Pre-matriculation Transfer Credit

Pre-matriculation transfer credits are reviewed by the Registrar.  Requests for the awarding of pre-matriculation transfer credit must be made to the Office of the Registrar within the first term of study. Any awarding of pre-matriculation transfer credit and formal requests for exemptions after the first term of study require a petition to the Registrar; retroactive approval is not guaranteed.

Courses offered by accredited four year degree-granting institutions are potentially acceptable for transfer credit provided the courses are an integral part of an officially defined undergraduate Arts and Sciences curriculum; those given by extension programs, junior or community colleges or internship programs are not transferable. Pre-matriculation transfer credits do not satisfy any part of the Distributive, World Culture, or Interdisciplinary requirements. Students should be aware that some departments and programs have restrictive policies toward transfer credit.

Please provide the following information when submitting your application to the Office of the Registrar:
