Transfer Students

The College of Education welcomes transfer students from community colleges to our undergraduate programs!

We know that transferring may seem challenging, so we want to help make the process as easy as possible. If you are planning to transfer to the University of Arizona, College of Education, please contact one of our academic advisors right away for an advising appointment. Academic advisors will meet with you along the way to make sure that your transfer is successful. This is especially crucial because most of our programs require an application the February of your sophomore year for professional admission; academic advisors are here to help you prepare for this as well.

Call (520) 621-7865 to schedule an appointment with the appropriate advisor.

Students are assigned to an advisor according to their major or intended program of study. Review an updated list of advisor assignments.

Professional application deadline dates:

  • Fall admission- 2nd Friday in February (Deaf Studies, Early Childhood, Elementary, Mild-Moderate Disabilities)

The University of Arizona has articulation agreements with the community colleges in Arizona. Advisors will help you translate these agreements and apply them to your program of study. In addition, we encourage students transferring from community colleges in Arizona to complete an Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) to facilitate your transfer process. Please speak with an advisor at an Arizona community college to discuss options for completing coursework leading to an AGEC.

To make a seamless transfer from an Arizona Community College, discuss options with your academic advisors at the community college and at the University of Arizona early and often. 

The University of Arizona has several pathways available at some community colleges in Arizona to provide a clear, supported pathway for transfer students to earn their bachelor's degree. Learn more about these options by visiting UA Admissions or speaking with an academic advisor. Transfer credit information is available for your review or you may meet with an academic advisor.
