Transfer Credit Evaluation Policy

In general, students may transfer up to 60 credit hours from community colleges as part of the hours needed for their UF degrees, regardless of when these hours are earned, but 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. Students are required to submit to the Office of Admissions final official transcripts from all institutions attended before or during their enrollment at UF.

Credit from Florida public community colleges and state universities:

Courses from Florida public community colleges and State University System schools generally adhere to the Statewide Course Numbering System. If the prefix (first three letters) and the last three digits of the course number are the same, then the course is considered equivalent.

Equivalent courses will generally fulfill the same requirements (e.g. General Education) that the UF course fulfills. However, whether a course fulfills UF's Writing and Math Requirement is determined by specific criteria, not course number equivalency.

Courses from private or out-of-state institutions:

Courses taken at private and out-of-state institutions need to be evaluated by the student's college to determine if they will fulfill specific requirements.
