College Transfer Credit

Use Appalachian's Course Equivalency Search


This search function can help you determine how your credits might transfer from your previous institution.   


To access the Course Equivalency Search, go to  Click on Course Equivalency Search found in the Quick Links box on the left side of the page.  

Review your Transfer Credit.

  • You can view your evaluated credit in DegreeWorks.  Log in using your Appalachian username and password.  Once logged in, click on Class History to see how all your classes transferred from your previous institution(s).  

  • To fully understand your credit evaluation, carefully review these instructions before logging in to DegreeWorks. 

Not Seeing All Your Credits? We may not have your most recent transcripts.  You can update your courses in progress by emailing  Contact the Office of Transfer Services at 828-262-7877 for assistance.  


Make sure to review how to Petition for Credit.  A student may petition to have an Elective (ELE) credit equated to a specific course.  We suggest you begin the Petition for Credit process prior to Orientation.
