Transfer Opportunities for SFSC Students

For many students, South Florida State College (SFSC) is just the start of their college journey. SFSC has transfer agreements with several institutions and is working on creating more. These agreements allow for a seamless transition from SFSC to a university. If you review this list and decide on your transfer institution, visit the Transfer Student webpage for your next steps. 



Florida Gulf Coast University

Students who are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, or Supply Chain Management or a Bachelor of Arts in English can earn an associate degree at SFSC in two years and transfer to Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) to graduate on time with their bachelor’s degree in two years. SFSC and FGCU have a 2+2 transfer agreement that meets the needs of students and keeps them from spending excessive time or money. FGCU is located conveniently one hour from SFSC’s DeSoto Campus.
