ASU hits huge milestone in easing path for transfer students

Most bachelor’s degree programs at Arizona State University require at least 120 credits.

Every one of those credits is hard won with serious work and sacrifice. So no student wants to see precious credits slip away when they transfer to ASU, with all those hours of coursework down the drain.

ASU works hard to make sure that transfer students can apply as much of their existing work as possible toward their degree.

One team of staffers at ASU recently hit a remarkable milestone – 1 million course equivalencies evaluated over the last 10 years.
