All complete applications are evaluated by the Graduate Studies Committee of the Department of Economics at FIU, which makes the final admission decision. Since admission to the program is competitive, the committee’s requirements are normally higher than the minimum standards. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.
The Graduate Advisory Committee may approve the transfer of a maximum of 12 graduate credits earned in a non-degree capacity at FIU. Ph.D. students who have satisfied all other requirements for the M.A. apart from the exit requirement (i.e. all coursework and the foreign language competency) are eligible to receive an M.A. degree.
