Pursue the U.S. degree you've always wanted.


Becoming an undergraduate student

Florida International University Online (FIU Online) offers undergraduate students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree with its many fully online degree programs. A bachelor’s degree is considered a four-year degree, meaning that it typically takes a student four years of full-time enrollment to complete. Most bachelor’s degree programs at FIU are 120 credits or around 40 courses.

To be considered an undergraduate student, you:

  • Must have graduated from high school, or
  • have taken college courses after graduating from high school, but have not earned a U.S. bachelor’s degree equivalent
