Admissions

The Application for Admission to Miami Dade College is accessible online at www.mdc.edu/admissions. A nonrefundable $20 application fee is required from all new college credit students. (Fee subject to change without notice.) This fee is charged only once. If paying by check or money order please make your check or money order payable to Miami Dade College and write your Social Security number on your payment. You may also pay your admission fee online via Visa, Mastercard or e-check.

First-Time-in-College Students

All first-time-in-college students must submit final high school transcripts or equivalency (showing actual graduation date). If you are a Florida public high school graduate, Miami Dade College will electronically request your records. However, you are ultimately responsible for ensuring that the College receives your final high school transcript or equivalency.

Foreign High School Graduates

You must submit original, certified documents for proof of high school or equivalent graduation. English translation may be required under certain circumstances

Transfer Students

If you are seeking a degree, you are required to provide official academic transcripts from each college/university previously attended before evaluation for credit can be considered. Your college/university transcripts will be evaluated only if you are enrolled as a degree seeking student. Note: Failure to submit all appropriate transcripts will jeopardize future enrollment at the College and financial aid eligibility. Please refer to the transfer student information in the Admissions section of the College Catalog.

Testing

All new students must take the Computerized Placement Test or submit acceptable SAT or ACT scores. For a list of scores, please see our testing Website at www.mdc.edu/testing information. Students whose first language is not English may be required to take an English proficiency test. Please contact the testing department at the campus you will attend for more information. NOTE: Test scores used for course placement purposes are only valid for two years.

Admission to the College does not constitute admission to upper division programs of study. A separate program application is also required for each bachelor’s degree program.
