Registration l.jpg
REGISTRATION Admissions/Studies

  • Web registration is preferred method of registering. https://oasis1.fau.edu/ia-bin/ahomepg.htm

  • The on-line schedule of courses shows course availability.

  • Pay tuition by 1/18/200 to avoid any late fees ($125).

  • Late drop/add period runs through January 17; all courses are fee liable after this date.

Unsatisfactory academic performance l.jpg
