Students interested in transferring to Florida Poly from a State College should connect with Florida Poly Admissions to understand transfer pathways. Specific agreements are noted below.

Credits completed at PSC will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for applicability to the current Business Analytics program requirements at Florida Poly. 

Specific standards for admissions must be met to ensure full access to the agreement; however, if other admissions standards are met, the following general equivalencies will pertain.
