Transfer Information

The College of Engineering welcomes students seeking to transfer into UA from other colleges and universities.

If you are planning to transfer to the University of Alabama from a junior or community college in Alabama, you will need to know the junior or community college equivalents to University of Alabama courses. The STARS (Statewide Transfer and Articulation Reporting System) website offers detailed information about course equivalencies and requirements. For the purposes of the STARS system, courses are organized into five categories:

For information about Areas I-IV, visit the University of Alabama registrar’s office website or request a STARS Transfer Guide.

Because Area V requirements are set at the college or departmental level, you must consult the college in which your major, program or elective is based to determine course equivalencies. Area V requirements for majors, programs and electives offered within the College Engineering are listed below.
