Frequently Asked Questions
How do I transfer credit to the University of Arizona from another institution or college?
To transfer coursework from another institution to the University of Arizona, you must send an official transcript using the procedure outlined here.
*If you are transferring coursework from an out-of-state institution to satisfy Anatomy and Physiology, Biology, Chemistry or Second Language credits, you must have the coursework evaluated using this form: https://aztransmac2.asu.edu/cgi-bin/WebObjects/acres.woa/wa/form?id=498. Please contact the Math and English department directly for course evaluations.
How do I know if the University of Arizona has received/processed my transcripts?
Students are able to determine if the University of Arizona has processed their transcripts by logging in to their UAccess accounts. Once on their main student page, the student can use the drop-down menu (next to their class schedule) and select "Transfer Credit: Report". On this page, students can see the transfer credit that the University of Arizona has accepted and processed and what the course transferred in as. Please note that it can take up to 6 weeks for transcripts to be fully processed and placed in the UAccess system, and that your advisor is unable to see/count transfer credits until the Office of the Registrar has fully processed them.
*In the "Equivalent Course" column, you are able to see what the course was accepted as at the University of Arizona. If a course is not directly equivalent to any currently offered university course, you may see the equivalence listed as " ____ _TR". This designation informs you that the credits were accepted as 100, 200, 300, or 400 level elective credits for the department stated. Contact your advisor if you feel that an error has been made or you would like information on how to have these elective credits evaluated for degree applicability.
