SCF 2 + 2 Program




2 (years at community college to get AA degree) + 2 (years at a State University to get Bachelor’s Degree)

Together, Florida Gulf Coast University and State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota want to help make your academic goals a reality. We encourage students to take advantage of the Florida State 2+2 program, which allows students who are earning an Associate of Arts (A.A) degree or articulated Associate of Science (AS) degree to make an easier transition to complete a Bachelor’s Degree.

What is the 2+2 program?
Florida’s higher education system is designed to allow students to successfully pursue a bachelor’s degree by first attending a community college and then transferring to a 4-year institution. This approach to earning a 4-year degree is commonly referred to as the 2+2 system. The state of Florida guarantees that students who complete an AA degree at a community college have the opportunity to enroll in and earn a bachelor’s degree at a state university.

Early planning and being prepared are essential to making the 2+2 program work it’s best for you.
