Student Affairs

College is a rich and multi-faceted adventure, shaped by experiences learned both in and outside the classroom. Participating in an intramural sport, writing for the student newspaper or serving as a cabinet member for Student Government Association can influence your interests, provide practical skills and experience, and enrich learning. The Division of Student Affairs supports these experiences by engaging students outside of the classroom through 23 departments. Let's explore and grow together.

Freshman Convocation

Freshman Convocation is a Florida International University tradition that welcomes freshmen, as well as their friends and family. This memorable experience marks as the students' introduction to their college career, in the same manner that commencement will mark their success as proud graduates of FIU.

If you would like to travel on the bus that will transport students to/from the Biscayne Bay Campus to Freshman Convocation at the Modesto Maidique Campus please register here.

Applications now open for the Student Support Services Program
The Student Support Services Program provides opportunities for academic development, assistance with basic college requirements, and motivates students toward the successful completion of their bachelor degree. The goal of SSS is to increase the college retention and graduation rates of its participants. SSS also may provide grant aid to current participants who are receiving the Federal Pell Grant. In order to be eligible students must meet at least one of the following criteria: be a first generation college student, receive federal financial aid such as the Pell Grant, or be registered with the Disability Resource Center.
