First Time Student Application Checklist

U.S. citizen or permanent resident

To apply for admissions please submit the following:

  • Official High School Transcript or GED scores. The transcript or GED scores must be mailed directly to us by the issuing institution.

  • Advanced Placement scores. If you wish to receive advance standing credit, please arrange to have your scores from the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) forwarded directly from the testing agency to the Director of Admissions at Embry-Riddle.

Optional Information

  • Admission essay. While an essay is not required for admission, it may help us to assess your qualifications. You may include an essay when you submit your application package.

  • Resume. Though not required, we appreciate your academic and extracurricular activities to be summarized in a resume format to include accomplishments, activities, awards, honors, employment, and other achievements.

  • ACT and/or SAT scores.

  • Letters of Recommendation. Letters from your teachers, employers or a community leader can address areas of your background which are not always evident in your academic record. We suggest you submit two letters of recommendation. Letters of Recommendation forms are available for your convenience in PDF format. The forms are not required. Letters of recommendation submitted by your references are acceptable.
