Frequently Asked Questions


General Application

Q 1: Am I required to take certain subjects/courses in high school?
We do not have requirements for a specific set of courses to take, but we do recommend a rigorous college-preparatory schedule. Such a schedule usually includes four years of English, three years of mathematics, three years of science, two years of social studies, two years of history, and two years of foreign language.

Q 2: Which standardized tests do you accept?
We accept scores from the SAT and/or the ACT test; there is no preference given to one test over the other.

      • SAT: We consider the Math, Critical Reading and Writing sections for tests taken before March 1, 2016 (2400 point scale).
        We consider the Math, Evidence-Based Reading and Writing sections for tests taken after March 1, 2016 (1600 point scale).

      • ACT: We consider the composite score; we do not require the writing portion (36 point scale).

Q 3 : Is there a minimum GPA and ACT/SAT test score required to apply to Fei Tian?
There are no minimum ACT/SAT score requirements for applying for the college. However, both ACT/SAT scores and GPA are essential factors of the admissions decision. Besides, each program has its own requirement on ACT/SAT scores as college-level readiness assessment. For example, Data Science program prefers SAT Math 630 or the ACT equivalent and Biomedical Science prefers SAT Math 630 or the ACT equivalent and SAT ERW 540 or the ACT equivalent. If the student can not reach the score, a placement test should be arranged to determine whether remedial courses need to be taken before starting the program courses

Q 4: If I take the SAT or ACT more than once, which scores will you review?
We superscore your results, combining your highest scores from each subsection of the test, possibly from multiple test dates, to give you the highest possible overall score. However, we will not be able to superscore between the old (2400 point scale) and the new (1600 point scale) SAT test attempts. Superscoring is the college practice of looking at the highest scores a student has earned on each section of a test, even if the tests were taken on different dates, and combining them into a composite score. Because the two versions of the SAT will differ significantly, the College Board (which administers the SAT) advises against superscoring across the two types of SAT. If you took the old SAT multiple times we will superscore your scores from the old exam, and if you take the new SAT multiple times we will superscore your scores from the new exam, but we will not combine your superscores from the two versions.

Q 5: I’ve already been accepted, and I want to enroll at Fei Tian. What do I need to do?
Congratulations – we’re so glad you’re coming to Fei Tian! An enrollment deposit which is equal to $500 of your net tuition and fees reserves your place in the entering freshmen class. You can submit your deposit at any time after you have been accepted. Housing placement and registration for classes are processed in the order of the time we receive your deposit.

Q 6: Are there academic scholarships available to incoming freshmen?
Yes, for detailed information about scholarship please check financial aid page.

Q 7: Are resources available for students who need additional educational support?
The Office of Academic Affairs works with individual students to determine the level of support needed. Our goal is to serve all students and assist each in becoming an integral part of the campus community. If you have questions regarding requests for services, please email at

Transfer Students

Q 1: What is the transfer application deadline?
The priority deadlines are March 1 for a fall semester start and Dec. 1 for a spring semester start. Please contact the Office of Admissions to find out if late applications will be accepted.

Q 2: When will I be notified of my admissions decision?
We have a “rolling” admissions process, which means that we notify applicants of admissions decisions on a continuing basis, determined by when each student submits all of his or her application materials.
Once all of your application materials have been received and processed by the admissions office, you should expect a letter in the mail regarding the admissions decision within about three weeks.

Q 3: What is the minimum GPA a transfer student must have to apply?
There is no minimum requirement but a 2.5 cumulative GPA for all college coursework is recommended if applying as a full-time matriculated student. 

Q 4: When can I visit the Fei Tian campus?
We welcome and encourage transfer students to visit campus and get a feel for whether Fei Tian is a good fit for you.
