The atmosphere at TROY is excellent, the professors are understanding and love what they teach, and the campus is easily one of the prettiest in the Southeast. From meeting with an advisor prior to applying, to becoming and full-time student, my transfer process was stress free, fast, and straight forward."”

Transfer Admissions FAQ

Since 1887, TROY has been the University of choice for students who want a quality education and a vibrant on-campus experience. You will find academic programs that will challenge you and prepare you for your career, leadership opportunities that will let you build your confidence, and more. 

Transfer students are considered students who have attempted at least 12 hours of non-developmental coursework at another two-year or four-year institution. Students who fall into this category are not required to submit high school transcripts or test scores. Transfer applicants will be granted admission to TROY if they are in good academic standing at the last college attended and if they have an overall grade point average of at least a 2.00 on all college/university work attempted. Technical and/or remedial/developmental work is not considered in determining grade point average. Applicants who have been suspended from another institution for any reason must be eligible to return to that institution before being considered for admission to TROY.

Students from Alabama community colleges are encouraged to utilize a STARS Guide in preparing to transfer. The guide is designed so that students can follow the course equivalencies for particular majors from the time they enter their community college to the time they transfer.

Troy University is proud to offer you an unofficial transfer equivalency report of your undergraduate transfer credits that you have already completed. This report will allow you to see how the course credits you have already earned may transfer into Troy University. To better understand your progress toward your degree with TROY, you can view the degree requirements in the TROY Academic Catalog.

To request an "Unofficial Transfer Course Equivalency Report," please send copies of your transcripts, your current zip code and a phone number where you can be reached to DMC@troy.edu.
