Last Updated: Sep 1, 2011 12:00:00 AM

In order to receive Florida Academic Scholars (FAS) and Florida Medallion Scholars (FMS) awards, Florida Statutes require that a student pass four college preparatory math credits at the Algebra I level and above:

  • Students entering grade 9 in 2010-11: Algebra I, and one Geometry course or a series of courses equivalent to Geometry
  • Students entering grade 9 in 2011-12: Geometry
  • Students entering grade 9 in 2012-13: in addition to above, Algebra II or a series of courses equivalent to Algebra II

Please note that for 2011 and 2012 high school graduates only, the sequence of Algebra IA and IB and the sequence of Applied Math I and II may count as two credits, State University System (SUS) admissions and FAS/FMS eligibility. For 2013 and later graduates, these courses will revert to the traditional one high school credit per sequence for SUS Admissions and FAS/ FMS eligibility.

These courses DO NOT COUNT for any of the four required math credits toward Academic or Medallion awards:

  • Liberal Arts Math
  • Consumer Math
  • Business Math
  • Math for College Success
  • Applied Math III
  • Informal Geometry
  • Explorations in Math I & II
  • Pre-Algebra

However, these courses are considered as meeting a math requirement for high school graduation and therefore do meet the requirements for the Florida Gold Seal Vocational Scholars (GSV) award.
