Transfer Credit Review & Appeals Process

The University of Kansas has identified the following review and appeals process for transfer credit evaluation.

Course Equivalencies:

  1. Course transfer analysis is conducted by the Office of Admissions based upon departmental guidelines. A list of courses which have previously been evaluated for transfer credit is available in our CredTran tool.
  2. The Office of Admissions will refer courses not already evaluated and not covered by departmental guidelines to faculty committees in the relevant departments.
  3. Individuals who would like an explanation of a course transfer decision or to appeal a course transfer decision should 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.
  4. Appeals of course transfer and equivalency decisions will be directed to the next highest level curriculum committee at the school or College level.
  5. 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.
