Frequently Asked Questions

During the application process:

  • Unofficial college transcripts from each academic institution you have attended
  • Unofficial high school / secondary transcripts may be required

After acceptance to Andrews University:

  • Official college transcripts from each academic institution you have attended
  • Official college transcripts issued in languages other than English must be accompanied by an authorized English translation.
  • Official high school / secondary transcripts

*Andrews University reserves the right to request external credential evaluations for international transcripts.

Students who have attended an unaccredited post-secondary institution are admitted based on regular admission criteria for Freshman students. Transfer credits may be accepted as elective credits based on an evaluation of the institution issuing the credits. The credits may then be applied to a program of study when approved by the department chair/program director and/or ACE director as appropriate. On occasion, Andrews University may create an articulation agreement with an unaccredited institution based on prior history with the success of students from the institution.

We will start the articulation process after admission to the university and the reception of all your official transcripts. Classes listed on the transcript will be evaluated for potential credit toward your Andrews degree and will be reposted in DegreeWorks in your student account. If your transfer credit does not have a direct equivalent listed you may petition after you've demonstrated satisfactory academic performance at Andrews through your department advisor or the director of Andrews Core Experience.

  • Up to 70 semester hours can be transferred from community colleges (two-year) to any undergraduate degree. 
  • A maximum of 30 transfer credits may be included in the last 60 credits of a bachelors degree.
  • A maximum of 15 transfer credits may be included in the last 30 credits of an associates degree. 

Importance Notice: Requests for transfer of credits may be made only at the time of admission to the University, at the time when a change of program is approved, or if a petition to accept the course is approved and on file before a course is taken. 

Prospective students can upload unofficial transcripts directly into the application system during the application process. You must submit transcripts from all  previously attended colleges and a proof of completion of high school (such as official high school transcript or a GED certificate).

For educational institutions outside the United States, prospective students must upload both original language and word-for-word English translation (unless transcripts are routinely issued in English by the institution).*

All unofficial transcripts must have the following to be acceptable for consideration:

  • Applicant's name
  • Institution's name
  • All courses taken with grades, scores, or marks earned
  • CGPA (if applicable)

*The Enrollment office reserves the right to request external credential evaluations for international transcripts.

Important notice: All admitted students are required to submit official final transcripts after admission decision.

An official transcript is an academic record that has been received from an issuing institution or a secure, authenticated designated party. It must bear an institutional validation (such as seal, logo, or watermark), date, and appropriate signature. Transcripts received that do not meet these requirements will not be considered official.

Official Transcript Accepted Practices:

  • Transcripts processed by the College(s) and High School attended and mailed directly to the Enrollment office in a sealed envelope.
