Are you thinking of transferring to Flagler College from another college or university? We’d love to hear from you. Since 1968, Flagler College has provided exactly the right combination of world-class academics, extracurricular activities, professional training, athletics, and college living for the thousands of alumni who once called this campus home, and Flagler might just be the perfect college for you, too.
Don’t let the seemingly complex process of transferring schools slow you down. We’ll walk you through it—our admissions counselors are interested in helping you find the right fit to complete your undergraduate education.
First, if you are transferring from another institution, you must be in good standing with a satisfactory grade point average for all work attempted, and you must be eligible to return to the institution you last attended. Applicants with a cumulative transfer GPA of 2.0 or less are strongly encouraged to complete course work at a regionally accredited institution and work toward raising their overall transfer GPA before applying to Flagler College.
Additional requirements are as follows:
- Transfer applicants from four-year institutions may receive a maximum of 75 semester hours of credit awarded.
- Applicants who transfer from junior or community colleges will be allowed no more than 64 semester hours of credit toward the completion of degree requirements at Flagler.
- Recipients of the Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree are generally admitted at the junior level
- Applicants who transfer from senior institutions must complete the last 45 semester hours at Flagler, not including departmentally-required internships
- Transfer applicants will be required to submit ACT or SAT scores at the discretion of the Admissions Transfer Coordinator. (EXCEPTION: Education and Coastal Environmental Science Major transfer applicants, see below.
- Transfer credits will generally be granted for courses in which a grade of “C” (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better was earned from regionally accredited institutions. Quality points earned for transfer credits are not used in computing a student’s grade point average at Flagler.
- Students who have successfully completed the requirements for an A.A. degree may transfer up to three courses in which a “D” grade was earned, provided the total number of transfer credits does not exceed 64 semester hours.
- The amount of transfer credit and advanced standing allowed by the College will be determined by the Registrar. In some instances, the department chair is consulted prior to awarding transfer credits. Transfer students are responsible for submitting all official transcripts, CLEP, IB, AICE, or AP score reports, and for confirming their level of advanced standing prior to registering for classes at Flagler.
Prospective Education or Coastal Environmental Science Major transfer applicants are required to submit official score reports from either the SAT or ACT. In addition, a minimum test score is required for students planning to major in Education. All Education majors must have a combined score (critical reading plus mathematics) of at least 1010 on a single administration of the SAT or a composite score of at least 21 on the ACT. Please note that if students have already completed their A.A. degree, the minimum test score requirement for the Education department will not apply to their application.
