Transfer Applicants


What is a Transfer Applicant?

A transfer applicant is an undergraduate student with at least 12 transferable semester credit hours (not remedial) earned following graduation from high school.



All transfer Florida State College graduates who have completed a university-parallel program and an Associate of Arts degree will receive priority consideration for admission.


All Transfer Applicants Must

  • Meet application deadlines. The application, fee, and ALL transcripts must be received by the deadline.
  • Submit all postsecondary transcripts.
    Each transcript shall list all courses for which the student was enrolled each term, the status in each course at the end of the term, all grades and credits awarded, and a statement explaining the grading policy of the institution.
  • Submit all high school transcripts (transfer applicants with less than 30 transferable semester credit hours).
    Official transcripts can be sent to FAMU in two ways: paper transcript received by FAMU in a sealed envelope or electronic transcripts sent from your institution directly to FAMU. Most Florida public high schools, universities and community colleges prefer to send transcripts electronically, saving you up to two weeks response time.
  • SAT/ACT test scores are required for freshmen/sophomore transfers with less than 30 semester hours. Official scores must be sent to FAMU directly from the testing agency.
    SAT testing agency or call 609-921-9000. SATI Code: 5215

  • Official TOEFL score, if applicable. TOEFL Code: 5233
  • Submit documentation of two sequential courses of foreign language in secondary school or 8-10 sequential semester hours at the postsecondary level, or document an equivalent level of proficiency, if applicable. Applicants who do not meet the foreign Language requirement must complete two semesters (or equivalent) prior to graduation at FAMU.
  • Apply to a specific FAMU college and major.
  • Meet college and major prerequisite courses and minimum GPA requirements. Understand that meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to limited access programs. Limited access programs generally require additional application materials (Cardiopulmonary Science, Engineering, Journalism, Nursing, Pharmacy-Undergraduate, Pharmacy Professional).
  • Be in good standing and eligible to return to the last institution previously attended.
