The University of North Alabama is dedicated to making the transfer process as simple as possible. As required byAlabama State Law, UNA will take your course work as outlined in the appropriate Alabama Transfers guide and enable you to graduate with the same number of hours as native UNA students in the same degree program (assuming you do not change majors). Together, the Transfer Guide and the UNA Area V Page, if used correctly, will guide you through your first two years of course work and prevent the loss of credit hours upon transfer. If you have obtained a Transfer Guide for a major in English, be sure to print this page and use it along with the Guide. Upon transfer, please bring these documents to ensure a smooth academic transition.
