Information for Transfer Students

Transfer Students with Fewer Than 60 Credit Hours
Students who have attended any college or university and who have earned 12 or more semester hours (except as high school dual-enrolled students) are considered transfer students. Transfer applicants with fewer than 60 semester hours must meet the First-Time-In-College (FTIC) admission rules. (See: Prospective Students, High School ) Transfer students without a FAMU-equivalent, lower-level architecture curriculum will be admitted into the pre-architecture program provided they meet all criteria for FTIC students and have:

  • Two years of foreign language in high school or eight semester hours (or the equivalent) of a foreign language at an accredited undergraduate institute prior to enrollment,
  • Good standing eligibility at last institution attended,
  • 60 semester hours and at least a "C" (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) in all college work attempted at an accredited institution,
  • A score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for international applicants.
Transfer Students with Associate of Arts Degrees
Students transferring with over 60 credit hours or with an Associate of Arts (AA) degree may be admitted if they have achieved:
  • A 2.5 overall GPA in their college-level courses,
  • Successful completion of the College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST),
  • Grades of "C" or better in all course work, and
  • A score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for international applicants.
Associate of Arts Degree Transfers from Pre-architecture Programs
The School of Architecture has articulation agreements with several community colleges around the state. Graduates of these programs may be admitted directly into the Upper Division at FAMU if they have met the following requirements:
  • Grade of "C" or better in calculus, physics, and all architecture (ARC) course work,
  • Completion of all course work in pre-architecture equivalent to the freshman and sophomore years of the FAMU School of Architecture curriculum,
  • ARC cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better,
  • Overall cumulative GPA of 2.5 or better,
  • Submission of the Division of Architecture APPLICATION FOR UPPER DIVISION STATUS ,
  • A score of 500 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for international applicants.

Out-of-State Transfers
Students transferring with or without an AA degree from out of state must meet all the above criteria and must submit course descriptions from all previous institutions to the School of Architecture and Engineering Technology prior to enrolling. Final placement is given only after the School evaluates all course work on a course-by-course basis. The final transcript and course descriptions of all architecture courses must be submitted to Dr. Ronald Lumpkin, Director of Student Services. These can be mailed to the following address:

Associate of Science Degree Transfers
The Associate of Science (AS) degree is a two-year terminal degree and does not assure admission or certify the applicant as having completed the general education requirements or qualify for Upper Division status. Accordingly, final determination of AS degree credits rests with the Dean of the School of Architecture.
