A.A. Degree Forgiveness Policy

This policy is for students who previously attended UWF, whether as degree-seeking or non-degree-seeking who subsequently earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree at another Florida public institution.  If the student chooses to utilize this policy:

  • All credit earned at UWF prior to earning the A.A. degree at another Florida public institution will be excluded from the number of hours earned towards a baccalaureate degree, and from all calculations of the UWF GPA. The official academic record will reflect at least 60 semester hours of credit awarded and completion of the General Education and Gordon Rule requirements in accordance with the State Articulation Agreement. The UWF GPA will include only those courses completed from this point forward and the student will be in good academic standing.

To be eligible for this policy, the student must transfer directly from the A.A. degree granting institution to UWF. All adjusted courses will remain on the transcript as attempted credit hours, but they will not be calculated into the UWF GPA. Therefore, all prior credit taken at UWF will no longer be available to use towards your degree program.  

A.A. Forgiveness does not exclude UWF attempted credit hours from Excess Hour Surcharge. Refer to Excess Hour Surcharge.
