The articulation of general education needs with participating independent colleges and universities in Florida is beneficial for A.A. students who move to a private college or university in Florida. The State Board of Community Colleges has signed a joint agreement with the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF). This page contains information on four types of statewide joints: Specific information on the articulation between fcS and state universities can be found in Board of Governors Regulations for Articulation. Additional courses may be required at a lower level to enter a given university and not all required courses are taught at any public post-secondary university in Florida. Students with specific questions go to the academic department in which they seek admission. Florida State College in Jacksonville (FSCJ) is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), so many FSCJ courses should be broadcast to colleges and universities in the United States. However, it is up to each school to decide which courses they accept and which courses they do not accept, especially if you move to a school outside the state of Florida. If you are interested in a transmission to an institution with which THE FSCJ does not have an articulation agreement, the first step is to go to that school. Registration or registrar staff should be able to inform you of their transfer policy. You can view a copy of the FSCJ course descriptions to get an idea of the course.
The FSCJ catalogue is available online, making it easy for the school to refer to course information. Once the courses are completed, you must request an official copy of your FSCJ transcript. Potential transfers from public colleges in Florida may refer to the FACTS Common Prerequisite Manual for State University Transfer prerequisite course requirements. Transfer applicants who meet the minimum UF accreditation requirements are referred to the UF University to cover admission. Applicants who exceed the requirements mentioned in the Pre-accession Manual may be more competitive for admission to the junior level if there is room. All state universities, with the exception of New Florida College, participate in the Florida Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS), a department of education that promotes articulation and facilitates institutions in the use of common class categorization and numbering.
