Requirements for Transfer Students

If you have enrolled in a college or university after high school, and earned 12 or more credits, you are considered a transfer student. Through agreements with Florida’s 28 community and state colleges, you can transfer to FAU to complete your undergraduate studies. If you are coming from another accredited university, you should contact the Office of Admissions to see how your credits will transfer.

The Broward Campuses are part of FAU’s transfer campuses. That means we offer only upper division courses (junior and senior level) of the bachelor’s degree and a variety of graduate programs.

FAU Broward welcomes applicants who have earned an Associate’s Degree or have completed 60 or more semester hours of credit in college level work at a regionally accredited college or university.
