Nonprofit Management BAS Track - Admissions Information

To join the program, you'll need to follow EFSC's standard steps for enrolling in a bachelor's degree. Remember to stay aware of the upcoming application deadlines. The program has three start terms: Spring, Summer, and Fall, which begin in January, May, and August, respectively.

To be eligible for the Nonprofit Management Specialization, you must have completed either an Associate in Science (A.S.) or an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a regionally accredited college. It's important to know that an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree doesn't meet the minimum eligibility requirements for this specific track. If you happen to hold an AAS degree and are interested in transferring to a BAS program, consider discussing your coursework with a bachelor advisor. They'll guide you through the process and help you to determine the next steps you should take.

Brief Costs and Financial Aid Eligibility

As a Florida resident, you can expect to pay around $7,200 in in-state tuition to complete this two-year program's courses. Please be aware that this tuition cost doesn't cover expenses for course materials or lab fees.

Since the program requires an associate degree by the time you start classes, you'll need to complete an additional 60 credits. Approximately 39 of these credits will be for upper-level courses, as specified in the fee schedule.

There are financial assistance options available to support you throughout the program. You may qualify for financial aid and scholarships, including Titan Scholarships provided by the EFSC Foundation or external scholarships offered by various community organizations.
