As part of EFSC's commitment to provide a safe and positive college experience for every student, EFSC now requires all currently enrolled students to participate in an important online training program called "Think About It." Visit the course information page to learn more about its content and login to the myEFSC Portal before the December 1 deadline to begin the course.

How to Apply to EFSC's Automotive Program

A special application to EFSC's Automotive Service Technology program is required in addition to the standard EFSC application for general admission. The selection process includes an admission criteria point system explained in the program's information packet. Applicants with the highest total number of points based on the information contained in their application file will be finalists for the program.

This two-year PSAV (Post-Secondary Adult Vocational) college certificate program is eligible for financial aid and is offered only on the Cocoa Campus.

Step 1:  Check Deadlines, Request & Review Information Packet & Work with Advisor

Application Deadlines
  • June 10: Fall Term (August start date) - Full-time Day Class

Request the Automotive Services Information Packet: This will open an email to the program advisor. Please include your name, phone number and email in the note you send, along with any initial questions.

Because this is a limited access program with many variables and a special application requirement, it's important for prospective students to receive advising from the program advisor, Dottie Ross.

Step 2:  Apply for General Admission to Eastern Florida State College

This application is available online or from EFSC's Campus Admissions Offices. Complete all admissions requirements with the General Admissions office.

Note: This step pertains ONLY to those students who are not currently enrolled with the college. If you're a returning/readmit student who applied to EFSC one or more years ago and have not completed a course in the past year, you must re-apply and can do so online and will not be charged the general EFSC application fee.

College Admissions Office
Eastern Florida State College

Step 5:  Complete the Automotive Program Online Application

Complete the online Career & Technical/Trades Application. This application is in addition to the general EFSC application and MUST be properly submitted by the application deadline (See Step 1 for deadlines). It can be submitted while you are completing general EFSC admissions requirements.
