Hello, and welcome back to Just Answer.

Which University are you attending now?

You already have your A.A. degree and are continuing on to get your B.S. degree from the same institution or a different school?

Thanks for all your additional information.

Hi again, and thanks very much for your patience.

I was required to attend a meeting right after my last post to you, hence the slight delay.

You are inquiring about 'elective' credits, but I believe you are referring to the already earned credits you have gotten at the CC toward your A.A. degree. When you enter a university like UWF as a 'transfer' student, meaning you are not entering as a college freshman, because you already have earned your A.A. degree and are looking to now earn your 4 year degree with a B.S., they have certain requirements regarding the credits you are coming into the school with. You will need to have a G.P.A. of at least 2.0 and have taken at least 12 credits at another institution of higher learning. I'm sure your A.A. degree required more than 12 credits, but was it less than 60 credits? If so, you might still need to show SAT or ACT scores, in addition to your transcript from your CC where you earned your A.A. degree. Please see the following for additional information:

Not all credits may be acceptable/transferable, so you will need to meet with an admissions advisor from UWF to discuss your credits earned at the CC and decide which courses/credits you now need to get your B.S.

Electives are usually built into the B.S. program, but because you are not beginning as a freshman, you may have already fulfilled the electives requirements with the courses you took for your A.A. If not, the admissions advisor will let you know what electives you need to take for your major and/or in general for your B.S. degree.
