Transfer Student Bill of Rights

Those who earn an Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) from a Florida public university, state college, or community college are guaranteed certain rights under the Statewide Articulation Agreement. A list of rights is provided below: 

  • Admission to one of the state universities, except to limited access programs which have additional admission requirements;
  • Acceptance of at least 60 semester hours by the state universities toward the baccalaureate degree;
  • Adherence to university requirements and policies based on the catalog in effect at the time the student first entered a Florida public college, provided the student maintains continuous enrollment;
  • Transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course Numbering System;
  • Acceptance by the state universities of credit earned in accelerated programs (i.e., CLEP, AP, Excelsior College Examinations, Dual Enrollment, Early Admission, International Baccalaureate, and University of Cambridge International Examinations);
  • No additional General Education Core requirements;
  • Advance knowledge of selection criteria for limited access programs; and
  • Equal opportunity with native university students to enter limited access programs.

A.A. students who feel they have not been accorded their rights should contact One Stop Student Services.

Members of the community who believe that they have not been accorded rights under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 may submit inquiries to the Office of Equal Opportunity Programs.
