All of FSU's online Undergraduate Degree Programs are advanced standing degree programs. Students are generally required to have completed 60 or more semester hours of transferable credit as determined by the Office of Admissions (usually an Associate's degree or the equivalent) and meet junior level transfer requirements. Students must also have completed any specific program prerequisites and liberal studies requirements prior to application. Visit the Florida Virtual Campus for online options for completing any necessary prerequisite coursework.

FSU offers a select number of electives online and additional electives are being added as more and more academic departments become interested in offering courses through distance learning.

Students transferring into the University with an Associate in Arts (AA) degree from a Florida public community college or university are eligible to be admitted directly into the college of their choice provided they meet minimum requirements for the major selected.
