A transfer student is a student who has previously attended another degree-granting post-secondary institution and has successfully completed at least one credit-bearing course. Applicants who have previously attended any regionally accredited post-secondary institution may be able to transfer courses comparable in content and length to ASA. Students are required to complete maximum of 50% of the courses in the program. Transfer credit will be evaluated once an official copy of the previous college transcript is received. A transcript is considered to be official when stamped with the official college seal, signed by the appropriate college official and received directly by ASA’s Registrar’s Office in a sealed envelope. Catalog and course descriptions may be requested as well.Important Information for Transfer Students Students considering transferring to ASA College should consider, along with the general application guidelines, these following points:
- Applicants must submit official undergraduate transcripts from previous college(s) to the Admissions Office for a transfer credit evaluation. It is the responsibility of an applicant to provide all the necessary documentation in a timely manner. Transfer credit will be considered for individual courses for which a grade of C or better has been achieved.
- Transfer students who have completed an English Composition and College Math course at an accredited institution with a grade of C or higher may be exempt from the placement test requirement. Please discuss this with your ASA Admissions associate.
- Applicants who have completed course work at other accredited U.S. post-secondary institutions may apply for transfer credits and/or seek advanced placement. They should submit transfer credit requests, including official transcripts from previously attended colleges and accompanying documentation, before enrolling.
- Students may be allowed transfer credits from colleges and universities in other countries for similar, verifiable, credit-bearing coursework. ASA will award academic credit evaluated on an individual basis for nationally recognized advanced placement examinations such as CLEP, DANTE, and/or Excelsior College (Regents) exams. Students may also be awarded credits for verifiable certifications obtained from nationally recognized organizations such as Microsoft, CICSO, and Sun Systems, etc.
