State Mandated Common Course Prerequisites
Students wishing to transfer to USF should complete an A.A. degree at a Florida College System institution. Some courses required for the major may also meet General Education requirements thereby transferring maximum hours to the university.
If a student wishes to transfer without an A.A. degree and has fewer than 60 semester hours of acceptable credit, the student must meet the university’s entering freshman requirements including ACT or SAT test scores, GPA, and course requirements.
Transfer students are also required to comply with the immunization, foreign language, and continuous enrollment policies of the university.
Students should complete the following prerequisite courses at the lower level prior to entering the university. If these courses are not taken at a Florida College System institution, they must be completed before the degree is granted.
Unless stated otherwise, a grade of C is the minimum acceptable grade in prerequisite courses.
- ACG X021 or ACG X024 or (ACG X001 and ACG X011) - 3 credit hours
- ACG X071 or ACG X301 - 3 credit hours
- ECO X023 - 3 credit hours
- CGS X061 or CGS X100 or ISM X000 - 3 credit hours
- STA X023 - 3 credit hours
Major Core (39 Credit Hours)
It is strongly recommended that students complete GEY 2000 and MAN 3025 prior to registering for core major courses.
The following electives are not required for the major but are strongly recommended:
Other Program Information
Students in the B.S. program will only be allowed to register for the full-time internship (GEY 4945 ) after successful completion of all (or all but one) of the required courses in the B.S. major. Because the B.S. internship requires full-time effort, students will be allowed to take no more than three (3) credits concurrent with the B.S. internship. NOTE: a Level 2 background check is required for most Internships, possibly at the student’s expense.
Students interested in either Aging Sciences or Long Term Care Administration majors should contact the School of Aging Studies http://www.usf.edu/cbcs/aging-studies/advising/index.aspx as early as possible in their careers at the University of South Florida.
A grade of lower than “C-” in Aging Sciences and Business courses will not be counted toward fulfilling the requirements for the major.
Strongly Recommended Courses:
All undergraduate students in any degree program can participate in undergraduate research. There are a number of options to receive academic credit for a mentored research experience and to have the experience show on the official transcript. Students who wish to enroll in an undergraduate research course should consult with their academic advisor to understand how the credit will apply towards the degree requirements. If no credit is needed, students may be eligible to enroll in the 0-credit IDS 2912 , IDS 4914 or IDS 4910 courses. These courses will not impact degree credits or GPA but will show on an official transcript and document the experience. The Office of Undergraduate Research will assist students in understanding the various course options.
A full-time (650 hours) internship is required for students completing the Bachelor of Science Degree in Long Term Care Administration. The internship, scheduled during the last semester of the program after successful completion of all major prerequisites and all but one of the required courses, is intended to prepare students for entry-level positions in nursing home administration. Students should expect to meet with the advisor the semester prior to the internship in preparation of their field experience.
Students are strongly encouraged to meet each semester with the departmental advisor to plan courses and field work that will prepare the student for career goals.
