Non-degree: How to enroll
Below are the steps to follow if you are not seeking a degree or certificate from Eastern Florida State College. Perhaps you want to take only a few credit courses for personal enrichment or to update your job skills. This is also the right area if you are a current Brevard County public school teacher taking courses to maintain your teaching certification.
Non-degree students must be a high school graduate.

Our Career Planning & Development Centers also are a resource during this stage of planning and throughout your career.
Step 2: Apply for admission and provide proof of residency.
Eastern Florida uses a convenient online application system. You can pay the one-time, non-refundable $30 application fee online by credit card or in person by cash or check. If paying in person you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to pay the fee by cash or check at a Campus Cashiers office.
For determining residency, the Florida Residency Guidelines, will walk you through the process and required Declaration. This same Declaration is used by non-Florida residents to declare that classification. Be sure to follow up and submit the residency supporting documents to the EFSC campus you select as your primary campus. Campus admission office addresses are on the Residency Information sheet and on our main admissions contact page.
Please note that applications are processed in the order they were received and application processing time may take up to three weeks. Check your email frequently for your acceptance letter.
Step 3: Complete EFSC's student orientation online system.
Orientation is mandatory for non-degree students who have not earned an associate degree or higher, first time students and transfer students, and is recommended for all students. It’s an introduction to life at Eastern Florida. Access online orientation through the myEFSC Portal with your B-Number and PIN. Once logged in, click the Student Orientation/Titan Preview icon to begin the orientation.
Step 4: Enroll for courses, pay your fees, get your Student ID card, parking decal & books.
- You must register in person for classes each term at any campus Admissions/Records office. Use the online Class Schedule Search to find course information. Transcripts from prior schools are not necessary and will not be evaluated. However, you must provide proof that you have satisfied the course prerequisite when required. You may take up to 12 credits as non-degree seeking; after that time you must provide transcripts and/or declare a major and meet appropriate program requirements. (Unless you are a Brevard Public School Teacher.)
- Visit the Tuition & Fees sections for information on paying fees.
- Student ID cards are available at any EFSC Campus Security Office for free by presenting your class registration and a photo ID. This ID also will be your library card and replacing a lost card costs $10.
- A Student Parking Permit is $40, plus tax – and involves a two-step process to generate a temporary permit online and then pick up the permit at your campus security office.
- Bookstores are located on all four campuses. At least 30 days prior to the first day of class for each term, EFSC posts a list of each textbook required for each course offered at the institution during the upcoming term. You can find the list at the bookstore website's "Find Textbooks" page, which will include the International Standard Book Number (ISBN) for each required textbook or other identifying information, the title, all authors listed, publishers, edition number, copyright date and published date.
