Transfer Student Admission Requirements

Transferring as a Freshman or Sophomore (Lower-Level Transfer) 

Students who apply with fewer than 60 transferable semester hours (90 transferable quarter hours) of college course work will be considered for admission to the freshman or sophomore class. Admission requirements will vary by major, term, and space-availability. In order to be considered, the following criteria must be met:

  • Satisfy the same admissions requirements as incoming freshmen applicants, including meeting the State University System sliding scale with high school GPA and SAT/ACT scores. 
  • Display evidence of a competitive profile and demonstrated academic success in college-level course work. 
  •  Meet or exceed a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.0 (“C”) or higher, including a “C” or higher average and “good standing” status (eligible to return) at the most recent college attended. 

Meeting the above-referenced state minimum GPA requirement does not guarantee admission to the University. Applicants who exceed the minimum are most competitive for admission as a transfer student if space is available. In determining an applicant’s admissibility, the University may consider personal qualities and talents in addition to academic accomplishments.

Listed below are the minimum required materials for lower-level students to submit in order to be evaluated for an admission decision. Additional documentation may be requested.

  •  Admission application
  • $30 application fee
  • Official high school transcripts
  • Official SAT/ACT test scores
  • Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, including dual enrollment credits from high school
  • Official transcripts from any other credit-earning mechanisms, including AP, AICE, CLEP, DANTES, IB, and any military SMART/AARTS/JST transcripts

All transcripts and test scores must be official, arriving to One Stop Student Services directly from the awarding institution or in the original, sealed envelope. Unofficial documents and those received after the posted deadline will not be accepted.

Transferring as a Junior or Senior (Upper-Level Transfer)

Students who have completed an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree at a Florida public post-secondary institution (university, community, state, or junior college); students who fall under the provisions of specific articulated programs; or students who have completed a minimum of 60 transferable semester hours (90 transferable quarter hours) of college credit may be considered for admission as a junior or senior. Admission requirements will vary by major, term, and space-availability.

In order to be considered, applicants must meet or exceed a cumulative college GPA of 2.0 or higher, including a "C" or higher average and "good standing" status at the most recent college attended. Meeting the minimum GPA requirement does not guarantee admission to the University. Applicants who exceed the minimum are most competitive for admission as a transfer student if space is available. In determining an applicant's admissibility, the University may consider personal qualities and talents in addition to academic accomplishments.

Listed below are the minimum required materials for upper-level students to submit in order to be evaluated for a decision. Additional documentation may be requested, and additional requirements may exist for students applying to limited access/selective admissions programs or international students.    

  • Admission application
  • $30 application fee
  • Official transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended, including dual enrollment credits from high school
  • Official transcripts from any other credit-earning mechanisms, including AP, AICE, CLEP, DANTES, IB, and any military SMART/AARTS/JST transcripts. 

All transcripts and test scores must be official, arriving to One Stop Student Services directly from the awarding institution or in the original, sealed envelope. Unofficial documents and those received after posted deadlines will not be accepted.

Applicants transferring directly after earning an A.A. degree from a Florida public institution and applicants transferring under the provisions of an existing articulation agreement will receive priority consideration for admission.

Applicants transferring to the University without earning an A.A. degree from a Florida public institution must display evidence of a competitive profile and demonstrated academic success in college-level coursework. In order to be considered, applicants must meet or exceed a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.0 (“C”) or higher, including a “C” or higher average and “good standing” status (eligible to return) at the most recent college attended.

Meeting the minimum GPA requirement does not guarantee admission to the University. Applicants who exceed the minimum are most competitive for admission as a transfer student if space is available. In determining an applicant’s admissibility, the University may consider personal qualities and talents in addition to academic accomplishments.

Additional restrictions apply for students applying to Limited Access and Selective Admission programs.
