Transferring to CHS: Course Requirements

University Requirements: Admission by Transfer

Applicants are considered transfer students if they have earned twelve or more semester hours of college credit from a regionally accredited college or university (or comparable international institution) as evaluated by the Office of Admissions after graduation from high school. Applicants desiring admission by transfer must provide the Office of Admissions with the following:

Application for Admission. The completed application for admission and a nonrefundable $30.00 processing fee should be submitted six to nine months prior to the desired term of enrollment. The preferred method of payment is online at http://fees.fsu.edu. If payment is by check or money order, it must be made payable to Florida State University and drawn on a U.S. bank. The application will not be processed without this fee, and there are no provisions to have it waived or postponed.

College Transcripts. Official transcripts from each college and university attended must be submitted to the Office of Admissions. Transfer credit posted on the record of another institution is not accepted in lieu of submitting the official transcript from the original institution. Transcripts are considered official when they are sent directly from the college or university to the Office of Admissions and contain an official seal and/or signature. Transcripts bearing the statement "Issued to Student," notarized transcripts, or transcripts submitted by the applicant are not considered official. [An official course-by-course evaluation is required of all academic records from non-U.S. institutions. Refer to 'Transfer Credit' in the "International Student Admission" section of this chapter for details.]

Secondary School Record. An official high school transcript is required of all transfer applicants. The transcript must reflect all attempted high school credits and the date of graduation.

Test Scores. Effective Spring 2017, applicants are not required to submit the optional ACT writing score or the SAT essay score.

Exam Results. All AICE, AP, IB, and/or CLEP results should be submitted if college credit has been earned. Refer to the tables at the end of the "Academic Regulations and Procedures" chapter in this General Bulletin for required scores and course equivalents for which credit is granted.
