External Course Pre-Approval Form

  • This form is required of undergraduate students intending to take courses outside of AUP; it determines the equivalencies they will received when transferred back to AUP.
  • It is recommended that students have twice as many courses pre-approved than needed in order to give the student flexibility once on-site at the external institution.
  • No more than 64 transfer credits can be used towards a degree. 50% of all upper-level coursework (3000 and 4000 level courses) in the major must be completed at AUP, and no more than 8 transfer credits can be used to complete a minor. 
  • No more than 18 transfer credits are allowed post-matriculation unless completed in an AUP approved exchange program, and the final 16 credits prior to graduation must be completed at AUP.
  • Only students with a GPA of 2.5 or greater may take external courses for transfer.
  • Official, final transcripts from the external institution must be received by AUP's Registrar Office within one semester after course completion to finalize the transfer of credits.
