Transfer Course Substitutions
College of Business Courses
Courses that did not automatically transfer as equivalent to an FAU business course can be reviewed to see if a substitution can be made.
- Download Form 2: The Course Equivalent/Substitution Petition and review all instructions.
- A separate form is needed for each course that is petitioned.
- Submit to Student Academic Services in the College of Business.
Intellectual Foundation Program (IFP) Courses
All students who transfer to FAU with an Associate in Arts degree from a Florida public institution are deemed to have satisfied the IFP.
Other students may wish to petition IFP courses if they feel they have taken something equivalent. Visit hwww.fau.edu/uas/forms/ and scroll down to "IFP/DARS Petition Form." Log in with your FAU credentials to submit your form.
Questions about IFP courses should be directed to University Advising Services (UAS) at email@example.com.
Course descriptions are usually required for any course substitution petition. Your previous institution's catalog should have course description information, or you can visit www.collegesource.org.
