Lower division transfer students with fewer than 60 credit hours must meet all of FSU's Liberal Studies requirements, except for those that are transferred in from the previous institution. Transfer students are not required to take an E-Series course. Starting in Fall 2018, Civic Literacy is required of all transfer students with the exception of those who started as a degree-seeking student at another Florida public college or university prior to Fall 2018.
For students having completed an AA at another Florida institution, the previously completed coursework will be understood to have met all of the initial 36 hours of FSU's Liberal Studies requirements, including the E-Series requirement. The student must still meet certain graduation requirements at FSU or with credit transferred from another institution, which includes the following required coursework:
The Scholarship in Practice , Upper-Division Writing, Oral Communication Competency, and Computer Competency requirements may be met by required coursework in the student's major. Transfer students are not required to take an E-Series course.
For upper-division transfer students who have completed at least 60 credit hours at an out-of-state institution, courses will be transferred individually as appropriate. Students who have not yet met the requirements for Florida's Statewide Core will need to complete the core.
These students must also meet FSU graduation requirements, which include the following:
The Scholarship in Practice, Upper-Division Writing, Oral Communication Competency, and Computer Competency requirements may be met by required coursework in the student's major.
The new Liberal Studies requirements take effect for entering students beginning in Summer C of 2015.
