from obtaining an official transcript prior to graduation.
In addition, all dually enrolled students will have a dual enrollment attribute (DUAL) that will
prevent students from registering online without the appropriate permits. This is due to the
fact that permission forms are required each semester.

Will my course(s) transfer? What is STARS?
STARS stands for Statewide Transfer & Articulation Reporting System. STARS is a web-accessible database system which provides guidance and direction for prospective transfer students in the State of Alabama.
The STARS System allows public two-year students in Alabama to obtain a Transfer Guide/Agreement for the major of their choice. This guide/agreement, if used correctly, guides the student through their first two years of coursework and prevents loss of credit hours upon transfer to the appropriate public four-year university in Alabama. Although transfer guides/agreements can only be printed for two-year to four-year transfers, the STARS system can still provide guidance and direction to transfer students who have a different transfer situation.
