What is a transfer applicant?

Any student who has earned at least 12 semester hours (not remedial) of college credit following graduation from high school is considered a transfer applicant.

 

Transfer applicants with less than 60 semester or 90 quarter hours of college work are considered lower-level transfers and  are required to  meet all first time in college freshman requirements in accordance with Florida Board of Education Admission Rules and the Board of Governors Admission Regulations.  A minimum 2.50 grade point average in all college work is required and must be in good academic standing at the last institution attended.

 

NOTE:  A transfer admitted pending receipt of the final college transcript with at least 60 semester/90 quarter hours must provide the final transcript prior to an initial registration.  Failure to complete the required hours with at least a 2.00 grade point average will result in admission being revoked.
