Evaluation of Undergraduate Transfer Credit from Domestic Institutions
Students who have completed post-secondary work in the United States may be eligible to receive transfer credit toward their AUM baccalaureate degree if that institution was regionally accredited -as recognized by the U.S. Department of Education- when the coursework was completed.
Important Aspects of Transfer Credit
Sources of Transfer Credit
Transfer Credits from Alabama Public Colleges and Universities
The Statewide Transfer and Articulation Reporting System (STARS) was created through ACT 94-202 of the Alabama state legislature, for the purpose of simplifying transfer credits across Alabama’s public two-year and four-year colleges and universities. STARS provides transfer guides/agreements and guidance for students transferring from two-year to four-year institutions, or four-year to four-year institutions. The easiest way to see which of your courses will transfer in as Area I through IV credits, look online at the STARS Web database. To see the transfer articulation of program specific requirements (Area V) visit STARS Area V.
Matching Courses to AUM Credits
Appeal of a Transfer Credit Decision
Generally, if course articulation has been coordinated though the Admissions/Registrar’s office and evaluated by a designated faculty member, the student must supply additional information in order to have the coursework reviewed a second time. Additional documentation should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
Evaluation of Graduate Transfer Credit from Domestic Institutions
No more than six (6) semester hours or three courses of graduate work not to exceed six (6) semester hours can be transferred into a graduate program at AUM. To transfer such work, a student must have been admitted to a graduate degree program in the institution at which the work was taken. Such credit will not be accepted until the student has successfully completed nine (9) hours or work in the graduate program at AUM. Credit accepted after the required nine (9) hours of work at AUM must be acceptable to the student’s advisor and to the dean in the appropriate college. A student who has completed a master’s degree or a professional degree may request that 6 hours of credit be transferred to or within AUM. Questions should be directed to the student’s program advisor.
