Transfer credit review and appeals process

Evaluating, reviewing, and appealing transfer credits at KU

Course equivalencies

  • Course transfer analysis is conducted by the Office of Admissions, based upon departmental guidelines. You can find a list of courses that have previously been evaluated for transfer credit in the CredTran tool.
  • The Office of Admissions will refer courses not already evaluated and not covered by departmental guidelines to faculty committees in the relevant departments.
  • If you would like an explanation of a course transfer decision or to appeal a course transfer decision you received, contact Casey Wallace, Assistant Director, Transfer Operations, in the Office of Admissions by email at transfercredit@ku.edu or by phone at 785-864-5447.
  • Appeals of course transfer and equivalency decisions will be directed to the next highest level curriculum committee at the school or college level.
  • Transfer issues related to school-level degree requirements will be reviewed at the school level. Appeals will be directed to a Transfer and Articulation Review Committee appointed by the provost.
