Florida's 2+2 Advising Program Summary Content

2+2 Program

Florida’s 2+2 Program allows students to transition seamlessly from a state college to a state university. Nearly two-thirds of Florida's high school graduates attend a state college and more than 50% of upper-classmen in the state's universities started their postsecondary education in a state college.

Students who earn an Associate of Arts from a state college fulfill the general education requirements for a baccalaureate degree and are guaranteed admission to one of the 12 state universities, although not necessarily the university of their choice. Additionally, state colleges and universities must accept credit for courses with a statewide course number.
