Bachelor's Enrollment Steps & Deadlines at EFSC

Eastern Florida State College offers Bachelor of Applied Science Degrees in more than twenty specializations in the fields of Organizational Management, Applied Health Sciences and Computer Information Systems Technology. The College also has an online Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing Degree (RN to BSN), plus a Bachelor of Science in Science Teacher Education - Biology Teacher Specialization.

The Bachelor of Applied Science degrees and Science Teacher Education B.S. are designed for students who already hold an Associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution, including recent graduates and those with experience in the work force. The RN to BSN is for Registered Nurses who have already earned their Associate in Science Degree in Nursing (ADN) who want to build on their skills and expand beyond the field's clinical aspect.

Follow the steps below as you plan your bachelor's program — and remember once you get through Step 2, you can take care of many of the next steps simultaneously to keep the process moving forward.

2023-24 Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) and Science Teacher Education B.S. Application Deadlines:
Important Notes
  • Students will not be accepted into a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS)  or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program until final, official transcripts from all other regionally accredited colleges have been received. To allow time for processing, transcript(s) should be sent to arrive a minimum of three weeks before the Fall and Summer Term start dates and a minimum of six weeks before the Spring Term start date due to winter break.
  • EFSC students in the final term of their associate degree, must have submitted an "Intent to Graduate" form prior to submitting a bachelor's application.
  • The Priority Online Application Deadlines chart below includes the transcript process and also allows time for the required online orientation and advising appointment to clear course registration holds.
  • Because some Health Science BAS programs require program manager approval prior to acceptance, those specializations may have an earlier Priority Deadline or Application Close date than other BAS or B.S. programs to allow time for the review process.
  • Applications received after the Priority Deadline and before the Application Closing Date will be processed, but may not allow sufficient time to start at the beginning of the term and class selection is more limited for shorter, "parts of term" courses.

Apply Online

Students who wish to apply for any Bachelor's Degree program must do so using EFSC's Online Application for Admission.

A one-time, non-refundable $30 application fee applies to applicants without an EFSC associate's degree. This fee can be paid 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.

Please note that application processing can take up to 14 days due to the current volume of applications. Check your email frequently for your acceptance letter.

Residency Declaration

Upon completion of your application, you will need to complete a residency declaration and provide supporting documentation. The Florida Residency Guidelines will walk you through the process and provide a listing of state approved documents. Non-Florida residents must also complete the declaration. Submit completed declaration and supporting documentation to your nearest EFSC campus Admissions department or to your myEFSC dropbox – Admissions.

Campus admission office addresses are on the Residency Information sheet and on our main admissions contact page.

Step 3:  Request all your final, official college transcripts

Submission of all final, official, non-EFSC college transcript(s) indicating the coursework taken and the degree(s) awarded is required. A transcript with courses in progress is not considered a final transcript. Official college transcripts will not be accepted in the Student Document Dropbox in your myEFSC Student Portal

As soon as you've submitted an online EFSC bachelor's application, you should request all final, official transcripts from regionally accredited colleges be sent to the EFSC Office of the Registrar. Whenever possible, sending transcripts electronically is preferred and faster: please request that they be sent to

Please have all paper college transcripts mailed to the Office of the Registrar, 1519 Clearlake Rd, Cocoa, Florida 32922.

See more about the process of sending official college transcripts to EFSC.

Students with international transcripts from outside the U.S. are required to obtain a course-by-course evaluation from an approved company. Review the International Transcript Info site for more details.

Note: An official high school transcript is required only if the transcript is being used to document completion of two consecutive years of one foreign language.

Step 4:  Apply for Financial Aid

You should start the process of applying for financial aid as early as possible. There is no need to wait until you are accepted to the college. Just release the information to us and we can start a file. Our Title IV Code is 001470.

Every 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. Most scholarship applications require a current FAFSA to be on file. Returning students please remember, you must reapply each year.

Step 5:  Complete orientation and meet with a Bachelor's Degree advisor

Once you are accepted into your Bachelor Degree of choice, you must complete a Bachelor's Orientation and meet with a Bachelor Degree Advisor prior to registering for your first semester of classes. Bachelor Degree Orientation ensures that you understand the policies and processes related to the Bachelor Degree specializations. At the Bachelor Degree advising session, you will review a personalized course plan to aid in registration. After your initial advising appointment, students are expected to register for courses online through the TitanWeb application after logging in to the myEFSC portal. Registration holds are placed on all accepted Bachelor Degree student records until orientation and advising are completed.

If you have been accepted into an EFSC Bachelor's program you can complete these two requirements in the following way:

Complete online orientation and schedule a separate Bachelor Degree advising appointment.

•  Access online orientation through the myEFSC Portal with your B-Number and Password. Once logged in, click the Student Orientation/Titan Preview icon to begin the orientation.

Use the links below to schedule bachelor advising appointments, with the available methods (phone, MS Teams or on-campus) varying by campus.

IMPORTANT: Students must be officially accepted into a Bachelor Degree program in order to have access to the online orientation option. It is NOT a step that can be completed prior to your acceptance. Please complete the online orientation prior to your scheduled appointment time.

Step 6:  Register for classes, pay your fees, get your Student ID card, parking decal & books

  • Explore the EFSC Class Schedule for current course offerings. 
  • 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 required to park on all EFSC Campuses. The annual cost is $40 (plus tax) for a decal that covers Fall, Spring and Summer terms each academic year and $20 (plus tax) for a decal purchased in a Spring or Summer term that covers both terms. Getting the permit involves a two-step process to generate a temporary permit online and then pick up the permit at your campus security office.
  • EFSC Bookstores offer on-campus service plus online ordering. At least 30 days prior to the first day of class for each term, EFSC posts a list of course materials required during the upcoming term. You can find the list at the bookstore's "Find Course Materials" 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. Check with Financial Aid about help paying for books and check the Book Allowance availability schedule.
