AGSC-approved course lists

Alabama public four-year universities

One of the primary functions of the AGSC is to work hand-in-hand with the established discipline committees (faculty groups) to approve basic general studies courses for all of the public four-year institutions of higher education and the two-year college system in Alabama. When a course appears on an approved listing it simply means that it has been vetted through the AGSC and degree credit should be awarded upon transfer if the equivalent course is required in the transfer student's chosen major/program.

The public institutions of higher education in Alabama have all agreed to honor and accept the courses approved for transfer by the AGSC. In some cases, additional courses may be required depending on major requirements or accreditation mandates.
