Academic Resources

Undergraduate Academic Success Center

The Undergraduate Academic Success Center is comprised of four areas committed to partnering with students, faculty, and staff to support the academic success of Azusa Pacific students:

One Stop

Azusa Pacific’s One Stop office provides enrollment and financial services information and resources. This includes things such as registration, graduation materials, transcripts, academic forms, financial aid, and tuition/fees.

Important One Stop Resources for Transfers:

  • Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT): A guaranteed pathway for transferring to APU. With the ADT option, our goal is to help make the process smoother for you so you can finish your degree while benefiting from all that an APU education offers.
  • Transferology: Transferology is a great online tool where a student can set up an account in order to see how classes transfer into APU from outside institutions. This includes 2-year, 4-year, local, and out-of-state institutions.
  • Academic Policies: This resources provides some important information about being a student at APU from grading policies to course number information.
  • Graduation Tips: Taking into account that a transfer student's time at APU can be condensed, it is important to be aware of the graduation process so students can ensure degree completion in time for commencement.
