Requests for course equivalency
Transcript evaluation of courses will be conducted for students who request a transfer of courses taken from another university. Candidates will need to complete a course equivalency form with necessary documents. Course description and student learning outcomes should be close to the courses from the AA program to be considered as being equivalent.
The program will be offered via the Extended University. You do not need to be admitted to the university to enroll in the required courses.
There are two options for registration. Those needing graduate level credit should enroll in the 500 series ($195 per unit). Those taking the classes for professional development units (CE units) should enroll in the 800 series ($75 per unit).
