University Requirements - CLAST

CLAST is designed to test the communication and computation skills judged by state university and community college faculty as necessary for successful performance and progression through the baccalaureate level. Passing scores on the test, or satisfaction through approved alternatives, are required by Florida statutes and the State Board of Education. Students can determine whether they have satisfied this requirement by looking at their degree audit on ISIS.

The test is administered three times a year to university students as well as to community college students who are completing Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees and are seeking admission to programs in state universities in Florida. Transfer students who do not satisfactorily complete the test (or its approved alternatives) will not be admitted.

Registration for UF course work and awarding of the A.A. certificate after earning 60 hours are contingent upon satisfaction of CLAST.

CLAST also applies to students transferring to Florida state universities from Florida private colleges and out-of-state colleges.

  • Transfer students with fewer than 96 semester hours must satisfy the CLAST requirement by the end of the first term of enrollment at UF.
  • Transfer applicants with more than 96 hours must have satisfied the CLAST requirement before admission to the university.

The Office of Academic Technology in Turlington Hall, Room 1012, coordinates information and registration for CLAST.
