On behalf of Florida International University (FIU) and the Office of Student Access & Success (SAS), we invite you to be part of our exciting and dynamic learning environment. FIU is a vibrant, student-centered public urban research university educating 55,000 students from around the world.

FIU is Worlds Ahead in its commitment to learning, research, entrepreneurship, innovation, and creativity so that our graduates are prepared to succeed in a global market.

The Office of Student Access & Success is dedicated to providing a high quality equitable education to all students. Closing the achievement gaps and ensuring access and inclusive excellence are a paramount undertaking of our agenda. At FIU, we provide our students with support services and opportunities to access and engage in a variety of experiences designed to complement the academic curriculum, such as study abroad opportunities, internships and many other enrichment programs, to help them fully enjoy a holistic college experience. As you peruse our site, you will learn that SAS offers numerous pre-collegiate and college programs that create clear pathways to undergraduate, STEM, and PhD degree completion.

Student involvement is critical to college success; therefore, we encourage every student to connect to the many academic programs, research initiatives, and organizations offered at our vibrant university. It is my philosophy that a quality education is the great equalizer that can transform the mind and lives and position individuals for greater success. We welcome you to be a part of the greatness of FIU!
