Eastern Florida State College Graduate


Florida’s higher education system is designed to allow students to successfully pursue a bachelor's degree by first earning an associate in arts degree at a Florida college and then transferring to a four-year institution. This approach to earning a four-year degree is commonly referred to as the "2+2 system". The state of Florida guarantees that students who complete an AA degree at a Florida college have the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree at a state university or Florida college offering four-year degrees.

For more information on the 2+2 system, refer to the 
Statewide 2+2 Articulation Agreement: A Guide to Florida's Policies.

Dual Enrollment

It is required by Florida Law for each school district in the state to offer Dual enrollment to any student who scores high enough on a standardized test. View Dual Enrollment Agreements by County and College

Associate in Science to Bachelor’s Degree Programs

The Associate in Science (AS) degree is the two-year degree offered by Florida colleges to prepare students for direct entry into the workforce. Some programs offer transfer options into related bachelor’s degree programs. Many Florida college baccalaureate programs accept the AS degree in 2+2 transfer. For more information, please contact the college or university to which you wish to transfer.

Transfer Agreements with Nonpublic Institutions

The Florida College System has transfer agreements with many of the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) and other nonpublic institutions. This allows Florida College System graduates to transfer into private institutions with the guarantee the student will enter as a junior, receive at least 60 credit hours toward the bachelor’s degree and receive recognition for the general education core. Visit the Florida Virtual Campus’ Advising Manuals to view the agreements.

Concurrent- or Joint-Use Programs

Florida offers unique opportunities for earning a bachelor’s degree at a Florida college campus. In some cases, these bachelor’s degrees are offered through partnerships with state universities or accredited private institutions. The coursework may be offered through traditional classroom instruction at the college or through distance learning options.
