State Authorization

The transferability of credits earned at Azusa Pacific University is at the discretion of the receiving college, university, or other education institution. Students considering transferring to any institution should not assume that credits earned in any program of study at Azusa Pacific will be accepted by the receiving institution. Similarly, the ability of a degree, certificate, diploma, or other academic credential earned at Azusa Pacific to satisfy an admission requirement of another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Accreditation also does not guarantee that credentials or credits earned at Azusa Pacific will be accepted by or transferred to another institution. To minimize the risk of having to repeat coursework, students should contact the receiving institution in advance for evaluation and determination of transferability of credits and/or acceptability of degrees, diplomas, or certificates earned.  

Program Availability in Your State

As Azusa Pacific works to meet federal and state authorization requirements in states outside California, APU’s home state, we want to bring to your attention that APU’s programs are not available in all states.
