We know that you may be feeling excited, anxious, or nervous about the idea of transferring. Students from diverse backgrounds and degree interests transfer in to be part of Jag Nation. We invite you to learn more about how to successfully transition to Augusta University and complete your degree at AU!
Visit our Transfer Equivalency Guide to find your previous college courses and military experience, check out how you might benefit from academic partnership agreements AU has with other colleges and training entities, and read our transfer credit policy.
Transfer student applicants have earned 30 or more transferable credits (45 quarter hours) from regionally accredited post-secondary institution(s) and have earned at least a cumulative 2.3 GPA on all previous college courses attempted.
Transfer freshmen applicants have attended college after high school but have earned less than 30 transferable credits (45 quarter hours) from regionally accredited post-secondary institution(s). They must earn at least a cumulative 2.3 GPA on all previous college courses attempted and meet admissions requirements for freshman admissions (including SAT/ACT, High School GPA and Required High School curriculum).
Life Enrichment transfer applicants have attended college after high school, have not earned more than 30 transferable credits (45 quarter hours), and have graduated high school over five years ago. If you are a Life Enrichment transfer applicant, please see the admissions requirements here.
If you are a transfer applicant who seeks direct entry into an allied health or undergraduate nursing program at AU, see program-specific admissions guidelines and requirements here.
If you still need to take prerequisite courses to prepare for admission to an allied health or undergraduate nursing program, please apply as a freshman or transfer student.
If you are an international student transferring from either a U.S. or foreign institution, you should complete the transfer student application, and you may have additional admissions requirements. Learn more about international student admissions requirements here.
Step 1 – Application
Apply online and submit a non-refundable $55 application fee. We do accept NACAC transfer fee waivers – learn more here.
Already applied? You can log into your personalized application portal and check the status of your application here.
Step 2 – Submit Official Documentation
Submit your official college transcripts. Use your application status portal to see all transcripts required to complete your application. If you believe you did not attend an institution that appears in your materials checklist, contact email@example.com for directions on how to obtain the appropriate substitute document.
Send your transcripts electronically directly to Academic Admissions from your college or university, or third-party service they use like Parchment, E-scrip, or National Student Clearinghouse. Choose Augusta University Undergraduate Admissions (or designate firstname.lastname@example.org) as the direct recipient for your document.
Or, you can request a transcript through postal mail. Bring transcripts to our office in their original sealed envelope exactly as received from the originally issuing institution. Transcripts can also be mailed to:
Office of Academic Admissions
1120 15th Street, Benet House
Augusta, GA 30912
We cannot accept electronic copies of transcripts provided by the student or official transcripts that have already been opened.
Freshman Transfer applicants must also submit their official, final high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores.
Step 3 – Confirm Your Enrollment
If you are admitted, you will need to secure your seat by confirming your enrollment in your application status portal.
Transfer applicants admitted to allied health or nursing programs also must submit an enrollment deposit. Enrollment deposit amount varies by program.
After submitting the acceptance agreement on your portal and activating your AU credentials, you can access POUNCE and other AU Portals for students.
Students in selective or graduate programs whose academic endeavors were interrupted by their military service will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
