Transfer Information:

Tallahassee Community College is the college of choice for students whose academic plans include a bachelor’s degree or higher. In addition to our Golden Guarantee Transfer Programs, TCC offers our graduates many transfer opportunities across the state.

The Facts:

Florida has a “2+2” articulation system. Students who earn an Associate in Arts degree from TCC or one of Florida’s other community colleges are guaranteed admission to one of the 12 state universities.*
  • Students who hold an A.A. degree from a Florida community college will be awarded at least 60 credit hours toward the bachelor’s degree, thus protecting the credits they earned during their freshman and sophomore years at the community college.
  • Community college students who transfer to a state university before earning an A.A. degree do not have all the guarantees provided by the articulation agreements and may be denied admission or lose credit when transferring. In most cases, students who transfer without an A.A. degree will have to meet freshman admission standards.
*Florida’s articulation agreement does not guarantee community college Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree holders admission to a particular university or to limited-access programs.

The TCC Transfer Difference:

TCC is dedicated to helping you stay on track to graduate with an A.A. degree and transfer to a four-year college or university. Our advisors will assist you with all aspects of the academic planning process, and our high quality of education prepares students for transfer to any institution. Please refer to the TCC Student Occupational and Academic Resource (TCC SOAR) page for information on:

TCC is an exclusive partner with several area colleges and universities to provide special transfer programs and on-campus advising to ensure a smooth transition. Talk with an advisor about your academic goals to determine which option is right for you.

Limited Access Programs

Some programs at the university level are limited access, which means there may be additional, more restrictive admission requirements beyond the institution’s general admission requirements. 

Florida’s articulation system does not guarantee Florida College System Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree holders admission to limited-access programs. The university determines the courses and prerequisites that must be taken in order to receive a baccalaureate for a chosen program. Although some or all credit earned towards an A.A. degree will transfer to a state university, not all credit may satisfy the program prerequisites or the course requirements for a baccalaureate degree.


​Excess Hours Advisory:

Section 1009.286, F.S., establishes an “excess hour” surcharge for a student seeking a baccalaureate degree at a state university. It is critical that students, including those entering Florida colleges, be aware of the potential for additional course fees.
“Excess hours” are defined as hours that go beyond 110% of the hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, if the length of the program is 120 credit hours, the student may be subject to an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 132 credit hours (120 x 110%).
All students whose educational plan may include earning a bachelor’s degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully complete those courses that are required for their intended major on their first attempt. Florida college students intending to transfer to a state university should identify a major or “transfer program” early and be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and/or repeats, as well as enrollment in courses nonessential to the intended major, may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge.
