Transfer Credit

Transfer of Credit  
Students should seek Academic Advising approval for transfer credit prior to taking any course at another institution to ensure the course(s) is comparable and will acceptable for transfer. AUN reserves the right to deny credit for any courses taken at other institutions for any reason.

Students who have successfully completed University level coursework at other accredited institutions may submit official transcripts to the Office of the Registrar (with their application to Admissions if prior to matriculation). The official transcript must be sent directly from the other institution to AUN. The transcript will be evaluated and authenticated.  The student will be notified of acceptable transfer credits and course equivalents via AUN e-mail. Only those courses that are comparable to AUN courses in content and rigor may be approved for transfer. Courses taken more than 10 years prior to acceptance will require additional review.  
 
Grades earned in courses accepted for transfer credit, including study abroad courses, will not be included in the CGPA. However, the credits earned will be counted towards the total number required for graduation and only courses where students earn a final grade of 'C-' or higher will be considered for transfer to AUN.  There is one exception to this rule: when the 1st grade in a two-term sequence of courses is a D and the 2nd course grade is a C- or better.  (For example, Math a student received a “D” in Writing 101 and a “C” in Writing 102).A maximum of 60 credit hours from all institutions of higher learning may be accepted and used to satisfy major and general education requirements, or serve as free electives.  For transferred courses the final grade of 'TR' will appear on the transcript.
 
For students transferring credits from a university on a quarter system, may receive 2/3 of an AUN credit hour for each quarter hour earned. For example, four quarter hours from a transfer institution equals 2.67 credit hours at AUN. AUN may allow a maximum of 12 credits to transfer that are recorded on a pass/fail basis.
 
AUN students who study abroad in an AUN approved abroad program are eligible to transfer credit from their abroad coursework. Please see 'Permit to Study' section for more information.
