UAH

Transfer Articulation Agreements

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) is a premier national and global research university, but it's also a school where you'll feel immediately at home. You'll find UAH is the perfect fit, big enough to offer plenty of opportunities and small enough to know your name. If you need a transfer articulation resource and guide for transferring to UAH click here to try our Transfer Equivalency website.

TRANSFER CREDITS FROM ALABAMA 2-YEAR COLLEGES (STARS)

The eligibility of your transfer credits depends on the subject matter of each credit and the accreditation status of the institution that awarded each credit. Credits in academic subjects are usually eligible for transfer if they were awarded by an institution accredited by one of the regional agencies recognized by the American Council on Education.

Transfer coursework will appear on your transcript, however, the academic department offering your major will determine if each course will apply toward your degree. A maximum of 64 semester hours of credit from a junior, community or two-year college may be transferred to UAH and applied toward a degree program. Requests for exceptions to this rule must be made in writing and approved by the dean of the college in which you are enrolled.

Want a quick and simple way to see which credits will transfer? If you're transferring from a public two-year community college in Alabama, check the STARS (Statewide Articulation Reporting System) website. You can select a major and access a list of community college/core curriculum courses that will apply to that particular degree.

ADDITIONAL TRANSFER ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS

In addition to the STARS system for community colleges within the state of Alabama, UAH also partners with other community colleges and four-year institutions to aid students in the completion of their degree and transfer admission process.  We currently partner with the following programs:

Georgia Perimeter College

Students transferring from Georgia Perimeter College to UAH may participate in the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program between the two institutions. Students must have at least a 2.5 or better gpa and bring in at least 24 semester credit hours of transferable work to qualify under this program. The guarantee assures general admission to the University of Alabama in Huntsville but not necessarily admission to a specific major.

Conditions of the Guarantee

To qualify for the Transfer Admission Guarantee, students must:

1. Complete an Intent to Transfer Form and have it signed by a GPC TAG counselor.

2. Submit the Undergraduate Application for Admission and application fee to UAH during the last semester at GPC prior to completion of the associate’s degree and before the end of UAH’s application filing period for acceptance.

3. Complete, with C grades or better, the English composition and mathematics courses required for admission at least two semesters preceding the term the student plans to transfer to UAH.

4. Complete at least 60 UAH transferable semester credits satisfying all areas of GPC’s core curriculum with C grades or better.

Transfer Credits from other Colleges / Universities

The eligibility of your transfer credits depends on the subject matter of each credit and the accreditation status of the institution that awarded each credit. Credits in academic subjects are usually eligible for transfer if they were awarded by an institution accredited by one of the regional agencies recognized by the American Council on Education.

Transfer coursework will appear on your UAH transcript, however, the academic department offering your major will determine if each course will apply toward your degree. If you are transferring from an accredited four-year institution, the number of hours you may transfer is unlimited. However, remedial, technical, vocational, and orientation credits are not considered.

Please note: Acceptance of transfer credit by the Office of Admission and application of credits to a specific degree program by the academic department are two separate and distinct processes. Consult an academic advisor for degree applicability within the desired degree program.
