Students from International Universities or Domestic Students With International Coursework

  • Transfer courses are evaluated individually/course-by-course to determine how they satisfy FIUs University Core Curriculum (UCC).
  • Awarded a maximum of 60 lower-division credits toward the bachelor’s degree

As an international transfer student or a domestic student with international coursework, it is important that we review the content of your transfer courses as early as possible so that you are ready to enroll in the courses you need as soon as you transfer. Review STEP 3 below to learn how you can submit course descriptions/syllabi prior to transferring.
