Transferring to ASUN

Beginning Summer 2019, ASU-Newport transfer credit is evaluated when a Navigator or Faculty Members submits a Request for Transfer Credit Evaluation Form on behalf of the student. The completion and submission of the form are typically done during the initial advising appointment. This allows for accurate transferring of credits based on the current student enrollment.  The Registrar (or designee) is the institutional transfer officer responsible for the evaluation. 

This evaluation is based on a recommendation of course acceptability as determined by the academic department and college standards. Below is a list of tasks that need to be done before a student transfers from another post-secondary institution. 

Admissions:

  • Complete an application for admissions.
  • Request a sealed transcript from Admissions to be mailed with application. You will need to send an official transcript from the LAST post-secondary institution you have attended
  • Request a copy of your shot records, if applicable. 
  • Once you have completed your final semester with us, you will need to request the Admissions office to mail an official transcript to the new institution.
  • You will also need to request an official transcript be sent to the scholarship office.

Registrar:

ASUN requires that transfer students submit an official transcript from the most recent post-secondary institution attended. The Registrar retains the option to request transcripts (official or unofficial) from other colleges attended to more accurately award transfer credit. If you wish to have other transcripts evaluated for possible transfer credits that may not appear on the transcript from the last institution you attended, you will need to provide these to ASUN.

Special note for students who plan to use Veteran’s Educational benefits:  The Veteran’s Administration requires that an official copy of all post-secondary transcripts be on file (School Certifying Official Handbook, pages 118,119). Courses outside of the general education core will be evaluated for content alignment by specific program directors for ASUN equivalencies. In these circumstances, a student must declare a major requiring career and technical coursework and must inform the Registrar’s office of his or her intent to seek program-specific transfer credit. Students who present official transcripts displaying contact hour (or clock hour) coursework with passing grades may receive clock hour to semester hour course equivalent credit toward their declared major, which must be a technical certificate or certificate of proficiency, to be determined by the program director. Contact (or clock hour) credits will not be awarded for Associate level programs. Only the courses determined to be appropriate for the program of study requested will be added to the student’s ASUN transcript. The transfer credit hours will not be included in the cumulative grade point average reflected on the transcript.
