appreciate your interest in Troy University.
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 Collaborative Teacher (K-6 or 6-12), 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.
This is for use Alabama Community College students only. If you are
transferring to Troy University from another institution outside of the
Alabama Community College System, please contact our admissions office for
up-to-date transfer information.

AREA of your major specific guide, unless exceptions and/or recommendations
