Transfer Credits

Transfer Up to 75 Community College Credits 

The Interdisciplinary Studies Program is pleased to announce that as of Fall 2022, students transferring to any University of Arizona location to pursue a Bachelor of Interdisciplinary Studies (BIS) degree can apply up to 75 units from a community college to their degree plan. This signals a shift from the previous limit of 64 community college credits that could be applied to this bachelor’s degree. There will be no alteration regarding the regulations and practices in evaluating the transferability of credits to the University. This credit limit amendment allows more transferrable credits to be applied directly in pursuit of the bachelor’s degree. The College of Humanities and Interdisciplinary Studies Program sought this increase to help fulfill the land-grant mission of the University of Arizona by providing an opportunity for a diverse segment of our student population, including many who transfer from Arizona community colleges, to complete their college degree in a timely manner. 

If you have questions about the application of transfer credits to your BIS degree plan, please reach out to your academic advisor.
