Who determines how my course(s) will transfer?

The Office of Transfer Credit & Articulation will evaluate 1) if a course is transferrable to UArizona 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.

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 advisors ample time to review your transfer credit and answer your questions.
