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.
