Transfer Students

Applicants who have attended other institutions can apply for admission with advanced standing, provided they are academically eligible to return to the college or university last attended. Students transferring from other colleges should send official transcripts of all previous college work to:

Albany State University
Office of Admissions
Reese Building Room 126
504 College Drive
Albany, GA 31705

Your eligibility for admission will be based on previous academic performance. We require official transcripts from all schools previously attended (High School and College), as well as your ACT/SAT scores for transfer students who have completed less than 30 hours.

For non-USG institutional transfers, determination of course equivalency may require review of rules by our accrediting body. Failure to report previous college attendance is sufficient cause for cancellation of registration and credits earned at Albany State.

A maximum of 90 academic semester hours from an accredited senior college may be applied to the program in which applicants desire enrollment, provided that grades earned are "C" or better. Applicants who have completed the core requirements in a transfer program in another unit of the University System of Georgia will receive full transfer credit for all core courses. A maximum of 30 semester hours in any combination of independent study, extension and/or credit by examination earned at other accredited Institutions can be accepted toward graduation.

Albany State University will accept as transferred credit "D" grades earned in core curriculum courses; no freshman English courses with grades less than "C" will be accepted as transfer credit. All transfer applicants accepted for admission may review their articulated courses on Banner. This evaluation must be presented upon registration to the students' advisors. Unofficial transcripts cannot be evaluated. Applicants who have not completed at least 30 semester hours of accepted transfer credits should complete all the requirements for freshman admissions. (Please allow up to 20 business days to articulate credits from the date of receipt).

Students who have not completed Developmental Studies requirements at another System institution shall be admitted only in accordance with the Developmental Studies guidelines. Applicants transferring from an institution or program that did not require the College Preparatory Curriculum may be subject to College Preparatory Curriculum requirements.
