Transfer to Florida Tech from EFSC

Florida Institute of Technology has long been a premier educational choice for Florida high school graduates. Florida Tech is now partnered with Eastern Florida State College to create the EFSC–Florida Tech Track. This is a dual-admission program designed to help Florida high school graduates pursue an Associate of Arts degree from Eastern Florida State College followed by a bachelor’s degree at Florida Tech’s Melbourne campus.

Who is eligible to participate in the EFSC–Florida Tech Track?

  • Any Florida high school student who has completed the full-time undergraduate application process for Florida Tech
  • Any currently enrolled Eastern Florida State College student who applies to Florida Tech before earning 30 credits at Eastern Florida State College

Which students might benefit from the EFSC– Florida Tech Track?

  • Students who need additional preparation prior to attending Florida Tech
  • The student who is admitted to Florida Tech but whose financial circumstances prevent enrollment as a full-time, first-year student
  • Currently enrolled Eastern Florida State College students who have earned fewer than 30 credits and plan to complete their full-time baccalaureate studies at Florida Tech

Transfering to Florida Tech from EFSCMust a student apply to Eastern Florida State College as well as Florida Tech to be eligible?
Yes. Students interested in the EFSC–Florida Tech Track must apply to enroll in an approved Associate of Arts degree program. All applicants to EFSC are required to submit a $25 nonrefundable application fee. As a degree seeking student, you will need to submit an official copy of your high school transcripts (showing graduation date and courses completed) or official copies of college/university transcripts from each post secondary institution attended. Applicants seeking in-state fees must show documented proof of residency for the 12 months preceding their term of enrollment.

Is the EFSC–Florida Tech Track open to students for all major areas of study at Florida Tech?
Yes. In some majors, Florida Tech hasan articulation agreement with Eastern Florida State College. In those areas where the course of study is not clearly articulated, academic advisers from Eastern Florida State College and Florida Tech will assist the student in the proper selection of courses. However, it is recommended that students enroll in the Associate of Arts degree program at Eastern Florida State College to maximize the number of transfer credits given at Florida Tech.

Students eligible for the EFSC–Florida Tech Track must request that the Student Aid Report from FAFSA be sent to both Eastern Florida State College (Code 001470) and Florida Tech (Code 001469).

Does Florida Tech offer any scholarships or grants to Eastern Florida State College students?
Eastern Florida State College graduates are awarded a EFSC-Florida Tech Achievement Grant of $6,000, equivalent to what an in-state resident would pay for the cost of an associate degree program ($3,000 will be disbursed in each of the junior and senior years at Florida Tech). If academic merit warrants, a  student will instead be awarded a Transfer or Phi Theta Kappa scholarship (he or she will be awarded the highest scholarship; they do not stack). Florida Tech Connection students are eligible for admissions incentives and need- based financial assistance. The Florida Tech Army ROTC program also offers full tuition scholarships to students with the desire to become commissioned U.S. Army officers.
