Florida College System Concurrent Students


After we receive your Memorandum of Agreement, you will receive instructions to change your major. You will submit the major change request via your myUCF portal. The College of Nursing will review and approve your major change request if appropriate.

Once your major is changed to the correct BSN track, you will be able to register for BSN courses.

 

RN to BSN Students


You will be automatically admitted into the fully online RN-BSN track with reduced tuition and fees. If you plan to remain in the fully online BSN track, no action is needed.

However, if you would like to opt-out of the fully online major in order to take any face-to-face courses or use on-campus resources, you must submit a major change through your myUCF portal.

Within 24 hours of your major change, students in the Florida College System Concurrent ASN to BSN and students in the RN to BSN programs will have access to the UCF RN Communications Center. The center contains information regarding faculty advising, plans of study, frequently asked questions, and announcements.

To access the RN Communications Center, please login to webcourses and go to courses.

The RN Communications Center and Knights email are used for all formal communication. Since this is an online program, it is your responsibility to check webcourses and Knights email often. Failure to do this will not excuse you from missing deadlines.

If you do not have access to the RN Communications Center after 48 business hours of your major change, please contact your academic advisor.

Review Resources & Information for Current Students
Maintain Physical Location Requirement

BSN students must be physically located in a Nurse Licensure Compact state for the duration of their education.

UCF College of Nursing faculty are authorized to teach in Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) states. Due to nursing education restrictions imposed by non-NLC states, UCF is unable to offer courses, clinicals, or other educational services regardless of modality within non-NLC states. Should you be physically located within a non-NLC state for more than a vacation or brief visit, regardless of your legal state of residence or the type of license you have, you will be unable to apply or continue your nursing degree program at the UCF College of Nursing. This includes, but is not limited to, students accepting traveling nurse positions in a non-NLC state.

Students may contact the College of Nursing’s Assistant Dean of Students with any questions regarding non-NLC states.
