Admission — everything you need to know to be part of us

General Information

Individuals may apply to FGU at anytime and from anywhere in the world. The University provides a “rolling admission” policy — this means that the University accepts qualified applicants as they apply until all available spaces are filled. Even though there is no application deadline, applicants are advised to apply early. The University accepts applications regardless of sex, religion, or race. The University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admissions.

Currently, the application may only be mailed to the University to succesfully complete the process.

From the moment the application is received, the FGU Admissions Office becomes involved, answering questions and providing assistance in completing the application. FGU's admissions representatives are available to assist applicants through the steps of the admissions and registration processes to help each applicant attain their educational goals.
