How It Works

The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice is proud that so many transfer students select this program. Here’s what students need to know about transferring.

 

1. First, check on grades, degree or transfer program certificate that assure admission to ASU.

Arizona transfer students must meet one of the following requirements:

• Associate degree with a 2.00 cumulative GPA or higher (4.00=A).

• Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) with a 2.50 cumulative GPA or higher (4.00=A).

• Complete a transfer pathway program through an accredited Arizona community college. Pathways include: Maricopa - ASU Pathways Program (MAPP), , Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG), Associate of Applied Science to Bachelor of Applied Science (AAS-BAS).

Nonresident transfer students must meet one of the following requirements:

• Associate degree with a 2.50 cumulative GPA or higher (4.00=A).

• AGEC with a 2.50 cumulative GPA or higher (4.00=A). (For those students transferring from a California community college, ASU accepts the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum/California State University General Education [IGETC/CSU GE] patterns).

• ASU welcomes applications from a broad profile of transfer students from community colleges and four-year institutions. Transfer specialists work with students to assist with the transfer process and to develop a plan for a smooth transition to ASU.

1. Once a student knows he or she meets the transfer requirements, that student will need to make sure to have the necessary documentation listed below:

• Official high school transcript with high school graduation date.

• GED with acceptable score of 500 or above.

• Official college transcript with Associate degree posted (including award date).

• Official college transcript with Associate degree in progress posted (including expected award date).

2. Apply to ASU: Applying to the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice is pretty easy.  Start an online application by clicking here.  Remember to write down the application ID and password.

a. Submit application fee.  Before an application is reviewed, students must pay a non-refundable application fee.  For Arizona residents, it’s $50, non-residents pay $65.  Prospective ASU ONLINE students pay a $65 application regardless of location.

3. Request official transcripts and test scores. It’s up to the student to request transcripts be sent to ASU from his or her  high school and/or community college/university. 

HOW CREDITS TRANSFER TO ASU: The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice will accept transfer credit for traditional course work successfully completed (grade C or higher) at regionally accredited institutions of higher education.  If transferring from an Arizona  community college, just visit aztransfer.com to see how courses transfer to ASU.

Keep in mind that ASU doesn’t accept credit for courses in where a student earned a C- or below or credit from institutions that lack accreditation by a regional accrediting association. Credit given for ‘life experience’ will not be accepted, nor will credit awarded from non-collegiate institutions (e.g., governmental agencies, corporations, industrial firms, etc.).  Credit awarded by post-secondary institutions for non-credit courses, workshops and seminars offered by other post-secondary institutions as part of continuing education programs will also not be accepted.  Click here for more information about what credits will transfer.

4. After an application is submitted, students receive an ASURITE ID.  This allows them to log on to ASU’s website at My ASU and check their statuses. ASU will review files to make sure students have included all necessary materials. To check on this,  just log into My ASU.

5. Once credit is posted (typically after an admissions decision is made) students can view how their credits transferred through their MY ASU account by using the following pathway: From the main MY ASU page under “My Classes” click on “Transcripts & Test Scores, then click on “Transfer Credit Report.”

6. Once a student has been admitted to ASU it is time to determine his or her first semester’s schedule! Contact the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice by calling 602-496-2356 to schedule an in person or phone advising appointment.
