Admissions Qualifications

  • A student in good standing at another institution who is eligible to return to that institution may apply to enter Florida College as a transfer student. Prospective transfer students should complete all the steps in applying for admission.
  • Transfer applicants should have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 on previous college-level work. Students whose grade point average is below 2.0 may appeal for probationary admission with a letter addressed to the academic dean (mailed to the admissions office). The letter should explain any mitigating circumstances that affected the GPA; it should also express the applicant’s motivation and commitment. The academic dean will notify the applicant of the admission decision.
  • Transfer students must provide official transcripts from all colleges they have attended. Failure to report previously attempted college-level work constitutes a falsification of application and may cause a student to be suspended and to lose all Florida College credit.
  • Application materials should reach the office of admissions by August 1 for fall enrollment and December 1 for spring enrollment.



Transfer Credit

Florida College accepts credits from regionally accredited colleges and universities. The A.A. degree from such institutions is accepted as block credit. When transfer credit is considered course by course, no grade below “C” is accepted. The registrar, with the help of the academic dean, evaluates transcripts to determine what credits will be accepted and what credit will be granted for courses not parallel with those offered by Florida College.

The College does not award credit for basic military training, Defense Activities for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) or life or work experiences. Credit for military courses and training may be granted on the basis of a formal evaluation by the registrar and credit recommendations in the American Council on Education (ACE) guide.
