Transfer Advising

Thinking about a bachelor’s degree? We can help!

Your associate’s degree will open many doors, including pathways to a bachelor’s degree (and beyond). If you are thinking about continuing your education after your associate’s degree, it is important to start planning early. Most bachelor’s degree programs will require you to take specific classes before you can enter your chosen major. Whether you plan to continue your studies at one of FSW’s industry-leading bachelor’s degree programs, or transfer to another institution—the Office of Academic Advising is here to guide you through the process. Schedule an appointment with your advisor today in the FSW portal.

Destination FGCU, the FSW/FGCU Transfer Program, provides students with the tools and guidance they need to easily and successfully move from FSW upon completion of their Associate in Arts degree (AA) to FGCU.

Statewide agreement with Florida's public universities to ensure seamless transition from FSW to a bachelor's degree program.

As a member of the Florida College System, Florida SouthWestern State College offers its students the benefits of articulation agreements established by the Florida Department of Education. Students graduating from FSW with an Associate in Arts (AA) degree are guaranteed by the state of Florida to "have the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree at a state university or Florida college offering four-year degrees." This opportunity does not guarantee admission to limited access programs.
