Sometimes it's not where you start, but where you finish that matters

You are considered a transfer student if you’ve already matriculated full-time at another institution or if you’ve graduated from high school and have earned 12 or more credits at another institution.
Sooner or later, every transfer student asks two questions: How long will it take me to graduate? How much will it cost? It depends. Typically, general education classes in community college will transfer without much trouble; more specific major-oriented classes won’t. We’ve listed exactly which transferable college courses in Alabama will transfer. The general education core requirements gives you an idea of where you'll stand in your progress towards a BSC degree. Our transfer student scholarships page will give you information on scholarships, financial aid, and grants.
We will also give you a transcript analysis before you decide to enroll so that you know in advance which classes will transfer—and exactly how long it will take you to graduate. Simply call us at 205/226-4685, and let’s talk.
As for the cost, everyone’s situation is unique. The staff in our Financial Aid Office are more than happy to talk to you about your specific needs, and you can reach them at 205/226-4688. At Birmingham-Southern, you will find the opportunities, support, and connections that literally take you down any career path you choose.
