Plan Your Course Selection

As you pursue your academic path at FLCC, you should plan your course selection carefully. Meeting with your faculty advisor will help ensure you are taking the necessary courses that will fulfill the College's graduation requirements and satisfy general education course requirements. In addition, your advisor will discuss any prerequisites you may need to take prior to pursuing your major at FLCC and at the four-year level.

Keep Your Grades High

When attending FLCC, you'll want to keep your grades as high as possible. Avoid dropping or withdrawing from classes and strive to keep your grades from falling below a C average. Remember to seek help from your instructors and academic support services whenever necessary. And, hold onto all course syllabi, as they may be needed to help justify transfer credit later on.

Transfer Tips

As you search for the right four-year college or university to attend after FLCC, don't limit your search to a select number of schools or specific type of college. Expand it and explore alternative four-year options for transfer opportunities. Plan on applying to multiple institutions. When applying, inquire about all deadlines and stay ahead of them. Always keep organized and stay connected with your prospective colleges.
