Waived GE Courses = Quicker Degree Completion

UF waives most General Education requirements for students with an earned Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from an institution within the University System of Ohio allowing you to complete your degree quicker.

Transferring Credits

However, bachelor’s degree students must complete at least 30 semester hours of UF coursework toward the total 124-semester hour degree requirement, and associate’s degree students must complete at least 15 semester hours of UF coursework toward the total 62-semester hour degree requirement in order to graduate from UF.

Transfer Student Stories

Wendy grew up in Findlay, Ohio. As a senior in high school, she thought she wanted a large college experience away from home, but after two years attending a big university away from home she was tired of being “just a body in a seat.”


“My most memorable moment at The University of Findlay is passing organic chemistry – truly! I had taken it at the university I was at originally in a classroom with 350 students with a graduate student who told us he would teach us chemistry if we taught him English. Moving home and retaking organic chemistry here and getting to know Jeff Jenson, who really turned everything around for me and helped me understand, gave me a completely different college experience from there on.”

--Wendy Jolliff '95, Bachelor of Science in Biology, transferred from a public 4-year institution in Ohio to UF
