Credits earned from Florida public institutions will be evaluated on the basis of the Florida Statewide Course Numbering System. Those courses considered equivalent will be accepted for transfer credit at the level at which the course was classified by the institution originally awarding the credit. Courses are considered equivalent when the prefix and the last three numerical digits of the course number are the same. Courses not considered equivalent may be accepted for transfer credit at the discretion of the departmental chairperson.
All grades earned at other regionally accredited institutions are entered on a student?s record at the time of transfer exactly as earned. Such grades are averaged separately from grades earned at UWF and are not considered in the UWF GPA. Transfer grades are used in determining baccalaureate honors. Transfer courses appear on the UWF transcript.
The University accepts the A.A. degree from Florida public institutions at face value.
College work completed with satisfactory grades by a student at a regionally accredited institution of higher learning prior to graduation from high school will be considered under the same guidelines as other transfer work. The Office of Admissions must be provided an official transcript of such work.
GRADUATE TRANSFER CREDIT (MASTERS AND SPECIALISTS)
Students whose programs consist of 30 to 36 semester hours may have a maximum of six semester hours or two courses (whichever is greater in credit) of graduate work at other universities accepted toward their program requirements at UWF. The department chairperson?s permission is required.
Students whose programs consist of more than 36 semester hours may have
a maximum of 10 semester hours of graduate work from other universities
accepted toward their program requirements at UWF.
All hours transferred into the Ed.D. program must align with the professional core and specialization course requirements. Students admitted into the Ed.D. program must enroll in at least 39 semester hours in the Ed.D. program at UWF (21 hours coursework and 18 hours dissertation). Exceptions on transfer work and the 39 hour rule will be determined by the Ed.D. Program Committee.
Students choosing to petition for a larger number of hours to be credited to the Ed.D. program must submit an ?Ed.D. Student Petition? form to the College of Professional Studies Graduate Office.
