Transcript Requirements for High School and/or College

High School Transcript Requirement

A final, official High School transcript indicating date of graduation or GED transcript is required for registration into college courses. When requesting official transcripts, ask that they be sent to the EFSC campus you consider your primary campus. EFSC will accept proof of standard high school diploma to allow you to register for your initial term. You must submit your final, official transcript before you can register for the next term.

Acceptable proofs of standard high school diploma:

  • Original or copy of high school diploma with graduation date
  • Unofficial high school transcript indicating standard high school diploma
  • Official/unofficial regionally accredited college transcript with college-credit course work completed
  • Original or copy of college diploma from a regionally accredited institution

Please note: Financial Aid will not be awarded until the official high school transcript is received and evaluated.

College Transcript(s) Requirement

Submit final, official College Transcript(s) from all U.S. regionally accredited institutions previously attended. Note: A transcript with courses in progress is not considered a final transcript. When requesting official transcripts, ask that they be sent to the EFSC campus you consider your primary campus.

Meet with an academic advisor if you need to use your unofficial transcript as proof of a prerequisite(s) to register for your initial term. Once an official transcript is received and evaluated by EFSC, your coursework will be transferred and you may register online.

Please note: Financial Aid will not be awarded until all U.S. regionally accredited official transcript(s) are received and evaluated, and you must submit all official transcript(s) before you can register for the next term.

Placement Test Requirement

To clear the Placement Test requirement, you must to do one of the following:

• If you have ACT, SAT, PERT or CPT/FELPT scores that are less than two years old from term of enrollment, request an official copy of the scores be sent to an Eastern Florida State College admission office. If you bring your SAT or ACT login and password to the Admissions Office, one of our specialists can help you download your official placement scores.

• If you entered 9th grade in a Florida public school in the 2003-2004 school year or later AND graduated from a Florida public high school with a standard high school diploma, or serve as an active duty member of any branch of the United States Armed Services you may be eligible for exemption from testing.  See an advisor to explore that option: walk-in or schedule an appointment by calling 321-632-1111.

• If you completed a college-level math or Composition 1 course at a regionally accredited U.S. College with a grade of “C” or higher it will fulfill that portion of your placement test requirement. Make sure your official transcripts are sent to EFSC for evaluation. An unofficial transcript may be used for initial placement.

• No scores…No problem. Schedule the placement test by calling 321-632-1111. Learn more about placement testing in that section of our website.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

If you choose to apply for financial aid you'll want to start the process as soon as possible. The first step in receiving any aid is completing the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Use EFSC school code: 001470 at this federal student aid site maintained by the U.S. Department of Education. You also can explore EFSC sponsored and outside scholarships which require an application process in addition to the FAFSA plus get assistance with the financial aid process from the Eastern Florida State College Financial Aid Office on your campus.

Orientation Requirement

Orientation at Eastern Florida State College is designed to familiarize new students with the processes, policies and services that are critical to success. EFSC's general orientation is required in addition to any separate orientation that may be related to limited access programs such as health sciences, nursing or public safety. The orientation requirement can be met two ways: at an in-person session, recommended on the campus you consider your home campus, or through our online orientation module.

Career Planning Assistance

As you chart your path through Eastern Florida State College, you want to think about your career aspirations and how your course of study can help you achieve your goals.

Course Registration and Payment Process

Once admission holds have been cleared, you can register for courses. Your advisor can help you register in-person, you can register online or EFSC's recruiting office offers open registration labs for some in-person help with the process. The EFSC Class Schedule lists the classes for each term and is available online. Explore the registration process at this link. Classes must be paid for by the term's fee due date to avoid late fees.
