Transfer application requirements
Transfer your credits to complete your degree
You’re considered a transfer applicant if you have attended one or more colleges or universities and have completed 12 or more transferable college or university credits post-high school. To transfer to ASU, you must meet one of the following requirements: graduated from high school, earned a GED, are in progress toward an associate degree or have completed your associate degree.
Speak to an enrollment counselor
