Transferring Professional Undergraduate Courses
We know the transfer process can seem daunting, which is why our team in the Graduate and Professional Center is ready to help you navigate transferring courses to APU. If you are seeking to complete a bachelor’s degree at Azusa Pacific University while utilizing transfer credit, we recommend closely following the General Education guidelines of suggested courses while enrolled at another institution.
The Office of the Graduate and Professional Registrar handles all requests for transferring courses to a professional undergraduate program at APU. Whether you are a new professional undergraduate student transferring from another institution to APU or a student currently enrolled at APU wishing to take approved classes at another school, your appeal to transfer that course credit to APU will ultimately go through this office.
What is a Professional Undergraduate Program?
At APU, professional undergraduate programs are accelerated bachelor’s degree completion programs, typically for students who have transferable credit from another institution and want to finish their degree at Azusa Pacific. Please note, students interested in transferring into one of APU’s traditional, four-year undergraduate programs should visit the Undergraduate Enrollment Services Center for transfer guidelines for those programs.
Azusa Pacific provides transfer plans as a tool to aid professional undergraduate students in knowing which courses APU will accept to fulfill General Education requirements. Please keep in mind that these transfer plans are not formal agreements, and all transfer courses submitted for credit are subject to approval by the Graduate and Professional Registrar.
To find your transfer plan, you may search by the transferring college or university, or by your program of interest at APU:

Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT)
For students transferring to Azusa Pacific from partnering community colleges, the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) option offers a guaranteed pathway for admission into an APU major that is similar to the student’s ADT degree. Learn more about our ADT college partners and transfer plans.
Professional undergraduate transfers must submit transcripts from any and all colleges or universities attended in order to receive transfer credit. Prospective APU students (applicants) should submit their transcripts to the Office of Graduate and Professional Admissions. Please note that, while the admissions office will accept unofficial transcripts for admissions purposes, official transcripts must be sent to obtain transfer credit. Official transcripts must be sent to APU in a sealed, unopened envelope bearing the official logo or seal of the institution.

Use this course equivalency database as a guide to review any undergraduate coursework you completed outside Azusa Pacific University to determine if it is transferable to a professional undergraduate program at APU.
