Admissions Requirements for Baccalaureate Programs

Admission to the Bachelor of Applied Science in Business and Organizational Management requires that an applicant has already earned an A.S. or A.A. and have earned at least a 2.0 grade point average on a 4.0 scale prior to being admitted. Students can apply during their final semester in an A.S. or A.A. program, but acceptance will not be granted until the completion of the associate degree has been confirmed. Students must also complete a baccalaureate program admission application and pay the application fee.

Admission to the Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education requires that an applicant has already earned an A.S. or A.A. and have earned at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale, completed the three prerequisite courses (EDF 2005 Introduction to the Teaching Profession, EDF 2085 Introduction to Diversity for Educators, and EME 2040 Introduction to Technology for Educators), and passed the General Knowledge Exam prior to being admitted. Students can apply during their final semester in an A.S. or A.A. program, but acceptance will not be granted until the completion of the associate degree has been confirmed. Students must also complete a baccalaureate program admission application and pay the application fee.

Consideration for acceptance to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing requires that an applicant has already earned an Associate Degree in Nursing from a regionally accredited higher education institution and have earned at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Students can apply during their final semester in an Associate Degree in Nursing program, but acceptance will not be granted until the completion of the associate degree has been confirmed. An active, unencumbered Florida RN license must be submitted before beginning the second semester of classes. Students must also complete a CF baccalaureate program admissions application and pay the application fee prior to making application for acceptance into the RN to BSN program. Application to CF and application for acceptance into the nursing baccalaureate program are two separate forms.

Students articulating with an A.S. degree will need to complete additional general education courses to meet the 36-credit hour requirement. Students articulating with an A.A. degree may need to complete some upper-level core course prerequisites.

Students must meet the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges requirement for residency, which requires that CF award at least 25 percent of the program courses in the declared major. This means that 15 of the 60 upper level (3000/4000) course credits must be taken at College of Central Florida.
