Transfer & Transition Services

Transfer Private Out-of-State

Transfer students who are not transferring in with an AA degree from a Florida public institution or coming from a private or out-of-state institution will be held to the general University transfer credit policy and may need to work with an advisor to have a course-by-course evaluation of their transfer credits, both for the University Core Curriculum (UCC) and/or for their Major.

Your Critical Reminders:

Attend mandatory Transfer Orientation! As an attendee you will receive an updated academic audit showing how your transfer courses have been evaluated for the UCC.

What you need to know.

  4. State & University Requirements
    Aside from major course requirements, all students are required to meet certain University and State requirements. We recommend that you look to your Panther Degree Audit (PDA) to determine whether those respective sections are showing as 'satisfied'.
    University Requirements:
    1. University Core Curriculum (UCC)
      * Not required for Florida Public AA Transfers
    2. Global Learning
    State Requirements:
    1. Foreign Language Competency or FLENT/FLEX
    2. Summer Enrollment
      * Not required for Florida Public AA Transfers
  5. Transfer Credit Policies & Procedures

    If possible, we recommend that you attend Transfer Orientation prior to requesting your course evaluations. Also, check your Panther Degree Audit (PDA) before you begin the evaluation process because most or if not all of your courses may have already been applied to your degree requirements.
