State and Community College Relations
Types of Transfer StudentsLower Level Transfer
Any student who transfers with less than 60 credit hours will also need to meet FTIC (First Time In College) requirements. This will include High School transcripts and SAT/ACT scores in addition to any earned college credit. Visit the admissions page for more information.
Transferring with an Associate of Science A.S.
Students transferring with an A.S. from a Florida State or Community College DO NOT automatically meet the general education course requirements. A.S. applicants will have credits evaluated as part of the admission process on a course-by-course basis. There is also the option of transferring with the A.S. and pursing the Bachelor of Science in Applied Science, which would guarantee the transfer of credits. (See BSAS)
The Bachelor of Science in Applied Science (A.S. to B.S) provides students with an A.S. from a Florida State or Community College greater access to a bachelor's degree. The Applied Science program is unique in that students are awarded up to 42 credits in technical course credits ( Criminal Justice, Information Technology, Networking, etc.), and it offers 11 areas of concentration.
Transferring with an Associate of Arts A.A.
Students who have obtained an A.A. from a Florida State or Community College and have a 2.0 GPA will be guaranteed admission, automatically meet the general education requirement and transfer with at least 60 credit hours. Additional requirements may be required of students pursuing programs which are limited access. Visit the admissions page for more information.
Florida Private School Transfer
Students transferring from a non-public Florida institution will have their credentials reviewed to assess transferable credit. Many Florida private institutions have courses which are part of the Statewide Course Numbering System, which can aid the transfer of courses.
Out of State Transfer
Students transferring from an out of state institution will have their credentials reviewed to assess transferable credit. An A.A. from out of state does not guarantee transfer of credit automatically. Certain courses that have been evaluated previously from certain institutions may be part of our articulation catalog, and transfer in seamlessly. To be proactive, retain syllabi and class descriptions of courses taken, along with examples of coursework. This can assist with the course substitution request process. An advisor should be contacted to begin this process.
