Transfer Students

If you’ve already earned credits from another college or university, you may be able to transfer credits to apply toward your online program at the University of West Florida.

Undergraduate Programs

We accept transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions. For some programs, we accept credits from the College Level Examination Program, Advanced Placement or military. Please see our catalog for a full list.

After we have received official copies of your transcripts, our transcript team and the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will review your credits to determine if they transfer to UWF, and then determine how many, if any, applied toward your degree program. Credits from pre-college, technical or vocational courses cannot be transferred.

In order for a credit to be applied toward your degree, it must be equivalent to a grade of C or higher (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) for undergraduate programs.

Graduate Programs

If you are a graduate student, you may be able to have your previously earned credits apply toward your program. We accept transfer credits from institutions that are fully accredited by a regional or national agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The credits may be applied toward your degree upon approval of your academic department and the department chairperson.

To be applied toward your degree, transfer credits for graduate programs must be equivalent to a grade of B or higher and have been earned within the past six years. Graduate credits may be accepted if older than six years if the department validates that you have current knowledge related to the course’s subject matter.

If you are transferring credits to a specialist degree, the credits must have been earned within the three years of the date of your admission but no more than seven years after your graduation date.
