B.S. Health Sciences - Admission Requirements


This degree plan is designed as a two-year program for students with an AA, AS or AAS degree from a State of Florida community college or an equivalent Associate's degree from an accredited out-of-state college or university. This program is open to all UWF and transfer students. A maximum of 72 semester hours or credits can be transferred and applied towards the BSHS degree. State required common prerequisites must be completed prior to graduation but are not required for admission to the program. In order to graduate, all students must complete at least 120 semester hours (community college/university), with a minimum of 48 specified upper-division hours (3000/4000 level) at UWF. A grade of "C" or higher is required in all common prerequisite courses and major courses.

Prior to admission or before graduation, students must meet the SUS general education requirements, satisfy the state's Gordon Rule (outlined in the UWF catalog) and the state foreign language requirement. The foreign language requirement may be satisfied by two years of the same foreign language in high school, or 8-semester hours of the same foreign language in college.
