Transfer Credits

Apply Transfer Coursework to UCC Requirements

The Panther Degree Audit (PDA) automatically recognizes FIU courses, but it is NOT programmed to automatically recognize many transfer courses. That’s why, if you are a transfer student and wish to have your transfer courses applied to the FIU University Core Curriculum (UCC) requirements, you will need to sit with an advisor and identify relevant transfer course work. Please contact your assigned advisor for more information.

Apply Transfer Coursework to SCJ Major Requirements

Transfer students may receive credit for comparable Florida state communication courses in accordance with Statue 1007.24(7) or for 6 + semester hours of communication courses previously taken at another academic institutions with a grade of ‘B’ or higher depending on evaluation of courses transferred. Each school has the discretion of using transfer course work in partial fulfillment of major requirements. For more information, contact an academic advisor.
