General Education Information for Transfer Students

Students transferring to Azusa Pacific University may have some of their General Education requirements met by classes taken at their previous institution(s). Additionally, the unit requirements for “God’s Word and the Christian Response” may be adjusted, depending on the number of units that the student transfers to APU.

The evaluation of a student’s transfer work is conducted by One Stop | Registrar. All students are encouraged to work with One Stop | Undergraduate Enrollment Services Center and with their academic advisor to determine their General Education requirements. While the following chart serves as a guide for the student, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all requirements are met. For the most current information, please visit One Stop or the Office of Academic Advising and Retention.

Students who re-enroll at APU after leaving APU and spending two or more consecutive semesters at another academic institution may have those transferable units applied towards their General Education God’s Word requirements. Only units transferred at re-enrollment will be considered.
