Transfer Students

For students transferring from accredited public institutions within the state of Alabama, the amount of credit for freshman and sophomore course work is governed by the Articulation and General Studies agreement. Credit for core curriculum English writing courses is allowed only on grades of C or better, as approved by the Discipline Committee of the Articulation and General Studies Agreement. Courses with grades of D are only acceptable for transfer in those degree programs in which grades of D are acceptable for equivalent freshman and sophomore courses taken at Auburn University. The maximum credit allowed for work completed in a junior college will be equivalent to one-half of the student's curriculum at Auburn but not to exceed 64 semester hours or 96 quarter hours.

For students transferring from other accredited institutions, the amount of transfer credit and advanced standing allowed will be determined by the appropriate dean and the provost or designee. Courses with grades of D are only acceptable for transfer in those degree programs in which grades of D are acceptable for equivalent courses taken at Auburn University.

Students transferring from unaccredited institutions or programs may be granted provisional credit. When such credit is allowed, the final amount of credit will be determined upon completion by the student of one year of coursework at Auburn University. If a C average is not achieved, the amount of credit will be reduced in proportion to the number of hours in which the student fails to earn a C average or better.


Applicants must provide official transcripts (not duplicated or faxed copies) from each college attended, including any at which the applicant enrolled while in high school. The preferred transcript delivery method is via E-script. E-scripts are considered official and can be sent to

Note: A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) on all college work attempted and eligibility to re-enter the institution last attended are required to be considered for transfer admission. Transfer applicants who were not eligible for admission to Auburn when they graduated from high school must present a minimum of 30 semester hours of college credit. All transfer students who have attempted 30 semester hours of college work must have earned a cumulative 2.5 GPA in at least 20 semester hours of standard academic courses as required in Auburn University's core curriculum, in addition to the overall 2.5 cumulative average. These 20 semester hours must include at least one course in each of the following areas: English (college-level composition or literature), History, Mathematics-approved core mathematics for articulation and general studies (or its equivalent from other institutions), and Natural Science with a laboratory.
