Transfer Process

Transfer Process for Fully-Online, Hybrid, and On-Site Courses

Each term, the AAP Transfer Process moves fully-online courses taught in the past to new shells for the upcoming term. This process does not apply to courses with a New Development or Revision Contract. The transfer process improves the stability and function of AAP Blackboard courses. We are asking all faculty members to complete the Transfer Request Form. An email will be sent out that includes the form. If you have questions regarding this form, please contact For Fall ’20, courses with a start date of August 31st, 2020 have a deadline of June 20th, 2020 at 11:59 PM (ET) to submit course transfer request.

Hybrid and on-site courses must request a transfer in order for past courses to be moved into new shells.

After the course is copied over (exact date will vary) and has a quick once-over check, we will notify each instructor by email. In that email, we include an individualized checklist that they will need to use to prepare their courses prior to the first day of classes. 

If a faculty member is teaching more than one section of the course, the transfer to the second section will occur at a later date. This will provide time for the faculty member to update the primary (usually the .81) section, and minimize the amount of repetitive manual labor on the faculty member’s part. In past terms, a few AAP instructors have waited until the day before the term started, and they were unable to successfully move the content due to errors. For the semester to start on time for students, we need to ensure the course can be transferred prior to the start date.
