While the university will generally accept transfer credit for courses with a grade of "D" or better, only courses with a "C" or better in philosophy may be applied to the 34 hours required for the major or 15 hours for the minor in philosophy. The Department of Philosophy allows a maximum of 15 transfer hours to fulfill requirements for a major and 6 to fulfill requirements for a minor. No more than nine lower-division courses may be used to fulfill major requirements, and no more than three lower-division transfer hours may be used for the minor.
Advisors may ask for copies of syllabi, catalog descriptions or written work for courses taken at other institutions to assist them in assessing whether transfer credit should be granted. The Commonly numbered PHH, PHI, PHM, and PHP courses (in the State University System of Florida and Florida College System) will transfer automatically, subject to the above limitations. If a course taken at another institution is counted, the student's advisor will inform the Panther Degree Audit Office so that the student's audit may be corrected.
