Students seeking a challenging academic foundation will find a variety of programs to meet their career objectives at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. The University offers 54 bachelor's degrees, 29 master's degrees, three professional degrees, and 12 doctoral programs in a wide range of academic areas.

Office of Transfer Student Services is here to assist you on your educational journey as you transition from your current educational institution to Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University. Our staff provides assistance and oversight to include: recruitment, transfer admissions advising, transfer orientation, curriculum maps, direction for campus resources, priority registration and scholarships for eligible students.

The FAMU IGNITE Transfer Program lights your path to successfully earning a bachelor's degree from the beginning to the end. The program will connect you to caring advisors, compassionate professors, and successful alumni. You will have access to nationally renowned internships and professional development opportunities as well as study abroad programs and global training experiences.

The Ignite Transfer program goes beyond the State-wide articulation agreement and provides increased access to students who graduate with an Associate of Arts (AA) degree from a Florida College System (FCS) Institution. This collaboration between FAMU and the FCS provides greater clarity regarding pathways to completing a bachelor's degree by guaranteeing admission and clearly outlining, via curriculum maps, the required courses for graduation or degree completion.
