Articulation agreements facilitate the transfer of students from associate degree
programs at community colleges to baccalaureate degree programs at universities. Students
admitted under articulation agreements enter FGCU with upper level status and are
classified juniors. Students who have earned or are intending to earn an associate
of arts or associate of science degree in an allied health care profession from State
College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota or St. Petersburg College should contact the college
for more information regarding the transfer process. Additional articulation agreements
are under discussion.
