Transfer Admissions

The UF colleges that participate in the Innovation Academy admit highly qualified transfer students who have completed an Associate in Arts degree at a Florida public community or state college.

Students seeking admission from other universities or out-of-state schools may be considered for admission on a space-available basis. Transfer students are only admitted to Innovation Academy for the Spring semester. Students who transfer to IA will attend UF on Innovation Academy’s Spring/Summer schedule until the completion of their degree program. This allows IA students the Fall semester to seek out opportunities; learn more on the IA in the Fall page.
