II. Historical note
The Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) is a diverse association of private educational institutions. ICUF institutions are non-profits, Florida-based and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS). They serve more than 120,000 students at 180 sites around Florida. They offer bachelor degree opportunities on 18 community college campuses. Their enrollments vary from less than 100 to nearly 25,000 students.
The State Board of Community Colleges has signed an articulation agreement with the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF). The Agreement establishes the provisions for the transfer of Associate in Arts degree students into private colleges and universities. The Agreement guarantees that community college Associate in Arts degree students will enter as juniors, receive 60 credit hours toward their bachelor's degree, and receive recognition for the general education core taken at the community college. Twenty-six Independent Colleges and Universities in Florida have recognized this agreement.
