Transfer Credits

In order for us to provide accurate information about Transfer Credits, students will first need to officially apply to the program and submit official copies of all transcripts and professional certifications, such as EMT certifications. Our transfer credit team will then evaluate your transcripts and officially determine how your credits transfer.

To apply for admissions:

  1. Review admission requirements.
  2. Click the “apply now” link for directions on the application process or proceed directly to the online application for admission through UAOnline.
  3. Once on UAOnline, select “Apply for Admission or Check on Status of Application” and follow the directions on the screen.

The BSEM in HSEM requires a minimum of 120 credits. Of these, 33 credits are required from emergency services applicable fields. Most students with professional certifications (EMT, paramedic, fire) will have satisfied this requirement. Students may also meet this requirement with an emergency services AAS degree from UAF or any regionally accredited institution within these subject areas: emergency/para-medical, environmental health and safety, fire science, law enforcement, network/cyber security, process technology, public safety or wildland fire, with a cumulative GPA or 2.25 or higher. Visit the UAF Community and Technical College for more information on these programs. Military credits also count toward this section of requirements.

 UAF has what is called a core curriculum; the core curriculum consists of requirements that all bachelor's degree-seeking students must fulfill regardless of major.

Students transferring an associates of arts degree or an associates of science degree from a regionally accredited institution will receive a waiver of the lower division UAF core requirements. All classes are evaluated on a one-on-one basis. Only grades of C- or higher are transferable to UAF. UAF operates on the semester system.
