Frequently Asked Questions

Select a question from the left, see the answer to the right.

What are the required admissions documents?

The required admissions documents vary based on your program and international status. To learn more please visit the Admissions Requirements page.

How do I submit my application documents?

After your application fee is received and processed by our Accounting Office, you will be able to upload all of your supporting documents in the application portal. All of your documents must be original, in-color documents, uploaded only in PDF format; documents submitted in other formats will not be accepted.

How do I submit my application documents?

Yes! You would still be eligible to apply, but after you apply you will need to let us know that you are willing to be conditionally accepted. In this case, you will be accepted to our ESL program, meaning you will receive an ESL I-20 and conditional acceptance letter. If you are conditionally accepted, you will be able to waive the ESL program if you provide sufficient test scores upon arrival to FXUA or if you pass with a sufficient score on our Accuplacer English test.

Do I need to submit an official English language proficiency score?

English is the language of instruction at Fairfax University of America, and therefore international students need to provide proof of English language proficiency.  For more information about the standardized tests that FXUA accepts as proof of English language proficiency, please visit English Language Proficiency Requirements page.
