Prepare to pursue a Computer Science degree

If your A.A. degree is the first step in moving on to a bachelor's level Computer Science Program, you want to plan carefully now. The transfer GPS plans in this area prepare students to pursue a four-year degree in Computer Science/Information Technology at a Florida public university or Florida College System (FCS) institution that offers a biology B.S. degree. Students are encouraged to complete the recommended transfer GPS that will support their intended baccalaureate degree program. Our plans take into account whether you are a full- or part-time student and whether you will take developmental education (Dev Ed) courses to prepare for college level credit courses, so choose the plan that fits your situation.

A computer science degree can be part of the academic preparation for many rewarding careers, including, but not limited to, working as a computer and information systems manager, computer hardware engineer, computer network architect, programmer, systems analyst, cybersecurity expert, database administrator, information security analyst, IT Project manager, software developer or web developer.

The courses listed in the Computer Science plans are common prerequisites which are required for a computer/IT major at the university or state college level. For more information on common prerequisites, check the statewide advising manual at The courses listed in the transfer GPS were selected to meet specific course requirements as either general education requirements or electives within Eastern Florida State College's A.A. degree program.

Remember that each transfer GPS is a guideline and does not guarantee admission to a college or university. Requirements may vary by institution and can change each year. Students are encouraged to consult an EFSC advisor or check with the advising or admissions office at the intended transfer institution.
