AREA V Pages (Transfer Assistance Pages)
________________________________________________________________________________________________

What are AREA V Pages and why are they important?

AREA V Pages are web pages maintained by each individual public four-year institution in Alabama. The primary purpose of AREA V pages is to provide transfer students with additional information about transfer coursework that can be taken at the two-year institutions to complete the AREA V requirements not covered on the official STARS Transfer Guide. Four-year institutions can also use these pages to provide information to transfer students about specific admission criteria and requirements for specific academic programs. In addition, four-year institutions can make strong recommendations in AREAS I-IV as long as they do not limit choices by transfer students in those areas.

All AREA V Pages should also include information that assists transfer students as they prepared to move from the two-year colleges system to the university of their choice. Most, if not all, of these pages include links to the following information pertaining to the receiving institution:

  • Admissions Requirements
  • Admission Application
  • Tuition/Fee Costs
  • Financial Aid Assistance and Information
  • Links to major specific AREA V Pages
  • Scholarship Information
  • Advising Information
  • Current Bulletin/Catalog
  • Links to Various Departments/Colleges

NOTE: To better assist students, every STARS guide viewed includes a listing of the institutions that offer bachelor degrees in the student's chosen major (see image below). This listing is directly to the institutional web site and their AREA V Page (and Transfer Assistance page is separate from the AREA V page).




Area V Pages should NOT...

  • AREA V pages should NOT be used as a replacement to circumvent the state-approved STARS Transfer Guide. The STARS Transfer Guide requirements are protected by the AGSC Transfer Agreement. If a contradiction exists between the STARS Guide and the information presented on an AREA V page, the STARS Transfer Guide always takes precedent over the content on the AREA V page.

  • AREA V pages should NOT make specific requirements that limit student choices allowed by the STARS Transfer Guide. The four-year institution can "STRONGLY RECOMMEND" that students choose specific courses in certain areas as long as they still accept other courses that the student selects that are prescribed as choices on the STARS Transfer Guide.


Questions about Area V Pages

If you have questions about an institution's Transfer Assistance Page or AREA V Page, please contact that institution's point of contact for AGSC/STARS matters. The point of contact, in turn, will contact our office if necessary. If a page is not working or you think the information presented is incorrect or in violation of the AGSC policies, please contact the STARS Office.
