Florida community college applicants to the College of Health and Human Performance must complete an Associate of Arts degree and meet all university and college-specific requirements. Admission evaluation factors include academic record, cumulative grade point average, performance in prerequisite courses, extent to which the applicant exceeds minimum requirements, and achievements and career goals as stated in the letter of intent. The admission review process is a holistic review of the applicant’s overall record and potential in the chosen academic field.
