Transferring within AUCA
Academically qualified students may transfer between programs within AUCA not later than in the second year of study.
The number of students transferring is not limited. The transfer student is responsible for completing all the requirements of the Sociology Program’s curriculum. All transfers must be approved by the Chair of both the origin and destination programs, including requests to transfer back to an original program. Specific requirements should be discussed in advance with the Chair of the program. A transfer student must complete an application form signed by Chairs of both programs involved in the transfer. The incoming transfer student must meet the entrance examination requirements for the Sociology Program: essay – 70, mathematics – 20, ELPT – 470 and should include an interview by the Chair of the Sociology Program. Results from entrance exams from the previous program may be sufficient if exams are comparable between the programs. Entrance requirements waivers must be approved by the Sociology Program Chair and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Transfer qualifications for the year are determined by the Sociology Program Chair based on the student’s transcript.
The maximum number of incoming credits that may be transferred to Sociology Program major program at AUCA is 24 for every semester of studies, and only courses that match the degree offerings at AUCA will be considered for transfer. Only courses with a grade of “C” or higher will be accepted for transfer
All transfer procedures within AUCA should be completed by the end of the second week of the semester. A student who transfers while on academic probation will remain on probation for the time set by the probation order.
