Transferring to ASU Online takes just a few simple steps.
How do you know if you are a transfer applicant? It depends on the number of transferable credits you have earned from another college or university:
|Number of Credits||Applicant Type|
|More than 24 credits||Transfer|
|Fewer than 24 credits (2.0 GPA min.)||Freshman|
You are considered a transfer applicant and may be eligible for assured admission if you meet at least one of the following requirements:
- You’ve completed an Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) at an accredited Arizona community college.
- You’ve completed an associate degree or higher.
Arizona transfer applicants are assured admission to ASU if they meet one of the following requirements:
- Completion of an associate's degree with a 2.0 or higher GPA (4.0=A).
- AGEC (Arizona General Education Curriculum) with a 2.5 GPA or higher (4.0=A).
California transfer applicants are assured admission to ASU if they meet the following requirement:
- Studying at a partner California community college and signed up for the Guaranteed Program for Admission (We accept the IGETC/CSU GE.)
Nonresident transfer students are admitted to ASU if they meet one of the following requirements:
- Completion of an associate's degree with a 2.0 or higher A (4.0=A).
- AGEC with a 2.5 GPA or higher (4.0=A).
Individual Review for Admission (Non-assured Admission)
Transferring with 24 transferable credits or more
If a student has more than 24 transferable credit hours, Arizona and nonresidents with above a 2.0 cumulative GPA in transfer hours will be considered for admission. Through this individual review process, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions will review all available information about a student’s application, carefully considering all aspects of a student’s academic background and accomplishments. In some cases, additional information might be requested.

If you have completed an associate degree or higher, you will not need to send a high school transcript.
If you have not completed an associate degree or higher, please request your official high school transcript showing proof of graduation, in addition to transcripts from all institutions you have previously attended or are currently attending (post–high school coursework).
Upon graduation or completion of your final semester at your current institution, request that a complete transcript be sent directly to ASU to determine final admission status. Receipt of your final transcript impacts financial aid disbursement and eligibility to register for future classes.
