Credit Transfers and Acceleration Mechanisms

For undergraduates, transfer credits are considered applicable toward graduation unless specifically noted as “non-applicable” when the student’s degree program is planned. Designation of a course as “non-applicable” is based on the length of time since its completion, relevancy to the present degree objective, accreditation status of the institution where earned, or other significant factors. For more information regarding transferability of credits, please visit the UNF Admissions webpage - Transfer Credits.

The University will accept credit awarded through one or a combination of state-approved acceleration mechanisms, not to exceed 45 credit hours. Credit awarded through state-approved acceleration mechanisms must meet the minimum scores established by the Statewide Articulation Agreement.

The state-approved acceleration mechanisms are:

  •  College Level Examination Program (CLEP) 
  •  College Board Advanced Placement (AP) 
  •  The Defense Activity For Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) (formerly United States Armed Forces Institute or USAFI) 
  •  Excelsior College Examinations
  •  Military service school credit as evaluated by the American Council on Education Guide to the evaluation of educational experiences in the armed services. (Maximum of 21 hours) 
  •   International Baccalaureate (IB) 
  •  Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) 

Up to 45 total acceleration mechanism credits may be awarded, including up to 30 credits for the IB diploma.

The University will also accept credit awarded through dual enrollment as established by the Statewide Articulation Agreement. For more information on dual enrollment, click here
