Enrollment in the program is limited. Meeting the admissions requirements does not guarantee program acceptance. For this reason, the following criteria are used to determine which applicants will be admitted. The criteria listed below are used for the selection of students. Applicants will be ranked according to the number of general education courses required in program that have been successfully completed (see table below). Please note that there is no waiting list.
- Ranking of general education courses completed
- Overall Grade Point Average (GPA)
- Florida residents will be given preference over non-residents, as well as students who are reapplying to the program, if they have completed all prerequisites as of September 1st of the previous year.
