Useful Transfer Information

Articulation agreements will help to guarantee you certain rights in the transfer process. 
Grade forgiveness policies vary from institution to institution. Additionally, some institutions and selective admission programs may not allow grade forgiveness in the calculation of GPA and as such may recalculate your GPA at the time of application before you are considered for admission or scholarships. 

State universities in Florida have a uniformed foreign language admission requirement that can be satisfied as followed: Two years of sequential foreign language in high school, 8 – 10 college credits of sequential study in one foreign language in college, or CLEP exams. Please note that American Sign Language will satisfy the foreign language requirement for university admission but may not satisfy graduation requirements for some majors. To be safe, always contact your transfer institution or department for more specific information on the foreign language requirement. 

Limited access programs have a competitive process of selection for admission purposes. Many of them have additional admission requirements such as a higher GPA, test scores, additional coursework, auditions, essays, portfolios and/or completion of prerequisite coursework before being able to apply. It is important to meet with an Advisor in your selective admission program of choice in order to ensure you meet all of their requirements. Remember, their requirements may change so stay in touch with them regularly.
