General Education (36)

1. Students must complete at least one course in each category to satisfy state of Florida regulation.
2. Students must take 12 hours of Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences.

4. Transfer students who have fulfilled the general education requirements at another institution are understood to have fulfilled the requirements at Florida Poly.

Program Foundations / Advanced Math & Science (16)

1. This area may consist of additional general education courses or other foundational courses in a related field.
2. General education courses must be used first to fulfill General Education requirements before being applied here.
3. Credits here, and in the above Math and Science GE Sections meet the 30 hour Basic Math/Science requirement for ABET.
4. Should count the following in this category: COP 2271C - Introduction to Computation and Programming (required for all programs) Credits: 3. Doing so ensures the 30 hour ABET requirement for “Basic Math/Science.”

Program Core (24)

24 credits represents a minimum, depending on how many credits are included in Program Foundations / Advanced Math & Science.

Interdisciplinary Sequence Electives (12)

Twelve credit interdisciplinary course sequence, generally at the 3000 - 4000 level, subject to department approval. 

General Electives (6)

Six credit hours of general course electives.
