Transfer Students

Transferring Credits

Most courses taken at a regionally accredited college or university are transferable, however many issues impact how courses apply to a given degree program. ASU does not evaluate transfer credits in advance of an offer of admission.

You may transfer up to 64 credits from a regionally accredited two-year college. While there is no limit to the number of courses you may transfer from a regionally accredited, four-year institution, university policies determine the number and type of ASU credits you need to earn an ASU degree. Find out how credits transfer to ASU.

Every candidate for a baccalaureate degree must earn a minimum of 30 semester hours in resident credit courses at the ASU campus from which the student will graduate.

If you are transferring courses from any out-of-state or in-state private community college or university, the courses must be evaluated using the online Transfer Credit Guide.

*NOTE: A syllabus is not required to evaluate lower division life science courses. A syllabus is required to evaluate upper division life sciences courses.

Degree Audit Report System (DARS)

After you are admitted, find out which requirements you have completed by printing a DARS report from My ASU: (Select Request Your Degree Audit)

Once transfer courses are evaluated, they are properly placed in your DARS report. You can follow your progress and identify which courses you still need to complete for your curriculum.
