FKCC 2014 schedule Spring Summer final web with links - page 14

FKCC is proud to have an open door admissions
policy. With the exception of the nursing program,
which is a limited access program with a selective
admission process, any and all qualified applicants
are accepted and may enter in the fall, spring, or
summer sessions. The basic application process
involves 5 steps.
Step 1.
You can submit an application online at
edu or you may print the application and submit
it via US mail. There is a one-time, non-refundable
application fee of $30.
Step 2. Requesting Your Transcripts
Be sure to provide official transcripts from any and
all schools you have previously attended. If you
have never attended college, you must arrange
to have your official high school transcript, official
home school documentation or your proof of
general equivalency diploma (GED) completion
submitted from the school directly to FKCC. If you
attended college, you must arrange to have your
official college transcripts submitted from each and
every college you attended directly to FKCC. Official
transcripts are required prior to the first term of
enrollment to complete the application process.
Step 3. Taking a Placement Test
Florida Keys Community College primary placement test,
the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) is
appropriate for those who have not taken the SAT or ACT,
or whose SAT or ACT scores are more than two years old.
PERT replaces the CPT.
The purpose of PERT is to help provide information
about your skills in the English language, reading,
and mathematics. Your test results will be used in the
academic advising process to ensure that you enroll
in the appropriate levels of English (communication/
humanities), reading, and mathematics courses.
You may need to take the PERT, if you are a degree-seeking
student, a returning student who changes to degree-
seeking status, or as well as a non-degree seeking student
who wishes to enroll in English, reading, mathematics courses, or
any course requiring college level English or math as a prerequisite.
Please call one of the three location for testing dates or check for
dates on our website,
