Transfer credit equivalents vary among semester, unit and quarter universities.

Courses equated to UAS courses that are short 1.00 credit or less, will meet UAS course requirements without requiring a petition and you would simply make up that credit elsewhere in your degree program (such as in your electives).

If you are short more than 1.00 credit for a particular requirement, please contact your advisor.

Transfer credits are not included in your UAS grade point average (GPA) computation, except to determine eligibility for graduation with honors.

Courses below a 100 level are not transferable to UAS.

This does not necessarily mean that your courses will not transfer. It may be that the courses are not yet part of our database, which is always growing.
