Frequently Asked Questions

I took a class at another institution last summer. Can I still transfer that credit to UA?

Possibly, though it’s better to complete a letter of transiency before you take a course somewhere else. Why? Because it’s possible the course won’t translate into UA credit, or that the course actually duplicates work you’ve already completed (i.e., the transfer course might be equivalent to a course you’ve already completed at UA). In the case of duplication, you lose the credit and grade earned for the first course.

If you still want to seek credit for a course taken elsewhere, log in to myBama to complete a letter of transiency (found under the Student tab), and have a transcript of your work at the other institution sent to the UA registrar.
