How do I know which courses at my community college will transfer to South?
Students at an Alabama community college may check the STARS web site (Statewide Articulation Reporting System), which lists the courses available at the community college that may be used toward a particular degree program at a four-year school in the state. The AGSC Transfer Guide (Alabama Articulation and General Studies Committee) may be printed and used as a guideline for appropriate courses to take.

If you are attending Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Pensacola Junior College, or Okaloosa-Walton Community College, you may print a list of courses available at your school for transfer to South by visiting the USA Transfer Advising Guides page.

Is there a limit to the number of hours that can transfer from a two-year school?

Yes, only 64 semester hours can be accepted for transfer from a two-year school. A bachelor’s degree requires a minimum of 128 semester hours, and only one-half of your degree can be earned at a two-year school.

Is there a limit to the number of hours of AP and CLEP credit that can be used toward a degree?

Yes, no more than 32 semester hours of credit from Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), International Baccalaureate (IB), credit by exam, correspondence courses, military service courses, and other approved non-collegiate-sponsored programs are allowed.
