ABOUT THIS DOCUMENT:
Troy University is dedicated to making the transfer transition as easy as
possible. As required by Alabama State Law, Troy
University will take your course work as outlined on the STARS
and graduate you with the same number of hours as our native students in the
same major (assuming you do not change majors). The STARS Transfer
Guide and the Troy University Area V page, if used correctly, guides the
student through their first two years of course work and prevents loss of
credit hours upon transfer to Troy University. If you have obtained a
STARS Transfer Guide for General Science / Education, we would strongly
recommend that you print this page and use it along with your official
STARS guide. Upon transfer, please bring these documents so that we can
insure a smooth academic transition from the community college to one of our
Troy University Campuses.
