Broward College recently unveiled an agreement that allows students who complete an Associate of Arts degree to further their studies outside Florida. The College is partnering with Arizona State University (ASU) to provide graduates a seamless transition into a bachelor’s programs at the prestigious school.

ASU has ranked number one for the last four years as the country’s most innovative university by the U.S. News & World Report.  

Students must meet the established guidelines to qualify for the transfer. To be eligible, you must meet one of the following options:

  • Earned an Associate of Arts degree with a minimum cumulative transfer GPA of 2.50, or
  • Completed a Florida General Education Course with a minimum cumulative transfer GPA of 2.50, or
  • Completed at least 24 transferable credits with a minimum cumulative transfer GPA of 3.00.

What is a Transfer Agreement?

ASU transferTransfer agreements help students who earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.), and in some cases, an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree qualify for acceptance to a bachelor’s program at a university. These are exclusive partnerships, and it doesn’t mean that the student is accepted to every program offered at the university.

In Florida, most public colleges are part of a statewide articulation agreement between the State Board of Education and the Board of Governors. The articulation guarantees the transition to students who complete an A.A at a member institution of the Florida College System to one of the 12 state universities, but this an does not apply to specific programs of study.

Broward College has taken their articulation agreements a step further, partnering with several universities even outside Florida.
