Transfer students with 13 or more transferable credits and a cumulative grade point average of 2.30 or higher will be strong candidates for admission into the baccalaureate program.

What our students think about ASU and what they've learned here:

Teresa Spencer:

As a nontraditional student, I am not treated any differently by students or professors.

I am asked by fellow students to join study groups. And when the ASL (American Sign Langage) Club found out I was interested in ASL, they asked me to join them and learn more. When you are trying to find a location on campus, everyone is willing to help, some will even walk you there.

I did an internship with the Rio Grande County Sheriff Office, and it helped me understand the law better. I was offered a job, and became a sergeant.
