center. There are apps you can download to study questions and a free online prep class called Modern States that you can sign up for and watch videos and read a textbook and take practice tests. Then you should be ready to take it. It's better than being in a class. And sociology is pretty common sense stuff. It's one of the easier CLEPS that they have. 

They told me I have to have the CLEP completed before the beginning of class in order to start in August so you need to act fast if you plan on starting in fall. 

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Thank you @yukka1. Is it a competitive program? What are your stats? Also, what profession are you all currently in? I signed up to attend the 6/19 info session so hopefully, all of my questions will get answered. Does anyone know the overall cost of tuition?

I went to an info session on the 1st. They've recieved 300+ applications with no marketing at all. They took 30 students from the FAU accelerated waitlist and it's 72 seats that are open. So the amount of traffic in apps they are getting I would say it's competitive. They also decided to open another application period in the spring. The tuition is about 42k but they explain why. It's very much catered to the students.

Yes. I have. But I use to be a student at FAU many years ago. The email worked for me even though I think it wasn't suppose to. I already completed everything. It takes a lot of work. And $$$. Background check is $167 which includes drug test and then you have to pay $50 for fingerprints.

You can use your personal email, they will change it latter

For those of you that completed everything in Castle Branch, has your fingerprints section been cleared?
