Put your college credits to work at the University of Arizona Global Campus!

Upon being granted provisional admission to your chosen degree program, the Records Management staff will begin requesting transcripts of your prior postsecondary education using the signed Transcript Request form. The Records Management Department will request official transcripts of all prior postsecondary education, as provided by you in the application for admission, as well as any school appearing in your National Student Clearinghouse record. This request includes:
- College or university transcripts from any approved accredited postsecondary educational institution attended
- Military credits evaluated for equivalency to college credits
You are responsible for submitting official documentation of any postsecondary credit previously earned through examination or credit earned through non-collegiate instruction to be evaluated for applicability to the University of Arizona Global Campus program requirements.
Once transcripts of all prior postsecondary education have been received, the Registrar’s Office staff will complete your transfer credit evaluation. Two weeks prior to the conclusion of the fourth (4th) attempted the University of Arizona Global Campus course in a degree seeking program, if any transcripts of prior postsecondary education have not yet been received, the Registrar’s Office staff will proceed with the transfer credit evaluation of any transcripts of postsecondary education received to date.
