A.S. Pathway: Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education at FSCJ

This transfer GPS prepares students who complete the Associate in Science degree in Early Childhood Education (AS/CCAS) at EFSC to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education at Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). In order to transfer, an A.S. student would need additional work from the A.A. curriculum that completes the general education component missing for an A.S. degree. The student would be eligible to receive both EFSC’s A.S. and A.A. degrees. Completion of courses and requirements, as per the articulation agreement, prepares the student for preferred acceptance into the B.S. in Early Childhood Education at FSCJ.

Adjust your pace to graduation by taking more or fewer classes each term or attending year-round. This 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 and check with the advising or admissions office at the intended transfer institution.
