Evaluations and Transfer Credit

3.2.5 Course Registration While Waiting for Evaluation Completion

While you wait for your evaluation of previous education to be completed, you may register in courses. If your course duplicates course work already completed, you can only receive credit for one of the courses. AU cannot officially approve any courses as being applicable to your program until your evaluation is complete.

If you register in a course and are subsequently given transfer credit for a similar course completed previously, you have the option of withdrawing from the course. Refer to Course Withdrawal – Individualized Study and Course Withdrawal – Grouped Study.

Course selection assistance may be obtained from an AU student advisor by submitting an Information Request Form.


Information effective Sept. 1, 2015 to Aug. 31, 2016.
