Universities in Florida

There are dozens of universities, colleges, and technical schools throughout the state of Florida. All have their own application process but they generally follow a similar guideline.

For universities and colleges secondary(high school) grades and proof of graduation or equivalency (G.E.D.) is often required as part of the application process. In addition A.C.T. or S.A.T. scores may need to be provided. Registration for these exams can be found here: ACT   SAT

Grading in the United States can be very different compared to other countries. Letter grades range from A to F sometimes including + or – depending on the numerical grade as well. A is the highest mark,B is still very good, C is a passing grade, D needs improvement, and F is failing. Here the Grade Point Average or GPA scale goes from 0.0 to 4.0. A 0.0 is a failing GPA, 1.0 is equivalent to a D average, 2.0 is a C average, 3.0 is a B average, and 4.0 is a perfect GPA with all A’s.

Each university will have its own policy for passing courses. Often a D grade for a course will not require a student to retake but it will negatively impact the overall GPA which could in turn affect graduation.
