Frequently Asked Questions

We generally admit students who have earned an A.A. (Associate of Arts) degree at the junior level. If you’ve earned your A.A. or have 60 or more transferable credits, of which 30 are general education credits in English, Math, Science, Social Science, and Humanities, your Core requirements will be considered satisfied. That said, the Registrar makes all final transfer of credit decisions. 

Flagler only accepts coursework or transfer credit earned at regionally accredited institutions.

  • 75 from a four-year college or university
  • 64 from a junior or community college

  • Transfer students are admitted on a rolling basis — i.e., there’s no fixed application deadline for the Fall or Spring terms.
  • We recommend completing your application no later than June 1 for fall or Nov. 1 for spring admission.

  • No, transfer credit grades are not used for your Flagler College grade point average (GPA).
  • Your credits will generally transfer if you earned a “C” or better grade. However, there are times when schools' legends/keys may indicate a C or C- with a different grade point. Flagler needs the grade point to be 2.0 or higher.
  • Students who have completed their A.A. degree may transfer up to three courses in which they earned a “D” grade


Along with an application & an official transcript from each institution attended, we ask transfer applicants to submit SAT/ACT scores in cases where:

  • You haven’t completed one (1) non-remedial transferrable English course and one (1) non-remedial transferrable Math course when you submit your application.
  • You don’t have at least 24 transferrable credit hours completed at the time of application submission. In that case, you’ll also need to provide a copy of your final high school transcript with your application.

It's important to note that Flagler only accepts coursework or transfer credit earned at regionally accredited institutions.
