Dual Enrollment Credit

Complete regulations for transfer credit.

In general, students may transfer up to 60 credit hours from community colleges as part of the hours needed for their UF degrees, regardless when these hours are earned, but subject to university and college degree requirements. It is the prerogative of the studentís college to determine how transfer credit satisfies the specific degreeís course requirements.

Students are required to submit to the Office of Admission final official transcripts from all institutions attended before or during their enrollment at UF.

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, the courses are considered equivalent.

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

College credit from private or out-of-state institutions earned through a dual-enrollment program will no longer transfer to UF if the course(s) completed through dual enrollment were used to meet high school graduation requirements. In order for the credit to be eligible for transfer to the university, students must provide a letter from their high school stating that the courses they completed through dual enrollment were not used to fulfill high school graduation requirements.

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