When is the application deadline?

UAH suggests that transfer students apply no later than two months prior to the beginning of your intended semester of entry. Because UAH offers rolling admissions, we do not have an admissions application deadline. Transfer Merit Tuition Scholarships, which are based on cumulative college GPA, are automatically awarded at the time of admission.

Application Requirements

Each applicant is evaluated based on individual merit and demonstrated success in a rigorous academic environment.

  • Applicant must hold a minimum overall college "C" average (2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale), along with a minimum "C" average (2.0 GPA) in all transferrable courses.
  • Applicant's previous institution(s) must be regionally accredited.
  • Applicant must be in good standing at previous institution(s).
  • An official final transcript will be required as soon as it is available for any work completed after submitting your application for admission.

Submit Your Transcripts & Scores

Complete your application by submitting the required documents.

College Transcripts

Send official college transcript(s) from each previously attended college/university to UAH through an electronic delivery service such as Docufide/Parchment, E-Scrip, or Student Clearinghouse.

If your college/university does not have access to these services, request that they send your official hard-copy transcripts to:

UAH Admissions
SSB, Suite 106
301 Sparkman Drive
Huntsville, AL 35899

Do I need to submit all previous transcripts?

Yes. Transfer students are required to submit official transcripts from every institution attended, regardless of length of attendance or credits earned. An application for admission will not be evaluated until all documents have been received.

Students with Fewer than 24 Academic Credit Hours

If you have fewer than 24 academic credit hours, you must also submit the following:

  • High School Transcripts

    Send your official high school transcripts to UAH through an electronic delivery service such as Docufide/Parchment, E-Scrip, or Student Clearinghouse.

    If your school does not have access to these services, request that they send your official hard-copy transcripts to:

    UAH Admissions
    SSB, Suite 106
    301 Sparkman Drive
    Huntsville, AL 35899

  • ACT/SAT Scores

    Have your official ACT or SAT scores sent directly to UAH by the testing agency.

    ACT
    Actstudent.org
    School code: 0053

    SAT
    Collegeboard.org
    School code: 1854

    Note

    High school graduates who have been out of high school for five or more years may not be required to submit ACT or SAT test scores. We accept ACT or SAT scores listed on your official high school transcript.

Have you received my transcripts?

You can see if your transcripts have been received through your Charger Status account. The supplemental items checklist displays all items needed for admission consideration and indicates what items have and have not been received.

Transfer Credit Eligibility

UAH accepts credits from regionally-accredited institutions. The official credit evaluation does not take place until after you have been admitted. Once credit has been evaluated, you can review transfer credit on your Academic Transcript through my.uah.edu. To get an idea of what credits may transfer prior to completing the admissions process, visit our Transfer Equivalency page or schedule an appointment with an academic advisor in the college of your major.

Transferring from a 4-Year College

If you are transferring from an accredited four-year institution, you may transfer an unlimited number of semester 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

If you are transferring from from a junior, community, or two-year college, you may transfer a maximum of 64 semester hours. Exceptions require written approval from the dean of the college in which you are enrolled.

Statewide Articulation Reporting System (STARS)

If you are transferring from a public two-year community college in Alabama, visit the STARS website to select a major and access a list of community colleges and core courses that will apply to your program of choice.

I want to be a Visiting/Transient student. What do I need to do?

Students who are currently enrolled at another college but wish to take courses at UAH as a visiting student for one semester, with credits transferring back to their home institution, must apply for admission as a Non Degree student.
