Admissions Policies and Procedures


In keeping with the philosophy that the capabilities of each individual should be developed, Faulkner State Community College operates under an “open door” admissions policy. However, certain programs require or have specific program entry requirements. These program requirements are listed in the Programs of Study section of the catalog. This policy grants admission to entering freshmen, transfer students, transient students, audit students, accelerated high school students, as well as any students seeking readmission. Act No. 91-584 passed by the Alabama State Legislature requires that all males between the ages of 18 and 26 register with the Selective Service prior to enrolling in any state institution of higher education.

Students Seeking Readmission:

Policy–Former students who have not been in attendance for one or more semesters (excluding summer semester) are required to apply for readmission. Applicants who have been admitted previously, but who did not enroll, will be required to apply for readmission.

Procedure–Students who are seeking readmission must complete an Application for Admission form, which is obtained upon request, from the Admissions Office or on our Web site.

Students seeking readmission must request that any postsecondary institution attended since leaving Faulkner State Community College mail official transcripts directly to the Admissions Office.
