Transfer Guidelines

Transfer credits will be evaluated by the Student Services Center | Undergraduate Registrar. At the time of application, submission of official course descriptions is necessary. The maximum number of transferable units into APU is 70 units from a junior college and 90 units from a university. The evaluation will be done on a course-by-course basis. Students will be required to take a minimum of 30 semester units at APU, including 15 upper-division units in their field of study. Courses graded lower than a C (on a U.S. scale) will not be transferable to APU.

APU does not require a specific set of college courses or a minimum amount of units completed prior to applying; however, it is in the best interest of the transfer applicant to follow the General Education Guidelines of suggested courses while enrolled at another institution.
