Applicant Types

Before submitting an application for admission, prospective applicants should review the categories below to understand how the application will be considered. The categories are not mutually exclusive.

Freshman, or first-year, applicants for undergraduate admission typically either are in high school or have completed the equivalent of a U.S. high school education but have not enrolled in a degree-seeking program.

Applications in this category are evaluated based on the strength of the applicant’s high school coursework, grades, GPA, class rank, and quality of instruction at the applicant’s high school. Strong performance in relevant high school classes is a plus; participation in extracurricular activities, especially in arts and culture, is also valued. In addition, the application essay is an opportunity for applicants to discuss what motivates them to pursue studies at Fei Tian College.

Admitted students in this category must present proper evidence of the attainment of a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent by the time of initial enrollment.

Transfer applicants are individuals who have completed the equivalent of a U.S. high school education and are currently, or have been, enrolled as a degree-seeking student at a college or university that is accredited by a U.S. Department of Education-recognized accrediting agency or an international institution recognized by Fei Tian College.

Evaluation of applications in this category focuses on the applicant’s recent performance in college and high school. In addition, the application essay is an opportunity for transfer applicants to discuss what motivates them to pursue advanced studies in classical and traditional arts as well as how they feel they can make a positive contribution to the Fei Tian community.

See the International Student page for details.

Applicants for resumed education are individuals whose formal high school or college education was interrupted for several years.

Admission in this category is based primarily on an appraisal of the applicant’s experience, maturity, commitment, motivation to complete a degree program at Fei Tian, prior training, and future academic and professional potential.

Students who have not registered for courses at the College for one full year or more (excluding those who are away on an approved leave of absence) must apply for readmission or reinstatement if they wish to re-enroll. (Consult the Office of Admissions.) An official transcript from any and all institutions of higher education attended since the last enrollment in Fei Tian College, as well as a written statement explaining the circumstances for non-enrollment, must be submitted with the application.

Second degree applicants are individuals seeking an additional degree at the same level but in an essentially different area of study, typically after conferral of the first degree.

Admission in this category is based primarily on the applicant’s audition, recommendations, and motivation to complete a second degree program at Fei Tian.

Applicants for non-matriculated status are individuals seeking to take course(s) at the College but without being enrolled in a degree program. The College reviews applications for non-matriculated studies selectively.
