Preliminary Evaluation

Preliminary Evaluation requests submitted directly to the Office of Transfer Services will typically be completed within 14 business days. During heavy articulation, the timeframe may be extended up to 20 business days.

You can create your own preliminary evaluation prior to your application to Appalachian State University by utilizing the Transfer Equivalency Course Search. If you do not see your school or course listed, it may mean we have not seen it previously. You may email the institution information and/or course description(s) to the Office of Transfer Services at for review. Please note that all North Carolina Community College courses that are accepted as transfer credit are listed on the Transfer Equivalency Course Search.

How to create a preliminary evaluation:

  1. Click ADD as you locate and review the courses from your institution(s). A course list will be populated at the bottom of the screen under “Current Selections”.
  2. Review the list of courses you have chosen. If there are courses you do not wish to include, click on the course to select it and click REMOVE SELECTED ROW.
  3. If you would like to keep a copy for your records, please select PRINT/SAVE. After you leave the search, all information will be deleted.
