Description The Florida Board of Governors (BOG) is responsible for managing the major universities in Florida's State University System (SUS). In 2018, the BOG put forth a civic literacy graduation requirement. This requires baccalaureate degree-seeking students must demonstrate this competency prior to graduation either through course completion on campus (American Government or American History Since 1877), completing the U.S. Citizenship Immigration Services Naturalization Test with supplemental questions, completing either Advanced Placement courses Government and Politics or United States History, or passing a CLEP American Government exam. Each of these requirements puts forth specific criteria and passing scores.
