The following list represents the recommendations of the Articulation Coordinating Committee. Institutions must use the course number listed, unless it would be advantageous for the student to award a specific course number with equal credit that satisfies program prerequisites. Information about the program, including course syllabi, can be found on-line at www.cie.org.uk/countries/usa.

Notes:

  1. These scores will only be taken from US high schools. If courses taken outside of the United States, they must be evaluated through an international credential evaluation agency.
  2. Credit hours in parentheses. FGCU will award university credit in accordance with state guidelines for exam scores in subject areas not on this list. Such exam scores may also earn credit for specific FGCU courses. These will be evaluated on a case by case basis. AP, IB, CLEP & AICE (added) information regarding courses/areas for which FGCU credit may be assigned is subject to change. Students should consult their academic advisors for up-to-date information.
