Sports Management BAS Track - Admissions Information

To enroll in this program, follow EFSC's standard application procedures for a bachelor's degree. Be sure to keep track of the application deadlines! You can start this program in the Spring, Summer, and Fall Terms (January, May, and August respectively).

For the Sports Management Specialization, you need an Associate in Science (A.S.) or an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree from a regionally accredited college. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree doesn't meet the requirements for this track. If you have an AAS degree and want to transfer to a BAS program, consult a bachelor advisor for guidance on your coursework and next steps.

Brief Costs and Financial Aid Eligibility

If you're a Florida resident, the tuition fees for this two-year program's courses will amount to approximately $7,200. Keep in mind that this cost doesn't cover expenses for course materials or lab fees.
