Types of Internal Transfer (Formerly Transition)
Degree TransfersA degree transfer is the process of changing from one degree level to another; associate to bachelor’s or bachelor’s to associate. There are many reasons why this might be right for you:
- You’re ready to take upper-level courses for your degree.
- You’ve completed your associate degree and wish to continue on to a bachelor’s program.
- You’ve reached the maximum number of credit hours allowed for financial aid eligibility.
- You want to take courses on the Dahlonega Campus.
- Dahlonega does not offer associate degrees, so students must be in a bachelor's program to take classes on the campus.
- NOTE: There are specific dates during pre-registration when baccalaureate students are able to cross-campus register. Please consult with the Registrar’s Office to determine the dates for cross-campus registration.
- You want to take advantage of a lower tuition rate at the associate degree level on the Blue Ridge, Cumming, Gainesville, or Oconee campuses.
Each of UNG’s five campuses is unique in its student resources and degree offerings. Associate degrees are offered on the Blue Ridge, Cumming, Gainesville, and Oconee campuses. Bachelor's degrees are offered on the Dahlonega and Gainesville campuses. UNG students can declare any of the degrees and majors offered at UNG on any campus; however, not all degrees can be completed on every campus. It is important to consult with your academic advisor and the UNG Degrees & Programs listing for more information about degree offerings by campus.
Most common reasons students change campuses:
- Degree program not offered on current campus
- Housing options
- More accessible location
- Lower student fees
- Student Life
- Corps of Cadets
Due to campus capacity, we are no longer accepting summer or fall 2017 applications for the Dahlonega and Oconee Campuses.
Spring – October 1
Summer and Fall – March 1
Applications received after the deadline will only be reviewed for acceptance if it is possible to accommodate the internal transfer request and late applications may not be processed in time for early registration. Campus capacity, course availability, and reasons for internal transfer may impact ability to accommodate late applications.
The term "transition" is being phased out and will now be referred to as "internal transfer". This website is currently being updated to reflect those changes.
