At Amridge University we understand the importance of knowing how much of the academic credit you previously earned will transfer when considering your enrollment options. As a result, we allow prospective students to request an unofficial evaluation of previously earned academic credit before their enrollment.
Request an Unofficial Evaluation: To ask for an unofficial assessment, send copies of your transcripts to our Academic Advisors at email@example.com or fax 334.387.3878. Be sure to include your phone number, email address, and the degree program you are most interested in pursuing at Amridge, and an advisor will contact you within approximately three business days. Note: Your evaluation is strictly unofficial until you have completed an Application for Admission and submitted all required official documents for full admission. Once fully admitted, your Official Academic Plan will be available online on the Amridge University Self Service Portal.
