Transferring to Greater Opportunities

Transferring Credits to UF

In general, students can transfer 60 credit hours from community colleges as part of the hours needed for their UF degree, regardless of when these hours are earned, subject to university and college degree requirements. It is the prerogative of the student's UF college to determine how transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's course requirements.

Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree recipients from Florida public community colleges who continue enrollment at the school that awarded the A.A. may be granted additional transfer credit for one or more courses that satisfy their UF degree requirements.

Refer to the Office of Admissions' transfer credit evaluation practices as well as to the university's official transfer credit policy for complete information.

Junior/senior-level (courses numbered 3000-4000) course requirements for the major must be completed at UF or, with permission of the student's UF college, at another baccalaureate degree-granting institution. At least 25 percent of semester credit hours must be earned through instruction at the University of Florida.

Accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools states that an adequate number of hours with appropriate prerequisites must be required in courses above the elementary level. The University of Florida interprets this, based on commonly accepted good practice, to mean 30 credits in 3000/4000-level courses.

Courses completed with grades of D or higher at other regionally accredited degree-granting institutions or institutions fully accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education, that participate in the statewide course numbering system and that reasonably parallel the curriculum at this university will be accepted for transfer credit as hours earned. It is the prerogative of the student's college to determine how transfer credit satisfies the specific degree's course requirements.

Students are required to submit final official transcripts from all institutions attended before or during their enrollment at UF. Failure to declare attendance at another institution can invalidate admission to UF and any credits or degrees earned.
