Transfer Course Information & Equivalencies
The tools below will assist you with finding options for completing lower division coursework and determining how that coursework will transfer to Appalachian State University.
The Transfer Equivalency Course Search allows prospective students to evaluate how coursework completed at other institutions may transfer for credit at Appalachian State University. Please note:
- The information provided is not the final determination of credit. A comprehensive evaluation of transcripts for transfer credit will be done when official transcripts are submitted along with the application.
- Effective Fall 2010, credit for coursework that results in a grade of C- and below is not accepted for transfer credit by Appalachian State University
- The list of courses and information provided on the searchable database are not comprehensive; however, as new institutions and courses are evaluated, the information will be added to the list. Prospective applicants who fail to find their institution/s or specific courses of interest in the list may be asked to submit the name of the institution, course description, assigned textbook title, and as much detail about the course as possible
- The official, final articulation of transfer credit is done upon formal application/admission to the university.
Link to undergraduate major checksheets to review lower division major courses (cognates).
Prospective students and applicants with deficiencies in either general education requirements or lower division/cognate degree/major coursework have several options for completion. They include:
- Taking the courses as part of their Associate in Arts Degree, Associate in Science Degree, accepted nursing programs, or the 44-hour-NC Community College core programs
- Community College Online Courses
- UNC Online Courses (students must be admitted to one of the UNC institutions)
- Self-Paced Courses (students can be but are not required to be admitted to one of the UNC institutions)
- Finding ad hoc coursework offered by other institutions in whatever delivery mode is appropriate to the student's needs. Students contemplating this route, should verify that the institution is accredited by one of the official regional accreditors (opens in a new window) and that the course and credit will be accepted by Appalachian and their department to meet the specific requirement. The Distance Education Program Manager can assist with Appalachian institutional and departmental acceptance if needed.
