State of Florida Common Course Prerequisites

The State of Florida has identified common course prerequisites for this University degree program. These prerequisites are lower-level courses that are required for preparation for the University major prior to a student receiving a baccalaureate degree from The Florida State University. They may be taken either at a community college or in a university lower-division program. It is preferred that these common course prerequisites be completed in the freshman and sophomore years.

The following lists the common course prerequisites or approved substitutions necessary for this degree program:

  1. BSC 1010/1010L*;
  2. BSC 1011/1011L*;
  3. CHM 1045/1045L;
  4. CHM 1046/1046L;
  5. CHM 2210/2210L*;
