Transfer Students

Transfer students at ASU are first assigned a general advisor in the Academic Advising Center located in D.D. Dougherty Hall. The Advising Center is a department within University College. All transfer students must first meet with a general advisor to officially declare their major and begin a plan of study. In addition, transfer students must complete 12 semester hours at ASU with a 2.5 grade point average. Once this has been completed, the Academic Advising Center will forward a student's record to the College of Education where an academic advisor will be assigned.

All transfer students must meet with an advisor at the General Advising Center before official records are sent to the College of Education and before meeting with an Elementary Education advisor.

  • Attend the university and departmental orientations. These programs will answer many questions you have with regard to your academic plan. Plus it will be a great way to meet people from your department and around the university!
  • Check your transcript via AppalNet to make certain that a record of all courses taken at prior colleges have been sent to the ASU Admissions Office. Contact your prior college's registrar office if you believe courses are missing.
  • Some courses will transfer to ASU as "general electives." If you believe such a course may be equivalent to one offered at ASU, then you will need to contact the department that offers that course for further information. The department chair may need to see a description of the course in question, so that a determination can be made.
  • Meet with your general advisor at least once during your first semester at ASU to make sure you're on track and to address any questions you may have.
