Transfer Majors


Through the use of transfer majors, Polk State College offers preparation for many specific majors in the State University System (SUS) of Florida and the Florida College System (FCS). This is known as the state's 2+2 articulation. The selection of a transfer major and a transfer institution serves as a course requirement guide for a student who plans to earn a Liberal Arts degree and then transfer to one of the Florida state universities or any Florida College System institution offering bachelor degrees, including Polk State, to complete a specific bachelor's degree.

Each transfer major displays the required courses to satisfy General Education requirements and the statewide common course prerequisites required for specific bachelor degree programs from the state's common prerequisite manual. Using the transfer major degree audit found in PASSPORT, a student can plan for the AA in Liberal Arts degree program more effectively and minimize the potential for excess credit hours. Students are advised that excess hours toward a bachelor's degree can cost them additional tuition at the university level.

Students may view the many state transfer majors through FloridaShines.org. Students can search transfer major degree programs and learn more about the state's 2+2 pathway to a bachelor degree.
