Many classes at your current or former school may be transferred to KU. However, you must submit official transcripts of completed course work before a final determination can be made.
KU uses a Transfer Equivalency System called CredTran, which is provided as a guide to how classes at your current or former school are transferred to KU. However, note that:
- The fact that a course appears in the list does not guarantee that the course will transfer in your individual case.
- After you're admitted to KU, we'll evaluate your official transcripts. Apply as early as possible because some courses may take time to evaluate. You’ll have the chance to review your Degree Progress Report (DPR) at or prior to your orientation and enrollment program to see which courses transferred and how they will apply to a KU degree.
- If the course or school you are looking for is not on the list, we will evaluate those courses after you have been admitted to KU. Keep in mind, KU does not accept any courses that are remedial, vocational, or technical in nature.
- Just because the course may transfer to KU does not mean that it will fulfill a requirement. See Understanding the Codes for more information.
- The fact that a class from your current or former school is listed does not guarantee that the school currently offers the course or plans to offer the course in the future
- CredTran is subject to frequent revision and courses are added regularly. The date at the bottom of a particular school listing reflects the latest revision date for transfer equivalencies from that school.
- Courses that haven’t been offered from an issuing institution for over ten years are not available to view on CredTran. These courses will be evaluated for transferability upon receipt of the transcript. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for equivalency information or questions.
- Junior/Senior Credit is not awarded for courses that are taught at a community college.
- “S” in front of a number indicates the course is satisfied, but junior/senior credit is not awarded.
The Office of Admissions works with students who wish to appeal the initial evaluation of a transfer course. Before you begin the appeal process you are welcome to contact the Transfer Credit Evaluation team at email@example.com. We can answer questions about the process or provide additional information about how your course transferred prior to completing an official request for re-evaluation.
When you are ready to appeal the course transfer decision please submit the Request for Re-Evaluation of Transfer Credit form.
If you believe the credit that you were awarded is correct, but believe it should satisfy a KU Core Goal, please fill out the petition form located at: http://kucore.ku.edu/petitions.
If you plan to enroll in or are already enrolled in a KU math course for the Fall term and you are taking the required prerequisite math course over the summer at another institution, please read the following:
It is the student's responsibility to check with the transferring institution to make sure an official copy of the transcript reflecting a grade for the transfer math course can be generated and mailed in time to arrive at the KU Office of Admissions and Scholarships by August 13th. Otherwise, you may be dropped from your Fall KU math course. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Admissions and Scholarships at 785-864-3911 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Western Civilization courses that transfer to KU as HIST H or HWC H do not fulfill KU's Western Civilization principal course requirement for The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. If you have further questions regarding the transfer of Western Civilization courses and what will transfer for your major, please contact your academic advisor.
