    From catalog on the BC website, CHM1032 is no longer listed as a Pre-req. See below. http://www.broward.edu/academics/pro...brary/2127.pdf

    This is great news for some of us! However, reality is that you still need to take the class since it's a prerequisite to Micro. AND, they highly recommend that you take Micro before you start program. So what exactly did they solve? Only thing I can see is that it no longer factors into your pre-req gpa.

    You're right. Not sure what they were trying to do...but have certainly created enough confusion. Maybe that's why some students have been told they are still going to accept CHM course instead of math for Jan. Otherwise, it's going to be a big surprise to some students who may not know of these changes and think they've completed all the pre-reqs when they apply for Jan.

    Wonder how they are going to calculate the pre-req gpa for those who have taken both the CHM and the now req Math?

    What do they mean by General education math? College algebra or??

    Omg. Just noticed this posted today. When and if anyone gets the real scoop on what's going to be required for January applicants, please, please post. http://www.broward.edu/admissions/Do...ements2013.pdf

    I dropped the Micro this summer to take the supposedly required math for January and registered for micro in the fall. Now the math req appears to be delayed but does the attached mean that Micro is a prereq before you can apply?

    OMGoodness!

    I just read the new requirement for the 2013-14 and beyond; and this change is very surprising. They have revised and changed their whole NP requirement to make is more challenging for those who want to apply and seek admission. I guess they have been saturated with so much applicants that they had to make it more difficult for those future prospect. As for the HESI you have to pass it on the first try, 80% and above, if not, you will have to wait 6 month to retake it again! Crazy! Also, Micro will be factored into the GPA; and Math is a general requirement that is needed as well before anyone applies.

    Hello, Im new here. Ive turned in my application for Jan 2013!!!

    I think they had to update the requirements because last term there was over 500 people applying for about 200 seats.Its dumb that they updated it now, when alot of people have turned in an application and now dont meet the new standards. I believe I still met all of the requirements.They havent updated my application status.I think I will have 10 points :/ ....."Pre Program Application" is the status, is that what everyone elses is too??
    Ive emailed a counsiler about it, I think they should of updated mine by now.I really dont like how you have to hunt people down to get things done at this school!

    I just read a post from you regarding Keiser...if you read the PDF. admission policy they have changed it. They made it very clear that GPA and Hesi scores will determine your eligibility to the program. Points are no longer a factor. They require that you two which a six month gap between them, unlike before when you were able to take it as much as possible toget the

They made it very clear that GPA and Hesi scores will determine your eligibility to the program. Points are no longer a factor. They require that you take the test two times with a six month gap between them, unlike before when you were able to take it as much as possible to get the score you desired.
