This course may be taken prior to or during the same term.
The following outlines the general processing of all Transfer students to the University of West Florida. These procedures are encompassed in UWF Regulation 3.032, approved by the University of West Florida Board of Trustees in June 2012. Until this approval, transfer student admission practices had been contained within the FTIC admission protocol. In June 2012, these procedures were developed into their own regulation.
The minimum admission requirements expected of transfer students are established by and are set forth in BOG Regulation 6.004. Satisfaction of the BOG minimum requirements does not automatically guarantee admission to the University of West Florida. The BOG regulation requires the transfer applicant to:
The admission of transfer students to UWF shall be in accordance with the University’s mission and goals and shall comply with any enrollment limitations established by the BOG or the University.
Some academic programs require a portfolio review, audition, or some element of prequalification prior to admission to the program. Explanations of these requirements are published in the Undergraduate Catalog by program. Applicants to a restricted access program will receive a decision for general admission to UWF from the Office of Undergraduate Admission and will receive a separate decision for admission to the restricted program from the department.
Applications and documents submitted by those applicants who are either denied or who do not enroll are retained as inactive files for one year only and are then destroyed.
UWF will provide reasonable substitution of admission requirements for an applicant as long as the absence of the requirement would not constitute a fundamental alteration in the nature of the program of study to which the applicant seeks admission, as long as the applicant establishes:
Within curricular, space, enrollment and fiscal limitations, admission as a junior to the upper division of the University will be granted to any applicant with an AA degree from a Florida public, postsecondary institution who has not enrolled in a degree seeking program at any other educational institution since his or her AA degree was conferred. The admission of such transfer students is governed by BOG Regulation 6.004 and any applicable articulation agreement.
Transfer applicants who do not meet the minimum admissions criteria may be considered for admission to the University of West Florida. Such applicants will be evaluated for admission on an individual basis using a comprehensive review of factors, such as, but not limited to, a combination of test scores and GPA that indicate potential for success, family educational background, socioeconomic status, geographic location, military service, special talents or abilities, or other special circumstances which contribute to a diverse student body.
Undergraduate transfer applicants denied admission may appeal this decision in writing to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. This request must contain reasons why reconsideration is warranted and should highlight extenuating circumstances and/or appropriate alternative evidence of academic achievement, ability, motivation and responsibility that indicates potential for success at UWF. Student-initiated appeals are heard by the Admission Decision Committee.
