Transferring your courses to U of A

Is their a maximum number of credits I can transfer?

Yes, a maximum of 64 community college transfer units may be applied to the total units needed for graduation. Please review the UA academic policy for Credits from Community Colleges for more information.

How will my course(s) transfer?

If you have taken or plan to take a course at an Arizona University or Community College, please review the Course Equivalency Guide to see how your course(s) transfers to UA. 

Who determines how my course(s) will transfer?

The Office of Transfer Credit & Articulation will evaluate 1) if a course is transferrable to UA and 2) if a course is upper or lower division. These determinations are not made by an advisor. An advisor can tell you how the credits can be applied to your degree once they are accepted and transferred.

Where can I pre-approve my transfer credit(s)?

To obtain Pre-Approval of transfer credit, please refer to the Transfer Credit Pre-Approval Form. To ensure that courses will transfer and fulfill requirements, please make sure to get approval prior to enrolling in a course at an out-of-state school.

Can I take COMM courses at Pima?

Yes, there are some lower division Communication courses that are offered at Pima Community College. Check the Course Equivalency Guide to see how your course will transfer to UA. COMM coursework at Pima is listed under the SPE prefix. 

I'm a transfer student visiting UA, how can I meet with a COMM advisor?

If you are an incoming transfer student, please make an appointment with a Communication advisor. Do not come to walk-in hours. An appointment will give us ample time to review your transfer credit and answer your questions.

Transfer students from Pima Community College can find important information attached below. While this information is specific to Pima CC, students transferring from other schools may also find the information valuable.
