The General Education Program at Florida Polytechnic University takes students beyond our rigorous technical and applied education and is essential to the academic development of our extraordinary students. General Education courses contain high-level academic and thinking skills.
In accordance with Section 1007.25 of the Florida Statutes and the recommendations of the General Education Steering and Faculty Committees, Florida Polytechnic University students complete 36 credit hours of General Education Program coursework within the subject areas of communication, humanities, mathematics, social sciences, and natural sciences. Each student must complete at least one approved course in each subject area.
Approved courses for each area are listed below. Where applicable, courses taken to meet state common prerequisites for a program also may be used to fulfill General Education requirements. All first-time-in-college students are expected to take ENC 1101 (Composition I) during their first semester at Florida Polytechnic.
In compliance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.024, a transfer student who has successfully completed the General Education requirements for any public university or community college in Florida prior to enrolling as a degree-seeking student at Florida Polytechnic University, and has this completion noted on the official transcript, shall be considered to have satisfied the General Education requirements at Florida Polytechnic. All other transfer students are expected to complete the Florida Polytechnic General Education Program. Transfer students’ transcripts will be evaluated to determine course equivalencies and fulfillment of Florida Polytechnic’s General Education requirements.
All courses listed are approved for meeting General Education requirements. Courses marked with (W) can be used to satisfy a portion of the Florida college-level writing requirement, and all mathematics courses can be used to satisfy a portion of the computation requirement (State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.030). A grade of C or higher is required for all coursework meeting the state writing and computation requirements.
