Transferring to ASUMH
Credits for Prior Learning
ASUMH recognizes students may have gained college-level knowledge through learning outside the University. ASUMH identifies Transfer Credit from another Institution, Credit from High School, External Assessment for Previous Knowledge, and Internal Assessment for Previous Knowledge as being the most common forms of credit from prior learning.
Transfer Credit from Another Institution - ASUMH accepts transcripts from other higher education institutions as well as transcripts for military servicemen and servicewomen through the American Council on Education (ACE). These types of transcripts are requested as part of the Application process and evaluated for equitable credit once obtained.
Credit from High School - Credit at ASUMH can be awarded from high school through concurrent or articulated classes. Students that take concurrent courses at ASUMH while in high school automatically earn credit at ASUMH. Students that have taken concurrent courses through a different university would need to submit that documentation in the Application process. Articulated credit is earned through a relationship between ASUMH and certain high schools. This information can be found on the Articulated Credit webpage.
External Assessment for Previous Knowledge - Credit can be awarded at ASUMH through nationally recognized assessment exams such as College-Level Examinations Program (CLEP), College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP), and TekAssess. AP exam scores should be submitted as part of the Application process. CLEP and TekAssess testing can be done on campus; for more information please visit the Testing Center website. The TekAssess is utilized for the Computer Exam Challenge which awards students credit for CIS 1053 Computer Essentials and/or CIS 1203 Introduction to Computers and has a non-financial aid eligible cost through the Testing Center. The required scores for ASUMH credit for all exams and the cost for the Computer Exam Challenge can be found in the most current ASUMH Course Catalog.
Internal Assessment for Previous Knowledge - Credit at ASUMH can be awarded through on-campus Prior Learning Assessments (PLA). These assessments include the Custom Course Challenge Exam, Prior Learning Assessment Portfolio, and Industry Certification and Licensures. For more information on these assessments please visit the Prior Learning Assessment webpage.
