Undergraduate Transfers

How to transfer from your current institution to one of AU's undergraduate programs.

Students from accredited institutions of higher education may apply for admission to the AU program in the same field of study if they have been of good academic standing, i.e., their Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) is at least 2.0 on a scale of 4.0 or its equivalent, and if they have not been subjected to academically or disciplinary dismissal.

However, students who have not been of good academic standing (i.e. those with a CGPA of less than 2.0 on a scale of 4.0) but not been subjected to academically or disciplinary dismissal may be allowed to transfer only to programs in a field distinctly different from the one in which they were enrolled at the institution they previously attended. (Only the transfer of credited General Education courses may be considered).
