Welcome to Penn State's Transfer Credit Tool!

This resource allows you to see how courses taken at other universities will transfer to Penn State. Transfer credits are part of a student's academic history and the college in which the student is enrolled will determine how transfer credits will be used to meet degree requirements.



Important Information:

  • Credits are transferred; grades are not. The credits transferred from another school do not affect a student's grade-point average.
  • Only courses in which a grade of 'C'(2.0) or higher is earned will be considered for transfer. Course work completed on a Pass/Fail or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis typically will not be transferred.
  • Course work must be completed at a regionally accredited institution.
  • Penn State must offer a similar course or program of study in order to award transfer credit
  • Courses at Penn State carry semester hours of credit. Courses evaluated for transfer from colleges and universities with different credit systems (quarter hours, units) are converted to semester hours of credit.
  • Course work can transfer either as a specific Penn State course (i.e. ECON 102) or as general credits in a subject area (i.e. ECON XFRGEN Credits). A summary of common transfer credit designations with descriptions is found at https://admissions.psu.edu/info/future/transfer/transfer-credit-equivalencies/
  • If appropriate, general credits may be used to fulfill degree requirements. These general credits may be applied to the program of study in accordance with the policies established by the student's college of enrollment.

Please Note: Evaluations for transfer of credit by the Undergraduate Admissions Office are based upon the best available information at the time. Revisions to a course evaluation may be made based on the receipt of new information. No evaluation is officially complete until credits appear on the student's Penn State transcript.
