Florida Gulf Coast University considers a student to be a Second Bachelor’s Degree applicant if they:
- Have a Bachelor’s Degree from a regionally accredited college or university (including FGCU).
- If the Bachelor’s Degree was awarded from an out of country institution, all foreign transcripts must be evaluated for equivalency purposes. University-level coursework undertaken abroad may be transferable if earned at a recognized institution depending on academic equivalency. Applicants should submit an original evaluation of courses taken and an English translation of course syllabi for which credit is desired. The evaluating agency will review your transcripts and determine your level of academic study comparable to the U.S. education system. However, academic departments have the option of denying credit for any coursework not applicable to that department. Failure to send foreign transcripts to an outside evaluation agency may cause delay in application processing.
