How to enroll for returning and readmit students

You’re in the right place if you’re a returning/readmit student who applied to Eastern Florida State College one or more years ago and have not completed a course in the past year. This category includes students who took Dual Enrollment classes prior to high school graduation.

Readmit students can apply online and will not be charged the $30 application fee, which they already paid with their prior application. Follow the steps below.

Steps to Enrollment

Step 1:  Explore EFSC campuses and our Degrees & Programs.

Before you even apply, you want to learn more about EFSC’s four campuses and the degrees and programs that interest you. Think about your career aspirations and how your course of study can help you achieve your goals. Our interactive Explore Your Options page will help you sort through our degrees and programs.

Our Career Planning & Development Centers also are a resource during this stage of planning and throughout your college experience.

Step 2:  Re-apply for admission and provide proof of residency.

Eastern Florida uses a convenient online application system. The application in combination with 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 Eastern Florida campus you select as your primary campus. Campus admission office addresses are on the Residency Information sheet and on our main admissions contact page.

Allow three business days for your application to be processed.

Step 3:  Request your final, official high school transcript and all college transcripts to be sent to your primary campus, if it was not received during your prior EFSC enrollment.

During the application process, you chose a primary campus. Your primary campus is the campus where you will submit all required admissions documents.

Step 4:  Meet with an advisor to determine whether you need Placement Testing.  

As a readmit student, you may or may not need Placement Testing to assess your readiness for college. An Academic Advisor can review this with you, plus help you develop an educational plan, schedule classes and address other academic concerns. Academic advising is available in the Student Services Center on all campuses on a walk-in basis. Appointments are also available by calling 321-632-1111. Click here for more details and locations. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor every term to monitor progress.

To determine if your degree or certificate program requires placement testing, please review the EFSC Programs & Admissions Requirements.

If you’ve taken the SAT/ACT and your scores are less than two years old or if you’ve completed college level English and math courses with a grade of “C” or higher, have your official test score reports and/or official transcripts sent to your primary campus.

Eastern Florida offers College-Credit and Vocational Credit testing, which you can explore at our Placement Testing website. You’ll find lots of resources for test preparation. To register for the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT), call 321-632-1111.

Step 5:  Complete student orientation.

Orientation through our online system is mandatory for all re-admit 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.

Step 6:  Apply for Financial Aid.  

Once you’ve been accepted as an Eastern Florida student, you should start the process of applying for financial aid – and you must reapply each year. Every EFSC student should apply because the only way to find out if you’re eligible is to fill out the Free Application for Federal  Student Aid (FAFSA). Explore the Financial Aid section of our site for more information about financial aid and scholarships -- and the steps for applying.

Step 7:  Register for classes, pay your fees, get your Student ID card, parking decal & books.
