Home > Transient Credit
An Auburn student in good standing may be approved to take courses at another institution on a transient basis for one term. In order to do so, you must first fill out the transient form online.
After completion of transient course, it’s the student’s responsibility to request that a transcript be sent back to Auburn University. Send transcripts to:
The Office of the Registrar
152 S. College Street.
Auburn, AL 36849
If the course you wish to take is not listed on the online transient form, you will need to see your advisor. The respective college/school within the University can issue a "Transient Student Form". The dean or advisor indicates the courses approved to be taken elsewhere. The completed form is taken or mailed by the student to the intended university prior to course enrollment.
See Transient Approval Policy for additional information.
Effective Spring 2022, Auburn University will not award transfer credit for English-language based, short-term, winter or summer international programs. These programs are non-degree programs and are not recognized or overseen by the corresponding Ministry of Education. If you have questions about a program of this type email firstname.lastname@example.org .
To receive credit for international post-secondary work, the institution and program must be either recognized by the national Ministry of Education as a degree-granting institution/program, or it must be accredited by one of the six U.S. regional accrediting bodies. If sufficient proof of recognition or accreditation is not available, no transfer credit can be awarded.
Dependent upon the test scores received you may be eligible to receive course credit. The scores should be provided from the testing agency directly. Please call (334) 844-2539 if you have questions about what credit you are eligible to receive.Note: Auburn University does not accept CLEP credit.
