During your visit, you’ll learn more about our programs, tour the campus and meet with a faculty member. Bring a copy of your transcripts to obtain an unofficial credit evaluation.
Transfer students must have a minimum 2.25 cumulative grade point average in all previous college work. In addition, you must be in good standing with your previous school(s) and not dismissed for academic or social reasons.
Most transfer students benefit from an on-campus appointment with an advisor. While on campus, you get a more comprehensive picture of the university and transfer requirements. If you plan to coordinate your coursework at another school with an Ashland University degree program, you should maintain contact with the Admissions Office to ensure the proper application of credits.
Complete an application for admission. To complete the application process, contact the registrar at each college where you completed coursework and request an official transcript be sent to Ashland University. If you have fewer than 30 hours of college credit, contact your high school guidance office to have an official high school transcript sent as well.
If you are currently enrolled elsewhere, please request a transcript now so that your AU admission can be considered for your desired term. When you finish your current and/or final term, have another official transcript sent.
Official transcripts should be sent directly to:
Ashland University, Office of Admissions 401 College Ave. Ashland, OH 44805
AU also accepts electronic transcripts from SCRIP-SAFE® and Docufide® by Parchment.
Yes. To receive an unofficial evaluation, provide a copy of all classes you have taken or are taking. An official transcript is not necessary; information from the university website is acceptable. If you are unable to visit, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an evaluation. In the written request, please include your name, address, phone number, email address, major and minor (if known), along with copies of transcripts from all schools you have attended or are attending and, if you are currently in school, your current schedule.
All college-level credit with a “C-“ grade or better from a regionally-accredited institution will transfer. Regardless of the number of credits transferring, Ashland University still requires you to complete all degree requirements of your chosen field of study. Most associate degree requirements transfer to Ashland University as the equivalent of 64 semester hours and the student will be granted junior status.
For courses from colleges or universities that do not hold regional accreditation, Ashland University will accept transfer credit on a course-by-course and provisional basis. To be granted transfer credit, students must pass 15 semester hours of credit at Ashland University with “C” grades or better. Ashland University may then accept up to 64 semester hours of credit.
Your official program evaluation is done by the Office of Records & Registration after the beginning of your first semester at Ashland. It will be sent to you and is also available online. Unofficial evaluations are done prior to your official enrollment.
If you have college credits using a quarter academic calendar, or any other calendar, your credits will be adjusted based on a semester calendar.
While Ashland University does not formally participate in the Ohio Statewide Articulation and Transfer Policy, the Transfer Module is one basis for evaluating course equivalencies when transferring general education courses to meet Ashland’s Institutional Baccalaureate Requirements.
No. Credits earned without an associate degree will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Coursework transferred to Ashland University may be credited in the following ways:
A college-level course equivalent in content to any course offered at Ashland University and completed with a “C-“ grade or better will be given course-specific credit.
A college-level course not equivalent in content to an Ashland University course and completed with a “C-“ grade or better will be granted general elective credit.
Please contact the Athletic Department or the coach of your specific sport at Ashland University.
