Freshman Transfer students are those who have less than 30 credit hours, but have previously attended another institution.

Once you have been accepted and your transcripts have been articulated you can view your unofficial transcript on Banner Web.

Orientation is required for our Freshman Transfer students. If you are transferring in less than 30 credit hours you will need to attend. 

Once you have been accepted and your transcripts have been articulated you can contact our Advising center at 229-500-2002 to register for classes. Please make sure your transcript(s) has been articulated prior to registering to prevent retaking a class. 

 

Schedule an Advising appointment here. Make sure to use your ASU credentials to log in. 

If you have a hold you will most likely need to submit an updated transcript from your last previously attended institution. 

You can contact our office at 229-500-4358 for further clarification if needed. 

If you have a hold on your Financial Aid account that claims you are missing your transfer articulation date do not worry. Once we have articulated your transcript(s) this hold will  be removed. Please allow up to 5 business days for this hold to clear. 

 There are many factors to determine acceptable transfer credit. 

  • Albany State University only accepts credit from a regionally accredited institution. 
  • If you attended a Technical School in Georgia (TCSG) please see our tab on TCSG. 
  • We accept core classes (Our Area A - F) with a grade of "D" or better. English 1101 & 1102 must have a "C" or better.
  • All other courses must have a "C" or better. 
  • If you are major in an Associates program we can transfer in a maximum of 42 credit hours. 
  • If you are majoring in a Bachelor program we can transfer in up to 90 credit hours. 
  • ASU does not award transfer credit for learning support courses, career associate programs, internships, and orientation courses. 
  • Transfer courses that do not have an exact equivalency will be given elective credit. 

Yes, since we have a maximum number of credits allowed to transfer in we are more than fine with reevaluating a transcript if a major has changed. You can contact us via email and ask for a reevaluation.

Yes - If you took college courses at an International college you will need to submit your transcript to World Education Services to have it translated. Once it has been translated you can submit their copy to our institution.

So you've attended one of the 22 Technical Colleges in Georgia. There are a few more rules for you than most institutions.

  • We can only transfer in courses that were taken in the Spring of 2012 or after. The exception for this would be College Algebra (MAT 191) and English Composition I & II (ENG  191 & 192). These three classes must have been taken in 2002 or later. 
  • We do not accept any courses named "Fundamentals", "Basics", or "Foundations" 
  • You can see which courses transfer in here. We can accept these courses and only these courses from a TCSG school. We have a few Articulation Agreements with Albany Technical College (ATC) and Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC) Through our Articulation Agreements we are able to transfer a few more classes in.

What are the Articulation Agreements between the schools and how do they work? 

We must have ALL official transcripts prior to being accepted into our institution. We cannot waive this requirement for any reason. 

If we are asking for a transcript from a school you may have applied to, but never attended please send us a Non-Attendance Letter. 

The price to attend ASU varies. Please see our Tuition & Fees page for more information.

Albany State University has a few Articulation Agreements  in place for students who have graduated with their A.A.S from Albany Technical College (ATC) or Southern Regional Technical College (SRTC). Through our Articulation Agreements we are able to transfer a few more classes than from Technical Colleges we do not have a agreement with.
