Bachelor Degree Programs
Eastern Florida State College offers the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) and Bachelor of Science degrees. These baccalaureate degree programs are strategically designed based on community need and input. At EFSC, students can earn a bachelor’s degree at a fraction of the cost of a university or private college. Courses are offered in a variety of formats (including online and hybrid) to meet the needs of busy professionals.
Continuous Enrollment and Governing Catalog
See more information under the Graduation Section
A student must graduate under the degree requirements of any EFSC catalog in effect at the time of the student’s initial continuous enrollment in a bachelor’s program. However, courses may change (for example, in credit hours or in prerequisites) or be discontinued as a result of curricular review. Students must meet the course prerequisite requirements in effect at the time they take the course.
Continuous enrollment is defined as completing at least one course within three consecutive terms. Completion of a course means student earned a grade in the course, including a letter grade, I, or W%. Spring, summer, and fall are each considered a term.
- After three consecutive terms of non-attendance, student will be inactivated and catalog term will be updated upon readmission.
- In all instances, students who return to EFSC after enrolling at another college or university (except with transient or cross-registration permission) must follow the College’s graduation requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of their readmission.
Non-Bachelor Students Request to Take Bachelor Courses

Apply for Admission: Students must complete the online Application for Admission to the bachelor’s program at Eastern Florida State College and pay applicable application fees. See the "Programs and Admission Requirements” listing for specific admission requirements. Students who are in their last semester of the Associate’s degree may also apply.
Request Admissions Credentials: Request the associate’s degree transcripts and all previous non-EFSC college transcripts to be sent to:
Office of the Registrar
Eastern Florida State College
1519 Clearlake Rd

Transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar’s Office for courses applicable to the selected degree program. While an AAS degree is not acceptable for entrance into BAS programs, if the student has an AAS degree, or an associate’s degree that is not from a regionally accredited institution, but one that is accredited by a body recognized by the U.S. Department of education, a course-by-course evaluation will be done in accordance with EFSC’s transfer practices to determine course transfer eligibility.
