In accordance with the Florida Statewide 2+2 Articulation Agreement, you will automatically satisfy the lower-division general education requirements or University Core Curriculum (UCC) and have a maximum of 60 lower division credits counting towards your Bachelor’s degree at FIU.
Students transferring with a previous Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution will also be exempt from the UCC, as well as, other lower division requirements (i.e. Foreign Language, Summer and Global Learning). A maximum of 90 credits will be awarded towards your 2nd Bachelor’s degree at FIU.
However, please be advised that you may still be required to fulfill lower-division pre-requisites based on your major of choice. We strongly recommend that you check your Panther Degree Audit (PDA) and meet with your academic advisor to determine your academic program status.

Your Critical Reminders: Submit a final transcript with your AA degree ‘posted’ within your first semester at FIU.
