The School of Molecular Sciences works with many transfer students. We know that transfer students have concerns about transitioning to ASU and questions about how their credits will transfer. This page details the step-by-step process students should follow to ensure an easy transition.
• STEP 1: Investigate ASU opportunities
• STEP 2: Apply to ASU
• STEP 3: Plan for registration and transfer workshop
• STEP 4: Learn about the transfer credit evaluation process
• STEP 5: Complete steps in MyASU
• STEP 6: Finish the Advising/Registration Process
STEP 1 Investigate opportunities at ASU. Prior to applying for admission, we encourage students to learn about ASU’s degree programs and about the transfer process.
• Learn about Transferring to ASU: Transfer
• Learn about ASU’s School of Molecular Science majors: Degrees and Minors
STEP 2 Apply to ASU. Be sure to request that all of your official transcripts from high school (s) and college(s) are sent to the ASU Admissions Office. Students are also responsible for sending their official test scores to the ASU Admissions Office (College Board-Advanced Placement (AP) exam scores, International Baccalaureate (IB) exams scores and CLEP exam scores). Only credit on official documents are appended to the official ASU record.
STEP 3 Plan for registration and transfer workshop. Once admitted you will receive information regarding a transfer workshop in the Armstrong Hall Advising HUB.
To register for classes, transfer students need to do one or both of the following actions:
Action 2: Take tests. Students who have not completed a college mathematics course should take the ALEKS assessment before meeting with their academic advisor and attending the transfer workshop. You may take the ALEKS assessment online. Be aware that your scores will take 72 hours to process in the system. You should not delay in taking the assessment or taking your requisite math course. You may take the test two times and the score is good for one year. To access the exam, please go to the ALEKS Mathematics Placement Assessment. To take Calculus I (MAT 270) you must score a 76 or higher on the assessment. To enroll in Precalculus (MAT 170) you must score at least 60. We recommend that you print a copy of your scores should you need to access them later. New students should bring a copy of their test score to the transfer workshop or to their first meeting with their academic advisor.
Students who want to take a language course should take the language placement exam before meeting with their advisor or attending the workshop. You may take the language test online. This test is self-diagnostic and should be used as a recommendation for selecting a section in which you will have greatest success. The results of the test are not reported elsewhere. We recommend that you print a copy of your scores should you need to access them later. New students should bring a copy of their test score to the transfer workshop or to their first meeting with their academic advisor.
