Transfer Planning

UNC Asheville welcomes transfer students from other institutions. Please see our transfer requirements and credit equivalencies below. Feel free to contact the Office of the Registrar with any questions at or 828.350.4500.

Course Equivalencies

Use the transfer equivalencies tool to see how courses taken at other institutions transfer to UNC Asheville.

This system reflects previously approved course equivalents at UNC Asheville. If you do not see a specific institution or course listed, it means that we have not yet evaluated course(s) from that institution. Currently enrolled students who are considering taking courses elsewhere should contact the Transfer Evaluator in the Registrar’s office to determine possible equivalencies.

Note to transfer applicants: We are only able to provide an official transcript evaluation upon acceptance to UNCA. Transcript evaluations are completed within two weeks of your acceptance. If you have any questions, please contact

How can I send an official transcript of my Cambridge exam grades to my chosen educational institution?

You can use the transcript application form (PDF, 952KB) to send your Cambridge International AS & A Level exam grades to your chosen institution(s) if they need a copy of your official exam grades to make credit by exam, placement or other decisions that depend on the exam grades. Transcripts are sent within 28 days of confirming we have received the order. There is no charge for this service. Cambridge International AS & A level exam grades will come on a combined transcript. For more information, please visit the Cambridge website.

College Level Examination (CLEP) Credit

Passage of CLEP exams is defined as scoring at the 50th percentile or above, which requires a score of 500 or better. A total of 3 semester hours of credit is awarded for each of the exams below with the required score. A combined total of no more than 30 semester hours of credit for CLEP and PEP exams may be accepted by UNC Asheville.

Note: Current students wishing to take one or more CLEP exams must obtain prior approval from the Office of the Registrar by submitting a Visiting Permission form. Students who have earned 90 or more semester hours, or if the hours earned from the CLEP exam(s) will cause the student to exceed 90 hours, must consult with the Office of the Registrar to request special permission.
