AA Degree Transfer to State Colleges
Upon the award of an Associate in Arts degree from Palm Beach State College, a student is guaranteed admission to one of the Florida state university system institutions or state colleges through Florida Statute 240.115. State college Associate in Arts graduates receive priority for admission to a state university over out-of-state students.
However, state college A.A. graduates are not guaranteed transfer into the college or university of their choice.
To facilitate your acceptance in your desired program of study at a state university system institution, it is vital that you carefully plan your coursework while at Palm Beach State.
Your 60 hours of credits for the AA degree includes 36 hours of general education and 24 credits of common prerequisite courses that prepare you for transfer.
Please consult with a College advisor or use the system to help plan your program of study at Palm Beach State. This will ensure your
smooth transfer to a state university system school. In addition to statewide articulation
of the AA, Palm Beach State also has transfer agreements for several programs of study.
