Transferring Credits to UAA

Most transfer students are interested in learning how their credits will transfer to UAA.  Part of the admissions process will include an official transfer evaluation.  Normally, a transfer evaluation will be completed approximately three weeks after UAA receives your official transcript(s).  Once the transfer evaluation is complete a copy will be mailed to you.   However, in the meantime, you are welcome to use UAA’s transfer credit resource site.  You can access this site by clicking HERE.  At this site you can locate the college or university you are currently attending and view how courses previously taken at your institution have transferred to UAA.  If a course you have taken is not on the list, it means nobody has transferred that particular course to UAA.  Also, check out UAA's Admissions Transfer Student Information.


Applying for Admission

To apply for admission, go to and on the right hand side of the page, click on UAonline, then click on Apply for Admission.  The application cost is $50.00 for baccalaureate degree programs and $40.00 for associate degree and certificate programs.  Once your transfer evaluation is complete, you should schedule an appointment with an advisor.  Click HERE for a complete list of advising contacts.  To obtain a curriculum check list of the courses required in your major, go to UAA’s home page at and on the right hand side click on academics If you see your major listed, click on that link.  If you do not find your program of interest listed, try clicking on one of the college links listed on the right.  Make sure you request to have all of your college level transcripts sent to UAA.  As long as you have completed 30 or more credits, you will not need to send your high school transcript.  Transcripts can be sent to Office of Enrollment Management, P.O.
