Office of Transfer Admissions
Geneva Hall Suite 100
3601 Stillman Blvd

  • Credits earned at a fully accredited institution may be transferred to Stillman College and applied toward a degree. A fully accredited institution is one in good standing and a member of one of the six regional academic accrediting associations. 
  • Transfer credit below the 100 level is considered remedial work and will not be accepted toward a Stillman College degree. 
  • Stillman College does not accept transfer grades toward the Stillman College grade point average. A Stillman College grade point average is established after the first term of classes. However, all transfer grades in all courses are included and counted in the admissions process.
  • A minimum grade of D- is required for a course to be accepted by Stillman College. Colleges and departments may require a higher grade in order for the course to apply toward degree requirements. Refer to the Stillman College major sheet to review the specific requirements for each major.
  • All work from any four-year regionally accredited institution is posted to the Stillman College transcript except for remedial work.
  • Regardless of the number of hours accepted for transfer, all candidates for an undergraduate degree must complete 30 of their last 36 hours toward their degree at Stillman College.
  • Stillman College participates in an articulation agreement with the Alabama Community College System to recognize all applicable credits to specific degree programs. In this agreement, Stillman College accepts all General Education credits and program credits earned at an Alabama Community College and  appropriate to degree programs at Stillman College in order to facilitate speedy degree completion without creating the need for repetition of courses already taken.


  • The American Council on Education guidelines regarding military credit are followed, when possible.

  • Only military credit that directly applies to degree completion is added to the academic record.

  • Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) coursework is processed as traditional coursework from a regionally accredited institution.

  • Military coursework does not count toward the requisite credit hours for transfer admission, as outlined above. If students have fewer than 24 credit hours, they will be required to submit the documents outlined above for applicants with fewer than 24 credit hours.
