Transfer to State Universities in Arizona
General information about transferring courses to state universities is available online through the Arizona Course Equivalency Guide website (CEG). Students attending Arizona public community colleges can see how their coursework will transfer to Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona.
The AZTransfer website provides information regarding policies and procedures for transferring credits from community colleges to the public universities in the state of Arizona. In addition, the Shared Unique Number (SUN) System website helps students identify courses that will directly transfer among Arizona’s community colleges and three public universities. Using the SUN System, students can easily search for and enroll in courses that offer direct equivalency at other Arizona colleges and universities.
