When you took the ACT, CLT, and/or SAT, you had the opportunity to request that your scores be sent automatically to colleges and universities that you were interested in. If you included Florida College in this list, we will receive your scores automatically. If you did not request that we receive your scores at the time of your tests, you will need to request that an official copy of your scores be sent to us directly from the testing agency. Applicants need to request the individual score reports for each test date, rather than requesting only their highest or super scores. Florida College will super score, once we receive all of the applicants scores.


Florida College accepts college credit earned by examination, following the guidelines set by the Florida Articulation Coordinating Committee, for the Advanced Placement (AP) program, Cambridge AICE program, International Baccalaureate Program, and College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Up to 45 semester hours credit may be earned by examination. No examination credit can be assigned if credit by course work is previously or subsequently awarded, or if a course in that discipline or any part thereof has been begun in college classroom work.
