Transfer Credit Eligibility

Eligibility of transfer credits depends upon subject matter of each credit and accreditation status for the institution awarding each credit. Not all transferable classes are applicable to every degree program offered at UAH. Consult our academic advisors to arrange evaluation of credits.

Transferring from a 4-Year College

If you are transferring from an accredited four-year institution, you may transfer an unlimited number hours with the exception of technical, remedial, vocational, and orientation credits. UAH requires that 25% of total requirements and 12 of the final 18 degree hours are completed with UAH courses.

Transferring from a 2-Year College

A maximum of 64 semester hours of credit from a junior, community, or two-year college may be transferred and applied to a degree program at UAH. Exceptions require written approval from the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled.
