Transfer Course Requirements

We generally grant credit for any course from an accredited college, completed with a grade of C or better, that corresponds to a course in our curriculum in content and credit value. Courses taken on a Pass/Fail basis receive full credit only if the professor verifies that the grade of Pass represents work at the C level or better. No credit will be allowed for work passed elsewhere by reexamination, or for correspondence or home study.

Courses submitted for transfer of credit are evaluated by the dean of the appropriate school before fall registration. Students with questions about a particular course should consult the dean of the school to which they are applying.

Transfer students can use the Transfer Credit Evaluator to see exactly which courses will transfer.

If you are an applicant from the Virginia Community College System, please read our VCCS Guide.

Admission is granted to individual schools and not specific departments within the schools. Please review coursework that should be completed prior to matriculation to each school.

Note: Students applying to transfer as second years need not have completed all of the listed requirements. Students applying to transfer as third years should complete most if not all of listed pre-requisite coursework for the selected school.
