Bachelor of Applied Science Degree Basics and Minimum Requirements

Building on the skills you've gained through work experience or previous coursework, the Bachelor of Applied Science degree is focused on preparing you for a specific career path.

At Eastern Florida State College, to be eligible for a BAS degree program, you need to have earned an Associate in Science (A.S.) or Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or higher from a regionally accredited college.

Please note that an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum requirements for entry into a BAS program. If you have an AAS degree and are interested in transferring to a BAS program, we recommended consulting with a bachelor advisor, who can review your coursework and help you determine the best options.

Before beginning upper-level courses in the program (3000 and 4000 level courses), it's also necessary for you to achieve a grade of "C" or higher in the following two courses: Introduction to C++ Programming (COP 2334) and Statistics (STA 2023). It's possible that you may have already taken these courses before entering the program; however, if you haven't, an advisor will be available to assist you with course planning and ensure that you meet the necessary requirements.

Be aware that students beginning their bachelor program in the 2021-22 academic year or later must have met Florida's Civic Literacy requirement before their baccalaureate degree will be awarded. See the Civic Literacy page for details on how this requirement can be met. You may have fulfilled the requirement, or at least part of it, during your associate degree so talk with an advisor as needed.

Once you've been accepted into a bachelor program at the college, there are a few additional steps to complete. You'll need to complete an online orientation and meet with a bachelor advisor before registering for your first semester of classes. The acceptance information you receive will include a reminder about these requirements.

The $10,000 Bachelor's Degree Program

Good news! EFSC's Computer Information Systems Technology BAS degree specializations are eligible for the $10,000 Bachelor Degree Program, which is designed to help minimize your out-of-pocket costs over four years of study.

This program ensures that you won't pay more than $10,000 in qualifying expenses throughout your educational journey, starting from earning your associate degree at EFSC and then continuing into one of our computer BAS tracks.

At EFSC, the Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees that are the best match for transfer to the BAS program are Computer Information Technology, Computer Programming and Analysis, and Network Systems Technology.

To explore this option and determine your eligibility before starting an associate degree, we recommend that you work closely with a bachelor advisor.

Important Bachelor of Applied Science Program Notes

⇒ To ensure you have a seat in the online or face-to-face courses of your choice for your specialization, it's essential to register promptly, as available courses can fill up rapidly. Remember to consult with your advisor as needed during the planning process. Additionally, stay informed about important term dates and keep a close eye on your Titan student email for the latest updates regarding registration start dates and other relevant information.

⇒ You can earn the Computer Information Systems Technology degree (BAS/CTBS) by choosing one specialization. If you want to take courses from another specialization, you can do so as a non-degree-seeking student.

⇒ The most up-to-date and reliable information about the curriculum can be found in the official online EFSC catalog, which takes precedence over any other sources of information regarding the curriculum. Please note that EFSC reserves the right to make changes to both the online and printed versions of the curriculum as needed. However, it is anticipated that these changes will primarily involve correcting any errors and adding new courses and programs that are approved during the academic year.
