Articulation Agreements and Institutional Agreements
To support the transfer of students from partnership institutions into four-year programs, the University of North Florida adheres to formalized articulation agreements. This section outlines the types of articulation agreements accepted at UNF. For more information about articulated programs, please contact the Office of Records and Registration.
Statewide 2+2 Articulation Agreement
Established in 1971, Florida's Statewide Articulation Agreement (codified in Section 1007.23, Florida Statutes and Chapter 6A-10.024, Florida Administrative Code) provides the foundation for the Associate in Arts degree as the most direct means of transferring from a Florida state college to one of the 12 state universities. Under this agreement, students who graduate from one of the state colleges with an Associate in Arts degree are guaranteed the following:
- admission to one of the 12 state universities (not including limited access or teacher certification programs or a major program requiring an audition) *admission to the student's preferred public postsecondary institution or program is not guaranteed,
- acceptance of at least 60 semester hours by the state university
- adherence to the state university requirements and policies, based on the catalog in effect at the time the student first entered the state college (provided the student maintains continuous enrollment),
- transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course Numbering System.
UNF adheres to the policies laid out under the Statewide Articulation Agreement. Students wishing to apply to UNF are subject to all admissions policies and procedures. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must meet admission requirements and all posted deadlines.
Associate in Science (AS) to Bachelor of Science (BS) Articulation Agreement
The Associate in Science (AS) to Bachelor of Science (BS) Articulation Agreement (also know as The Career Ladder agreement) integrates specific associate in science degree programs with identified baccalaureate degree programs statewide. Each associate in science degree program must meet specific requirements as prescribed in the agreement. Public postsecondary institutions are required to honor the transfer of credit toward the specified baccalaureate degree.
Graduates of a Florida state college associate in science degree program that contains a documented agreement maintained by the Articulation Coordinating Committee shall be granted admission to a public postsecondary institution in the designated program articulate with their degree, except for limited access program and those requiring specific grades on particular courses for admission. Admission to the student's preferred public postsecondary institution or program is not guaranteed.
UNF accepts the following Career Ladder programs:
- AS in Nursing to BSN in Nursing
- AS in Business Administration to BBA in Business Management
- AS in Criminal Justice Technology to BA in Criminal Justice
For additional state requirements and specifics regarding transferability of credits, read this FLDOE document.
Students wishing to apply to UNF under this agreement are subject to all admissions policies and procedures. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must meet admission requirements and all posted deadlines. Students contact UNF before applying through this agreement.
Interinstitutional Articulation Agreements
- Florida State College at Jacksonville
- St Johns River State College
- Florida Gateway College
- Santa Fe State College
UNF has entered
into collaborative blanket academic agreements with the aforementioned state colleges in the Northeast
Florida catchment basin to broaden and detail AA degree partnerships under the jurisdiction
of the Statewide 2+2 Agreement. UNF encourages and welcomes such agreements
with all interested state colleges as an ongoing commitment to facilitating
proactive and positive persistence for our shared students.
Program Specific Agreements
When there is interest from both parties, UNF welcomes
and encourages program-specific AS and Limited Access AA academic agreements with other institutions.
Dual Enrollment Agreements
and welcomes academic cooperation with school districts, private high
schools, and home educated students in the North Florida catchment basin. These partnerships allow
high school students the opportunity to take credit-bearing college level
coursework prior to high school graduation as codified in Section 1007.271, Florida Statutes and Chapter 6A-14.064, Florida Administrative Code.
Before a public or private high school student can apply to take Dual Enrollment coursework, a district-level or private school-level blanket articulation agreement must be in place. Students wishing to apply must work with their school counselor for advisement and approval. Home education students are eligible to approach UNF directly in order
to apply for dual enrollment.
agreements are kept on file in the Office of Records and Registration.
