Advising Tracks

Through the use of advising tracks, Polk State College offers preparation for many specific majors in the State University System (SUS) of Florida. Advising tracks serve as a course requirement guide for a student who plans to earn a Liberal Arts degree and then transfer to one of the state universities in Florida to complete a specific bachelor’s degree offered at a state university. Each advising track includes the courses to satisfy General Education requirements and the statewide common course prerequisites required for specific bachelor degree programs. Because advising tracks are tools for advising and not requirements for specific associate degrees, students cannot request substitutions for courses in an advising track. Using an advising track, students 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.
