The College of Central Florida has joined the IGNITE program at Florida A&M University to provide a direct transfer pathway for its students.
The partnership guarantees FAMU admission to students who earn an Associate in Arts at Central Florida.
“This new partnership is a huge benefit to our students and community,” said Dr. Jim Henningsen, Central Florida president. “It gives students the opportunity to complete their first two years at CF, where they thrive in smaller classes with our award-winning faculty and programs and pay less in tuition. It is a giant step forward in helping increase the education attainment level of our community by increasing access to bachelor’s degree programs in Marion, Citrus and Levy counties.”
Students with an associates of arts degree who apply for limited access programs such as FAMU/FSU College of Engineering, College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Nursing, School of Journalism and Allied Health Sciences-Cardiopulmonary will need to meet the additional admissions and prerequisite requirements for those specific programs.
The partnership provides students a smoother transition with admission and enrollment. Since students receive advising from both Central Florida and FAMU, they might also find a shorter time to degree completion.
