    • Selection criteria will not discriminate against Florida community college transfer students in favor of public university students who are applying for admission or who plan to continue enrollment after completion of 60 semester hours at the lower division level.
    • Where necessary to achieve established equal access enrollment goals, some students may be admitted to the program using different criteria.
