    One more question.. does anyone have their degree audit up on the UCF website yet? I e-mailed admissions and they said it took a while for it to be completed and that they still weren't finished with spring admissions yet. Just curious if anyone had theirs yet!

    Thanks!!
    I'm having trouble with getting my degree audit to show up as well. I called today and was told by undergrad admissions and registrars office that it may not show up until I'm officially accepted to UCF. I got in touch with Heather in advising at CON and she's looking into it for me since we should be able to see it. UCF has had my transcripts for almost a month now and I thought they would've been available. I was going to just manually calculate my GPA for the CON application since I have classes from two different undergrad institutions for my bachelors, but I'm worried if some of the classes I took for my previous major wouldn't transfer to UCF, etc. Still waiting to hear back, but I'm so anxious to get my application in.

    88% is great!! I got 86 and was told that I should be fine. From what I heard from other they look closely at your science prerequisites and overall GPA.

    My scores are:
    TEAS - 86%
    Prerequisite GPA - 4.0
    Cumulative GPA - 3.91

    Also, I attended another information session a month and a half ago and the advisor repeatedly stressed on importance of the interview.
    She said not to act like an ...a... hole , as believe it or not some people did!!
    We have 2 months to prepare to for it and ace it.

    If you hear from Heather, let me know! I'm going to call tomorrow as well. I was accepted into UCF and my transfer report is up, but no degree audit. I have read previous post about there being problems with it.

    Those are amazing stats! Mine aren't quite as good:
    Overall GPA: 3.76
    Pre-Req GPA: 3.97
    TEAS: 88

    On the plus side, I would never act like an a-hole... I'm just nervous about being able to get words out of my mouth because of nerves!!

    Hey everyone! I have a quick question. I was curious to know how you all can apply to both the Accelerated Program and the Regular BSN program if you already have a degree? I just requested an application for the acclerated program and in order to click on the regular BSN it says "if you do not have a degree"? Just wondering how you can do both.


    Thanks!!

    Heather told me to just go ahead and use an estimated GPA (which I just calculated it on my own using my transcripts) and to put that in on the application. Once the degree audit is visible, she said they will update the GPA (if it needs to be changed).

    Hey guys,

    It has been great to periodically come onto your thread to hear what has been going on. I know how nervous/ excited we were when we applied last year and we didn't even have the added stressor of the interview! :-/ anyways, I just wanted to let you know that the previous poster is correct, you just need to put an estimated GPA on the CON application, trust me they will find your correct GPA. Additionally, we did not get our degree audit until two days before we got our acceptance notices so don't be too freaked out if they haven't appeared just yet. Let me know if you have any additional questions that I may be able to help you with. Good luck, I am pulling for you all!

    Hey! I was wondering if you can explain to me about applying to both the accelerated and the regular BSN program? Did you apply to both or just one? Also, does it hurt your chances to apply to both? Sorry for the questions, just curious!

    Hey, you simply request both applications and apply! Yes, I applied to both and no it doesn't hurt your chances by doing so. You will obviously hear from the accel program first (since it starts in May) which most likely is the one you will want to be in since you will graduate sooner ...assuming that you can stick with the course load. If you cannot you will have to fall back into the basic program like some students in the accel program had to do.

    Oh okay. I just was confused at first. But thank you so much for your reply!

    Hey Nursowiczka2b (Or anyone else)

    Do you have the Fingerprinting Instruction Form or know of a link where I can find it? I think I did something wrong on the Certifiedbackground website and now I can't find it. Their support Call Center is not open on Saturdays either otherwise I'd be calling them right now

    At the moment I'm stuck at this website now:
    https://www.daontis.com/fl/from.cfm

    ^And can't proceed without an "Agency Code" which Certified Profile says
    Please click the link below to be connected with Daon's Fingerprinting website to schedule your appointment. Please use the instructions that you downloaded from Requirement 1 to guide you through this process.

    Thanks if you can help! My process here is "on pause" until I can proceed with this. :\

    Hey, maybe I can help. Did you request the application form from UCF yet? From there they should have instructions...on the certifiedbackground website, they have instructions like 1-4 on how to proceed and get fingerprints. Hope that helps? Or maybe I wasn't sure of what you were asking. lol
