Lock in Your Opportunity to Be Exceptional

An Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University education is nontraditional, unrestricted and never ordinary. If that's the kind of thrilling collegiate experience you want for yourself, it all starts here.

After submitting the application for admission, you'll need to submit appropriate documentation in order to complete your application file so that it can be reviewed for admission. Documents required vary by student type and desired degree. See our Undergraduate, Graduate or International student admissions pages for details.

New students are eligible for admission at the beginning of the fall, spring and summer terms. High school students may apply at the beginning of their senior year. Applications received after the priority filing dates will be processed on a space-available basis.

Note: Due to high demand, some programs may reach capacity before the priority date.

Step 1: Submit your application along with the $50 application fee

Please note: The tuition deposit date for the 2024 Fall and Summer B terms has been moved to June 1, 2024.
