Occupational Health Science


The University of North Alabama is dedicated to making the transfer process as simple as possible. As required by Alabama State Law, UNA will take your course work as outlined in the appropriate STARS Transfer 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 Industrial Hygiene, be sure to print this page and use it along with the Guide. Upon transfer, please bring these documents to insure a smooth academic transition.


  • This document is not designed to replace or override Areas I-IV of the official STARS Transfer Guide. It simply provides a list of recommended course options for students who are seriously considering a transfer to UNA.
  • If you are transferring to UNA from an institution outside the Alabama Community College System, please contact the UNA Office of Admissions for the most up-to-date transfer information.
