If any prerequisite coursework was taken outside of the FRCC system, you must have your transcripts officially evaluated through the FRCC Office of the Registrar. All prerequisites must be transferred to your FRCC transcript before applying. Evaluations take up to 30 days to complete after the FRCC Registrar receives the official transcript and the Transfer Credit Evaluation Form. To be considered 'official', transcripts may not be issued to the student. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the previous college to the FRCC Office of the Registrar.

Students are responsible for making sure they are eligible to register for MAT 103 if admitted to the program. Please discuss course eligibility with your Pathway advisor.

You must submit the current verification form. Your employer must verify the number of hours worked as a licensed LPN (1000 hours minimum within the last five years). *Use one verification form for each position.
