TRANSFER SITUATION:

I am transferring from an Alabama public two-year community college to another Alabama public two-year community college.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. You should have no problem transferring among Alabama public two-year community colleges. The two-year community colleges in the state work from a common course directory. That means all their courses have the same course numbers and course content. Basically, all the community colleges offer courses from this common course directory and all the courses should be the same no matter what community college offers them. All your credits should transfer within the community college system with no loss of credits. If you have any problems or need more information, please contact the Alabama Community College System.

I am transferring from an Alabama public four-year university to another Alabama public four-year university.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. At this time, STARS cannot provide you with specific transfer information you need. However, you can view the AGSC approved course listing for your university by going HERE. Click the link for your university. The courses that appear on the listing will transfer to any other public four-year university within Alabama. (NOTE: For any other courses not appearing on theses listings, you will need to contact the university you are transferring to for information on how these courses will transfer. Also, certain majors may require specific courses as pre-requsites for future courses. The best thing to do is to make an appointment with the institution to which you plan to transfer and take a copy of your current transcript to be evaluated for transfer equivalencies.)

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. We currently do not have any information on any private institutions. You will need to contact the institution you are transferring to for more information.


TRANSFER SITUATION:

I am currently a high school student. I am not sure what I want to do after I graduate.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. At this time, STARS cannot provide you with specific transfer information relating to your situation. It is strongly recommended that prior to graduation from high school that you begin to think about possible careers (majors). In addition, you should begin to investigate possible college/university choices. If you have not yet chosen a college/university, we would strongly encourage you to attend one of the public institutions of higher education in Alabama. Once you have decided where you will attend school, we will better be able to assist you.


TRANSFER SITUATION:

I am transferring from an out-of-state institution to an institution in Alabama.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. We currently do not have any information on any out-of-state institutions. You will need to contact the institution you are transferring to for transfer information. You may view our links page for a link to the institution you are planning to transfer to. Many of the institutions now maintain equivalency charts on their web sites. This may be worth investigating to see if you can obtain this information about how courses transfer into their institution.

OUR ADVICE:

TRANSFER SITUATION:

At this time, I am not planning to transfer, however I am planning to take courses at another institution and transfer them back to my home institution.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. In this situation, you will be consider a transient student. You will need to go by the records office at your home institution and file paperwork to declare transient student status. During the process of filling out the paperwork, someone in the records office or an advisor will help you decide what courses they will accept for credit if taken from the other institution. You can only take the courses they list on the official transient form. You are still considered a student of your current institution. They are simply giving you permission to take a course from another institution and transfer it back at a later date.


TRANSFER SITUATION:

I am not planning to transfer but need a STARS guide for an assignment at my community college.

OUR ADVICE:

Thank you for using STARS. The Alabama Community College System has begun a campaign to better inform students of the STARS System and how it can save them time and money if they ultimately plan to transfer to a public four-year university in Alabama. As a result, you, as a two-year student, may be required (through an orientation or some other class assignment) to access the STARS System and print a transfer guide in the major(s) of your choice. Sometimes, students who attend two-year community colleges do not plan to pursue additional education beyond the first two-years. This is ok. However, one day, those same students may decide that they do want to transfer in-state to a public four-year college and begin working on a bachelor's degree. In this case, it would be wise for the student to have a STARS Transfer Guide to fall back on (or at least have the knowledge to know how to go out on the web and obtain this state approved transfer information).

If you are printing a STARS Transfer guide as a class assignment, just go back to STEP 1, click on the green scenario button (transferring from public two-year community college to a public four-year university in Alabama). When you get to STEP 2, please fill in your information, select the school you are currently attending, and pick a major that is of interest to you. In STEP 3, pick the two colleges that you might one day consider transferring to. Print the guide and turn it in with your assignment.

NOTE: By obtaining a transfer guide for an assignment, you are not required to transfer to a four-year school at some later point in time. Instead, the guide should be treated as a "transfer insurance policy." You may never use it, but it might be very helpful to you if you ever transferred to an Alabama public four-year institution. PLUS THE SERVICES IS FREE AND IT ONLY TAKES A FEW MINUTES PRINT YOUR GUIDE!
