Academic Advisors will review your courses once they are transferred and evaluated (if necessary) to determine what transfer courses will apply toward your degree requirements and where. Not all transferable courses will fulfill a specific degree requirement.
One thing to be aware of is that when your courses transfer over, they may not show EXACTLY what you’ll see on the Major Map. For that reason, it is important to be in contact with your Advisor to determine if your course is applying where it should. A good example of this is with the Calculus I requirement. In SEMTE, the course we have students take is MAT 265: Calculus for Engineers I; however, most transfer students come in with credit for MAT 270: Calculus w/Analytic Geometry I. Both courses are acceptable for that requirement.
It is important to note that if you have AP, IB, Dual Enrollment CLEP, or other credit, you need to have it transferred to ASU. Your test scores need to be sent separately to ASU in order to evaluate them based on our criteria. An example of this would be if you were previously awarded ENG 101 credit at another university from AP, it does not necessarily mean that you will be awarded the same credit at ASU.
Transfer Credit Guide
The Transfer Credit Guide (webapp4.asu.edu/transfercreditguide/app/home) is a great resource when dealing with Transfer credits for two reasons. First, you can use it to see what your courses you have taken elsewhere are going to be equivalent to here at ASU. Second, it gives you a chance to submit courses you have taken elsewhere that have not been evaluated to our Articulation department so that they can evaluate the course and let you know what its equivalency is here at ASU. If you have any questions on what you are seeing on the Guide or how to submit a course to it, you are always welcome to reach out to your advisor.
